Sounds weird, I know but TRUST me on this one. They are so delicious and you can eat a huge amount of kale in one sitting. Even kids will love them, seriously. It’s in season for a long time so you might as well learn to eat it and love it.
This is a really basic recipe, and you can modify it by adding different herbs or nutritional yeast.
Want a fun craft to do with your favorite little one? This quick, easy project can turn a handy garden marker into a work of art. All you need is some flat rocks, paint brushes, paint (preferably tempera paint if working with kids), and your imagination. If desired, you can seal your design with acrylic spray to seal it.
