Favorite new treat...Kale?

Yes, I said it.  Kale is my favorite new treat.  I have been getting all sorts of strange things in my CSA(community supported agriculture) box that I have had to find new recipes for and I was really afraid I wouldn't find a good recipe for my giant bunch of kale.  I looked up a recipe online and this one got four stars and I totally agree.  My kids were eating these and Bea was asking for "mo' mo' mo'!"

Kale Chips

Cut the stems out of the kale and cut the leafy part up into bite sized pieces,
Lightly coat the kale in olive oil and spread them out on a few cookie sheets.  Don't pile too much on one sheet.
Sprinkle with seasoned salt or any herb/salt mixture you like.
Bake in an oven at 350 for ten to fifteen minutes until crispy but not burned.  Watch them carefully!
Enjoy! And you will.  I promise.

How do I have time for this?

I'm already trying to get back into the things I did before having Clementine.  I enjoy doing just about anything crafty or sporty.  I still have three weeks before I can hit the treadmill and work myself into the ground to get in shape.  Until then I'll stick with crafting.  This is the latest thing inspired by some really cute barrettes that were sent to me by my friend Sarah.  It only took about an hour to make all these. 

Basically I got a bunch of different colors of felt, buttons, and little flippy clips, sewed them together(you can hot glue them together if you want) and then glue the clip on and they're done.  You can get pretty creative.
