Hey guys! I am so sorry to leave you hanging! On top of my website building issues, I had hardware issues too! The wireless switch on my laptop quit working! I am on Mallards tiny HP Mini right now. He took my laptop to work today and the IT guy there said that we may be able to get it working by using a wireless card. I hope that’s the case because the repair would be $400 according to Geek Squad. Holy Mole’!
Anyway, I had taken off work today because my babysitter is on vacae all week. So, Snuffy and I hit up Whole Foods, Kroger and Starbucks! I have pics from our grocery adventure and from Starbucks! But, unfortunately I can’t move them from my phone onto this tiny laptop. 😦
Right now, I am making some kale chips. If you have never made your own,you are missing out on some crunchy deliciousness. Here is a lil how-to if youcare to try.Snuffy actually ate some the last time I made them! In fact , on the way home from the grocery excursion today, I looked in my rear-view mirror and saw her munching on raw kale out of my shopping bag. It wat sticking out the top because I didn’t want it to get bruised. I had to giggle. I love that she likes healthy foods. But, that kale had obviously not been washed…not a good thing, Martha. So, I had to move the kale out of Snuff’s reach. She can have some kale chips after her nap. Mallard hates it when I make them. He says it makes the house smell funny. Idon’t smell it. However, I like saurkraut and all kinds of other smelly food so maybe I’m immune!
Here are some fun kale facts via everynutrient.com:
Kale provides an excellent source of vitamins B6 and C, carotenes, and manganese.
It is also a very good source of vitamins B1, B2, and E, fiber, iron, copper, and calcium.
Kale has almost three times as much calcium as phosphorus. This is a beneficial ratio because high phosphorus consumption has been linked to osteoporosis since it reduces the utilization and promotes the excretion of calcium.
Kale and collardgreens exhibit the same anticancer properties as other members of the cabbage family.
