A new addition to the garden this year was kale. Though we've grown several different kinds of lettuce and greens in the past, this summer was the first time we tried growing kale and had no idea how it would turn out.
It turns out it has half taken over our little garden!
Kale grows very quickly and we find ourselves eating it every single day - in salads, in stir fry, chopped up and sauteed with every meat and potato and vegetable dish we make. Fortunately, it's both healthy and delicious and the whole family loves it.
Yesterday I tried my hand at kale chips - such a quick, easy treat to make! Spread kale leaves on a pan, drizzle lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt, and bake for eight to ten minutes at 300F.
