Kale Chips!

Some friends recommended we try making kale chips. Kale is super cheap
and the recipe is simple so what's to lose? So today Elisabeth helped
me prepare the Kale for the oven.

1) Clean and thoroughly dry the kale. 2) Remove the stem. 3) Cut or
tear into similarly sized pieces. 4) Add to bowl along with 1 TB of
olive oil and salt as desired. 5) Stir until evenly coated and then
spread on a pan covered with parchment paper. 6) Place in oven that is
preheated to 350 degrees. 7) Bake until slightly brown - for my oven
turned out to be about 7-8 minutes.

The astounding thing was Elisabeth actually ate a couple of pieces
without any coercion. Afterwards, she said, "I don't want any more
because it looks like seaweed." Oh well, she still ate a vegetable
that wasn't green beans so mission accomplished!
