This morning I woke up early, read for a while, then cleaned my kitchen. I organized my recipes for the week, did my shopping (and didn't buy anything ridiculous or unnecessary), whipped up some lemonade, and repotted my basil plant. And I still have the whole afternoon ahead of me!

It's good to be back!

If anyone wants to come over for dinner tonight, I am going to attempt that kale pie. Let me know if you want in. The more the merrier!

We will be making kale pie together.

Cuisine... crossing continents! Crossing nations! Bringing fatties together!

How did you like it? I thought it was not bad--if I make it again I will probably add a couple of other layers of veggies--I think artichoke hearts would be really good. I have a lot of leftovers and I don't know how they will taste, but we shall see tomorrow!

I have just posted my thoughts here for the most part. I thought it was good but needed adjustment. I'm not sure I'd add more veggies, as I felt I wound up with too much on the crust for it to bake well, but maybe with less pesto underneath? I agree artichoke hearts could figure in there somewhere effectively, though. Or roasted asparagus.

I found the 1/6th of a pie serving size laughable. I cut into 4 pieces and ate one, then waited a while, then had another, though probably I only needed half of the second piece. So maybe 1/3 of a pie as a main dish, though to be fair lunch was only soup and mac/cheese and I'd just danced for an hour. I guess 1/4th might do with a big salad? I could have had a big salad but the walnuts in the kale pesto were just too compelling. I think for the remaining two slices, I will try to pair them with a good salad and some foccacia or something.

Then again, I am a big fatty who is on my way to being dead because I cannot even follow heart-healthy guidelines for policing my massive food intake.

Thanks for the recipe! I now also have some great organic heirloom kale left over and I'll have to sort it out on its own late this week or early next.
