Today is the first day of my summer vacation, and to celebrate I decided to do something fun. So I got up early and made kale chips! What? Not exactly what you would call a really fun first day of vacation activity? Okay, fine. The truth is, I had a big bunch of kale sitting in my fridge from my last produce box. Included with the kale was a simple recipe for kale chips, which was a good thing, because I surely haven't the foggiest idea of what to do with kale.
All the recipe calls for is kale, washed and cut into pieces, olive oil, and sea salt. Easy peasy. Why not turn this into one of those blogger posts that shows the author demonstrating the whole process, step by step, with a beautiful plate of something delicious at the end?
I baked them in the oven for 40 minutes on 275. Eyeing them skeptically as they baked, I was sure that I would like them because I love vegetables and I love chips and olive oil and salt.
And now, for a taste of these little chips of health and goodness:
Heh, I love taking pictures of my self eating kale.
Uh...I'm not sure I'm going to like this...
PS-This was almost as good as when I made beet chips but forgot that eating large amounts of beets turn your poop red and when I told my buddies on my walking team what happened they all pretended like they had no idea what I was talking about.
