Time for a happy dance, because....

{via Republic of You}
It's Friday!

This weekend I'm planning on catching up on some sewing projects I have going on, plus a bouquet I'm making for my cousin for her upcoming July wedding!  Then Sunday we will do some Easter things.  It'll be a busy weekend but I like it that way :)

Hope all of you have a great Easter weekend!

Le Kale Project

I've finally caught the kale bug...

I have to admit when I was younger I disliked kale.  I thought it was such an odd tough vegetable.  My mom would add it to our soups and salads and I would swallow it down only because I had to.  As I grew older I took kale out of my diet up until a few weeks ago, when I had the most amazing kale salad at my parents.  The ingredients were simple, just kale, some sweet peppers, balsmic viniagrette and freshly grated parmesan cheese.   As I ate the salad I forgot why I had disliked kale so much all of these years.

Immediately after that I headed out to buy me some kale! I haven't regret it since.  I bake it, I eat it in salads, I put it in my soup or just snack on it plain.  I can't get enough.  Even though my husband is impartial to the vegetable I think he'll be seeing around our household a lot.

I ran across "Le Kale Project" a few weeks ago, who knew kale was lost in France!
