SO MUCH KALE!
Our garden is finally lousy with kale, and I cannot WAIT to eat it. This is my favorite salad recipe, with grilled chicken of course and a little freshly grated parm. I also like to make kale chips by lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper, tearing my kale into little pieces and throwing it on the sheet, adding a little oil mixed with garlic and chili powder, sprinkling with salt and pepper, and baking at 350 until crispy.
I really thought that now that we have a sportsball hiatus (THANK YOU, UNIVERSE), we would totally relax and eat family dinner without constraint. BUT! Jack has 2 dive clinics over the dinner hour. I have a Madison Mom's Blog thing, and we promised the kids we could use their free tickets from the library reading program to see a minor league baseball game.
So! Chicken to grill for salads is on my list, along with hot dogs and sandwich stuff, and eggs, bacon and buttermilk so I can always whip up breakfast for dinner.
Oh! I got up early to make these cookies for Harry's last baseball tournament. I only had chocolate pudding on hand, but they were COMPLETELY DELICIOUS.
