Good evening Friends,
I want to get this out before ‘Survivor’ comes on. This is the only show we watch on TV and we’ve been watching it since the beginning. We are NOT fans of TV. Did not have it as newlyweds living in Spain for a little over 3 years, and did not have it for about 15 years after we got home. Then we found a couple of TV’s curbside, brought them home plugged the best one in and saw that ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ was coming on so watched that, then saw Survivor and Big Brother advertised and watch them too. For awhile we were watching TV every night for several hours. As the years progressed, we watched less and less, until now we are down to ‘Survivor’ twice a year and that is plenty. I will be making a bowl of popcorn, slathered with butter and sprinkles of herbs, etc. We are looking forward to it.
This morning I made a ‘list’ of things to do, I ended up doing probably 3-4 of the items. I wore myself out weedwacking, using the electric hedge trimmers, cutting other things back, raking and bagging for about 3 hours, sweating buckets as it has not cooled down any and will most definitely be ready for bed tonight.
The other day I read about kale and it’s benefits, so bought a bag. I first made cannellini beans with chicken sausage and kale, scrumptious, and will definitely be making it again.
DH suggested making a pizza using kale as part of the toppings. Neither of us had heard of that, but he thought it sounded like it ought to work. I decided to do this for supper tonight, and googled to see if there was anything out there, and there was.
I cooked up our usual 2 Italian sausage links, set that aside, then cooked up onion, garlic, and Italian seasoning in some extra virgin olive oil and added several handfuls of kale, put the lid on and cooked until limp and bright green. We tasted the kale before putting on pizza and both loved the flavor and texture. We kept saying how delicious it was while we enjoyed half of the pizza tonight with some red wine. We will have the rest another night when I’ll be working the next three days.
Here are pictures.
That’s it for now. I’m ready for bed already, but that won’t be for another 1 1/2 hours yet.
Weed wacking always wears me out. I ache, had a slight headache earlier before dinner. I think I did a little too much today. Sometimes it is just so hard to quit.
I’ll be working at my job for the next three days so won’t be exerting physical energy, just mental and dealing with people energy, which may be worse, if you know what I mean.
May you all be blessed with love, peace and well being.
