Kale’n It

Is that phrase getting old? Sure it is, but you have to admit, it’s still kind of funny. At least in the world of food humor. And I still love kale, even if it’s already had it’s “moment.” There’s something fun about the texture of it, the earthiness of it and the color of it. I’m smitten. And I think I always will be.

Winter Salads

Now, on to the salad. Some people don’t belive in eating salad in the winter. I am not one of those people. I fully endorse winter salads. In fact, I often find them more enjoyable than their summer counterparts. Full of hearty stuff that satsifies.
