a perfect summer meal
It's been so freaking hot here, I can hardly stand to cook anything. A few weeks ago, though, I finally got around to making the kale chips that so many folks have been talking about forever. I used red kale and followed this recipe, recommended by Claire. The only note I'd make about the recipe is that there's no need for the parchment paper- luckily I just threw it into my compost. Sadly, neither Jared nor either of my officemates liked them. Luckily I did...more for me! I think I'll try them again with regular green or dinosaur kale, the red kale is much thinner and made for a super flaky chip. They were the perfect addition to a simple meal of salad and roasted potatoes. Top it off with a glass of herbal iced tea, and you've got yourself a delicious balanced meal.
What's your favorite summer meal?
