Things That Piss Us Off Thursday: Volume Four

July 7, 2011

Since I have nothing else to write about, we'll do this!

Here I go:

Kale.

That's all I've got. It's the middle of my CSA season, and I still hate kale. What about you?

Kale! (Huh. Good God.) What is it good for? Absolutely nothing...

I was so freaking excited to cook my southern greens from Trader Joe's which included collard greens, kale and something equally disgusting. I put tons of bacon fat in the pan, then sauteed them like I would spinach. Result: DISGUSTING. I mean, you know something is GROSS when even bacon fat can't fix it. Someone came over to my house this year and did swiss chard with currants and balsamic and it was delicious. That's the only way I've ever had the tough greens taste edible.

Cucumber beetles doing the nasty all over my garden.

Have you tried kale in pasta yet? Basically make this http://www.marthastewart.com/316709/linguine-with-garlic-and-breadcrumbs (I know anchovies may press the same disgusting button that kale does, but I have to tell you they are the ONLY thing that's exempt from my "nothing from the sea" rule, so who knows, maybe you'd like them) and add kale partway thru step 2 (after the anchovies dissolve). Add a little hot water from the pasta pot and put a lid on it to cook the kale (I don't know, maybe 5 or 7 minutes, until it's all soft & wilty), and then follow the rest of the directions. Or leave it on MY doorstep and I'll eat it. I really will... cause I loves it. In fact I'd even trade you some freezer jam if you bring me some.

My sister only did a CSA one year because she decided she wasn't mature enough to eat that many leafy green veggies. I admire her honesty.

kale-apple smoothie: 3/4 cup chopped kale; 1 small stalk celery chopped, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup apple juice, 1/2 cup ice and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice in a blender. Blend and drink.

I completely agree. Kale is the only thing in my CSA box that I can't stand. Kale chips are a hit at my house although I hate those as well :)

white bean, sausage and Kale soup is really good! we found that is about the only thing that we could do with it that we enjoyed when we had a CSA! We still buy it just for that!
