lunch, lately.

January 12, 2012

kale kale. washed in cold water. drizzled in lemon juice and olive oil. a shave or two of pecorino or parmesan, a pinch of salt and pepper. eggs and bread to round things out. a remedy for what ails me and then some.

other things:
eat more kale.
stunning citrus from hungry ghost.
habanero tequila. with grapefruit juice. a nice accompaniment to lunch. no?

    I need to eat more kale.

    And possibly drink less tequila.

    Oh my, that looks delicious! Well, not so sure about kale – I really should try it one of these days – but I could definitely see that same dish with baby spinach instead!

      marie. don't walk, run, to your nearest winter farm market and grab some fresh kale. there's no going back!

    Oh man, my stomach is growling right now. Wish I had it in me to wake up a half hour earlier than normal tomorrow in order to make a hearty breakfast. Alas, I'll wait for Saturday and enjoy my chocolate croissant on the train during the week šŸ™‚

      not a bad start to the day, either.

    Lovely. It would be a very nice breakfast too! What do you drink with it?

    Looks great, did you saute the kale? It's so very good for you. Have a beautiful weekend, dear.

      hey julie,

      no need to saute the kale. just massaging it in cold water does the trick to take away any bitterness. plus, kale picked in the wintertime is sweeter than warmer weather kale, anyway!

    beautiful. looks wonderful and healthy

    Kale is supposed to be so great for weight loss. My dad blends it into his health shakes. I can't wait to get over my blah taste for it.
