I also promise to talk about my daughter again one of these days. But for now just allow me my honeymoon phase for a post or two longer.
The first recipe I actually made from the cookbook I've been talking about non-stop for six days was a kale salad earlier today. But not just any kale salad - think goat cheese, walnuts, cranberries and a delectable honey-dijon dressing. The key is to let it all marinate together for awhile - as long as possible, really. J and I had it for lunch, and then again at dinner, along with some grilled sausages. It was even better the second time. But don't take it from me. Take it from J, who in the grand scheme of things comes down on the anti-kale side of the fence:
"This is good. I'm actually surprised by how good it is. I would eat this even if I wasn't on a diet, like, as regular food."
I'd post a picture, but it's long gone.
