kale, laughter and music - coming together in the kitchen

oh boy oh boy... we're really cooking up some gumption now.  

the boys went to baseball last night and abbie and i decided to capture ourselves cooking together... it was one of those, "let's do something silly shall we?" and oh what fun we had.  we hope you like our first team installment - cooking with kale 1,2,3,4,5... thank you miss iphone, you did a great job in the mullies and i'll definitely hire you again.

this next one is super funny cuz abbie does the taping in the beginning.  put your seatbelt on sally.

i couldn't hit play fast enough for her on this one... perhaps she'd make a good auctioneer? 

and last but not least, we eat our yummy kale creations and break it down.

kale with tomatoes and onions

1 bunch organic kale (ribs removed and chopped)
1 organic yellow onion sliced
1 cup organic grape tomatoes halved
1/2 c white wine

sauté chopped kale ribs and onions in evoo until translucent.  add grape tomatoes and cook until tomatoes release juices and onions start to carmelize.  add in white wine and cook down for a bit.  stir in kale leaves until wilted.  season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

i think i like the 350 degrees a bit better.  that's what i get for not checking my notes and putting my timer on... charred kale!!

abs, i love you girl and i can't wait to do this with you again!  thanks for cooking up a storm with me last night.  do you remember when you would struggle to try anything on your plate?  and remember that not too long ago, you didn't have much interest in cooking with me either!  you are growing up   i am so happy i kept asking and you kept trying.   i am so happy we have a special place to laugh and talk and learn and make memories with each other.  and more than anything else, i dream that you'll be teaching me some day:)  

to the mullies we go.
