When your kale is cooked just right, it’s perfectly stiff and when you touch them they flake into millions of tiny pieces.
It’s been one heck of a busy week! I totally overbooked today. First with a committee meeting I’m chairing one section of for my son’s school, then I zoomed to fundraising luncheon for Food Matters, and then had a killer photo shoot for my new haircut….and then helped my son study for his upcoming tests.
Exhausting but fulfilling day.
So when I wanted a little snack, I decided to make this quick video for you on facebook live. Because I don’t want to get bloated before tomorrow morning’s photo shoot, (yes, 2 shoots in 2 days), it was important to make something light and healthy. And I figured you might like this recipe for 5 minute crispy kale. My husband loves it so much he makes sure we include it for Thanksgiving.
My friend wrote the BEST review ever via text…so I’m including that for you to see too….because it’s just too funny.
I hope you enjoy it as much as she did! Tell me what you think?
PS- Several of you have asked about microwaves….and here’s the thing: The original microwaves that were first constructed may have had some concerns. But every microwave myth has been debunked by (legitimate) studies. And NEWER microwaves don’t have the issues that their great, great grandparents had. You can always make crispy kale in the oven too. I haven’t figured out the oven formula where they are all perfectly cooked though. Maybe cook them in smaller batches??
Day 1: Black Shirt – Jeans: Mother | Shirt: TJ Maxx | Shoes: Chinese Laundry | Bag: Kate Spade | Earrings: Kendra Scott
Day 2: Black and White Striped shirt – Jeans: Mother | Shirt: H& M | Earrings: Kendra Scott
Hair is now chopped off, and stylish jeans are actually being worn (I normally hate jeans, but these are surprisingly comfortable). Funny story though….when I put these new jeans in the dirty laundry (yes, they are brand new even though they have holes in the knees and a torn up look), hubby pulled them out. He was so mad we had distressed clothing in the dirty laundry. (He thought our son had torn up his new pants!) He wanted to GIVE THEM AWAY!! Haaa!
Anyway, this was perfect for a casual business conference where a friend and I flew in (wearing these jeans, black shirt, cute black flats – not shown…then changed into the heels just before walking into the conference), rushed to the conference, spent 1 night, then left just before the end of the 2nd (and final day of the conference).
For the second day. I wore a fresh shirt, new accessories, and the same jeans, same flats (not pictured) to walk to the conference center, (then changed into these heels before walking into the conference) as the day before.
And guess what?
The only carry on item on the entire trip, was this red Kate Spade bag. Purse, carryon, and fashion statement piece all in one. 😉
They say whenever a woman cuts her hair it’s because of a big life change.
Well, let’s see….
– My daughter is “adult’ing” in Europe for a year
– My son is no longer in homeschool
– My dog no longer follows me around every step I take….
Since no one seems to “need” me to mother them anymore maybe it IS time to celebrate this new phase of life with a fresh new look.
What do you think?
Do you know how much I love being a 40+ model signed with the coolest agency around? Because they book me for some of the coolest jobs around!
The moment you walk through the door, a friendly face (with long, gorgeous eyelashes…of course) welcomes you in, and shows you the different styles of lashes you can get; natural, cute, sexy, or gorgeous. As much as I want to go all out with the glamorous lashes, I also have to think long-term and because I have a photo shoot next week to update my portfolio with a whole new look……(more about that later!) So I went with the “Natural” look. So glad I did because even the natural look is oh so sexy (and cute and gorgeous – Haa!)!
There is most likely an Amazing Lash Studio near you. They have great intro prices and reasonable monthly fees so you can stay up to date on your fills without breaking the bank. I went to the Tempe Marketplace location and Natasha did my lashes. What do you think?
I can’t wait to see more of their looks at the upcoming Phoenix Fashion Week! If you’re local, I hope to see you there too. If you’re not, no worries, I’ll still share all the beauty and fun with you then.
Wishing you a beautiful day!
