Iron Carol


Grilled and Sliced
Originally uploaded by killy
Carol and I have gotten into the habit of preparing the weeks meals (dinners and take-to-work lunches) on Sunday. Today, after a stunning grocery shopping trip to Fiesta on Wirt Rd, we came away with a new ingredient - Kale.

I know nothing about Kale other than it's a lettuce, it's a little more bitter (some say tastier) and it's supposedly more substantial than Romaine, nutrition-wise. If anyone has any Kale stories, suggestions, or cautions ...

Carol has unleashed herself upon the kitchen and created three stunning recipes for the week - think Iron Chef. I only saw her run to the computer for recipe assistance once. This, of course, doesn't surprise any of you. Carol on more than one occasion has whipped up something before your eyes for nearly all of those of you who read this blog. For me, it's still just as magical an event as when she was whippping up breakfasts and brunches for us on Burleson.

It grows really well and easily and is super hardy.
There is this sweet and spicy sauce that we get at an Asian grocery called.....Mae Ploy....I believe...anyway that and sauteed Kale are super Duper.
