We had amazing weather this weekend. I did so much yard work and gardening. I’m sore, tired and hot. Here’s a few of the eats I enjoyed over the weekend.
This is not my first time adding Kale to a smoothie, a while back I did a post called Keeping Up with Kale. I enjoy adding greens to my smoothie, you get a nice color and it adds a little texture.
Added to my Fitmixer protein powder, makes a nice think shake.
This is my third kale smoothie this week, yummy.
After blending the kale leaves become tiny flecks.
For dinner I used the rest of the kale for Kale Chips. I used my toaster oven, it works great for small batches, if I have a large batch I use the oven.
- Preheat oven to about 375*
- Tear the leaves off the thick stems into bite size pieces. Spread out on baking sheet
- Drizzle with about 2 tsp of olive oil
- Season with your favorite spices
- Bake for about 15 minutes, until edges are brown and kale is crispy
We ate dinner on the deck again tonight, I love dining outdoors, plus I wanted to take in all the work I had done, I love doing yard work and gardening. I am really excited to pick out all my annual flowers for pots which I plan on planting over the Memorial Day Holiday. I will be posting a lot of flower pictures this summer.
Question of the Day: Do you eat outside on nice days?
