Sometimes kale can be scary.
I’ve had some nasty bites of kale recipes. And I gave up on it for a while. But this week, I’m really trying to clean it up after all the birthday celebrations so I’m trying to eat more vegetables and mostly paleo. Just mostly. I got a lot of Starbucks gift cards for birthday — I love my skinny vanilla lattes!
Anyways, I chopped that kale up and sautéed it with some bacon and apples.
I mostly followed this recipe from Real Simple — really no changes needed to make it paleo, but I skipped the apple cider vinegar out laziness and skipped the salt & pepper.
Paleo Sautéed Kale With Apples and Bacon
- 4 slices bacon
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 apple, sliced
- 1 medium bunch kale, thick stems removed and leaves torn into bite-size pieces
- kosher salt and black pepper
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then crumble.
- Add the onion and apple to the drippings in the skillet and cook until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the kale, season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes more. Mix in the bacon and vinegar.
I’m thinking about adding sweet potatoes next time!! And I’m glad I used up some of my kale.
It’s been funny — every time the rain clears up, the parks nearby are instantly slammed. We’re not used to such limited sunshine and we soak it up!!!!!
But, I went for a jog… got caught in the rain. To the point where I was starting to worry about my phone!!!
It made it!
I didn’t say it was fast… some of the muddy blocks were treacherous!!!!
Pippa was really happy to be at home on the couch. She’s normally not allowed on that couch, but she just hates it when I sit out there and read. There’s nowhere comfortable for her!!!! Poor baby.
But my little Boyd Bear is a rug!!!! And he sheds so much he will never be allowed on any furniture but the old futon. That hair comes off in tufts!!! Don’t feel bad. He has built-in padding.
Umm… did someone send me this???? It’s a mystery. It came addressed to me!! No note. Not invoice. And Special K bars???? That’s totally random. It wasn’t from the Special K… it was in a USPS Priority Mail Box coming to me from Michigan??
Next time send Cheetos, please. :)
Have you ever gotten any mystery mail? I also once got an Orla Kiely diaper bag in the mail. I thought someone was trying to drop a hint, but it turns out my in-laws shipped it for a baby shower gift for a cousin. Haha.
Do you like kale? For real?? :)
Do you like to run in the rain? It’s so slippery!! That scares me. Especially since I never have my contacts in. I think it’s overrated but can be refreshing.
