Thank goodness the kale didn't turn out like all my brussel sprout recipes. I super love kale chips. Not only is the "recipe" easy -- throwing some oil and salt on kale leaves hardly counts as a recipe -- and super tasty, but they're also good for you. What's best? Idle Husband looked at them, said that they were green, took the tiniest nibble (I don't even know if a person could taste something that small), and snubbed his nose at them. So that means THEY'RE ALL MINE. Mmmmm.
I made some more today along with some sweet potato chips. The first batch of chips turned out not badly burned but just about. Crispy but with that smokey burned taste no one really likes. I don't mind, though. They're nice and crisp and have an underlying sweet potato flavour. The second batch was better, but I was kind of in a hurry to get them done so I didn't put salt or anything on them so they were a little dull.
Also, just for something to do (and because neither of us ever have), Idle Husband and I went around looking at show homes yesterday. One of the homes had a room decked out in a movie director/Hollywood theme, so I guess that would explain these choices in the master bedroom:
The thought of someone actually changing the stock photos in these frames and replacing them with Mike Myers and Nathan Lane & Matthew Broderick really boggles my mind. Especially for decoration in the master bedroom...on the bedside tables. Right where you're supposed to be envisioning a peaceful sleep. Like, really. I'm totally boggled.
