Green

Since we got all kinds of awesome greens in our recent food delivery we've been doing our best to get creative with how we eat them. Thursday night we had our first ever turnip greens (delicious) and at the recommendation of everyone, we tried some kale chips this weekend.

All I did was remove the bitter stems, tossed my leaves in some olive oil and salt and then pop them in the oven for 20 minutes.





I wasn't really sure what to expect, but Keith and I were both pretty happy about how much we liked them. They are no substitute for potato chips, but are definitely a great salty snack that is super quick and easy to make. Since we liked them I decided to cut up the rest of the kale that we have so that if we wanted some more on the fly all I would have to do it toss them in the oven. I also really like this idea of crumbling the chips up and sprinkling over some pop corn.

All that aside, Keith did have a pretty great comment after his first bite: "oh hey, this kinda just tastes like I'm eating crunchy fall leaves!" Yep. Yep it does hahaha
