Have some kale.

It’s pissing rain outside and my tea’s gone cold and my brain is basically on autopilot and words are hard so here’s a picture of a raindrop in a nest of ornamental kale that I took for my photo blog because it was pretty.

I’m gonna go make another cup of tea, and if I can actually manage to drink it while it’s warm this time I’m still going to call this day a win.

  1. I always thought kale was green! Like spinach. Obviously I have never tried it. I’ve been told it’s like chewy weeds.
    pretty though! And I forget that you have a separate photo blog – so much work! Are you NaNoPoBlaNoing over there too?

  2. Does the ornamental kale taste the same as the boring stuff? Because I typically hide mine in soups or smoothies (I don’t hate the taste, but a couple of bites in my tongue starts whining about the fact that there are marshmallows somewhere in the house and there’s probably an excuse to be made for putting those on a salad instead of boring ol’ kale and it’s just not worth arguing with my own tongue, you know?) but if it were pretty, that opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

  3. This is the first time I’ve been offered kale that I really wanted it.
    Admittedly I have eaten it a few times and enjoyed it, but it’s hard to get past the association from my first encounter with kale. I had a job restocking the salad bar at a restaurant. We used kale as a garnish to hide the metal frame that held the containers of lettuce, salad dressings, croutons, and so on.
    Each night I’d carefully remove the kale, bag it, and put it in the refrigerator.
    We used the same kale for up to a week.
    I should have recognized at the time that anything that lasts that long has to be good for you.

    • Hahaha I may or may not have worded the title how I did to be a little bit of a troll. 😉

      And yeah, a 100% kale salad is at least 67% too much kale for my taste. I like to do one third kale, one third rainbow chard, one third lettuce. Really nice mix of textures and flavors.
