current obsession.

I believe I’m a little late to this party. but I’m here now.

current obsessionkale.

I’ve had it every single day, for the past seven days. [told you, obsessed]. I am almost certain you’ve heard the buzz about kale. it’s health benefits are through the roof, and reason enough to include it in your diet. but it’s also so versatile. I just started tossing it in all sorts of recipes. everything from scrambled eggs, to sandwiches, and a stir-fry.

my favorites.

kale saladthe easiest: simply mix fresh kale + your favorite salad ingredients [for me: onions, carrots, celery, & almonds] + oil & balsamic vinegar [or your preferred dressing]. toss & enjoy!

kale stir frykale is ahhh-mazing cooked.

cook in a skillet: kale + your choice of stir fry veggies [I used: onions, garlic, bell peppers, celery, & carrots] with olive & sesame oil. place over quinoa, rice, or enjoy solo. top with toasted sesame seeds!

chicken noodle soup with kalethere is nothing better than a great soup on a cold, winter night. or any night, for that matter. on monday I’ll be posting my recipe for: chicken noodle soup + kale. 

If you use kale, what are some of your favorite recipes? If you haven’t, are you going to give it a try? don’t answer that ..wait until I post my recipe on monday! :)

happy thursday.

obsession – faux glasses.

This is not a joke. Jeff bought these for his santacon costume, but before he had a chance to wear them ..I stole them & made them mine. I wear them, a lot. As “ridiculous” as you may think they look, I’ve gotten numerous [serious] compliments.

I’ll admit …they’re a tad “out there,” but I’m 99.8% sure they have special powers. It’s always fun to guess whether people are looking at you in envy or “what is that girl thinking?”. Hey, I’ve seen bolder fashion statements. You can call me Harry, Waldo, or just plain crazy.

Be bold, wear faux glasses 8)
