20 - kale
Ever hear someone use this excuse to start drinking alcohol early in the day? "It's happy hour somewhere in the world." I was thinking about that as I went to the Co-op to buy some greens. Greens that I was craving to nourish my body and help my baby grow. Specifically, I was craving kale that is not in season in the Midwest. And that phrase popped into my head. I adjusted it to: "It must be in season somewhere in the world." As it turns out, it's in season on this continent, California. So, I brought it home, blanched it, then sprinkled it with a Tuscan herb olive oil and some black cherry balsamic vinegar. Both Baby and I were happy. She kicked her appreciation.
