On Saturday night when Kevin and I met friends for dinner, we took an Uber car because it was raining. We asked the driver how business was going, and he replied that it’s been slow since New Year’s Day. All of us laughingly said that a lot of people are out of money this time of year. I started thinking about it, and I realized that it’s probably not just about money, but that January is a time of contraction.
At this time of year, most people stay home and lead a simpler life. They are tired of entertaining, go back to being on a budget and have a couple of holiday pounds to lose (me included). While I can’t help anyone with either of the first two issues, I can give you a healthy recipe full of antioxidants. And kale chips are delicious!
|Thoroughly dry the kale|
|Place the bite-sized chips onto 2 baking sheets and sprinkle with sea salt|
|Turn the chips over and move drier edge pieces into center|
of baking pans and wetter center pieces to edges
|The kale chips are ready when they're dry and crispy|
1 bunch kale
2-3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Remove center stems from kale and tear into 2-3 inch pieces. Wash and dry thoroughly. Toss with olive oil and spread evenly onto 2 baking pans. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and turn kale over. Bake an additional 5-15 minutes until kale is crispy.
