The epitome of healthy eating on a budget: safeway sells these huge 2lb bags of chopped kale for $1.99! I see a lot of green smoothies in my future. But I started by sauteing onions and garlic in a big pan, then filling it up with kale (barely used a quarter of the bag), adding a little chicken broth, and letting it simmer for a good 20 minutes with lots of black pepper, a dash of sea salt, and cracked red pepper. Perfect as a side dish with dinner, and I especially love it mixed up with scrambled eggs.
First CSA box of the fall season from Calvert Farm in Cecil County, MD. So excited to see the amazing variety—this was definitely not the box full of chard that I was apprehensively expecting. First meal was a huge, beautiful, nutritious, yummy success:
-sweet potato fries
-sauteed kale and shallots
-oven roasted winter squash
Served with a nice piece of trout (From the grocery store, not from the box).
