greens: avocado, kale, terra.

Power breakfast.

Garlicky kale. (From this recipe.) Seems almost too simple, but this is delicious. (Well, I thought so. B was a good sport and had a bite, but his take on this kale was that it “feels like the skin of a bat.” More for me!)

Time for the second ball of Peace Fleece. I set aside a few hours on Saturday morning for knitting and podcasts, and made some serious progress on this shawl. I’m hoping to squeeze a few rows into my Monday morning to help me get ready for the day — last week’s writing is the subject of this afternoon’s discussion…

  1. “Skin of a bat”…haha! That’s hilarious! I actually had a HUGE aversion to leafy greens — and vegetables in general, actually — during my first trimester (which was terrible because I a) usually love them and b) was planning on eating tons for their folic acid content). The loud grumbling noise coming from my stomach upon seeing your pan of garlicky kale is further indication that the aversion is gone…which makes me very happy! Mmmm….kale….

    Happy Monday! Good luck with this afternoon’s discussion and I hope your week is off to a great start!

  2. Wow, the yarn you’re using looks good – is it soft or does it feel more like a shetland yarn? I can relate to your friend – kale is too bitter for my taste. The green looks great, though! Have a good week!

  3. Avocado is such an awesome breakfast food, yum yum. I love that kale recipe too, and Terra is looking cosy and perfect. Love that colour. These greens of yours, they please me very much.

  4. I’m a Southern girl. Kale was a “foreign food” when I was growing up. Our greens were turnip greens and collards. Have to admit I like the green of your Terra more than I like the green in the pan.

  5. Thanks for the post, this looks amazing. One of my favorite dishes is Steamed Kale topped with a Ginger-Miso dressing and sesame seeds.

  6. Lots of lovely greens! I hope the discussion went well. I’m still in work-work-work mode, and it’s amazing how much you can accomplish when you really dig in your heels!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  7. So much green! I love, love, LOVE the Terra in Peace Fleece — it’s perfectly rustic and GREEN! Avocado is delicious any time of day and should be celebrated often.
    A question: how does B know what the skin of a bat feels like? That is my concern.

  8. Yes, a very green post! :) Healthy, too! Terra is looking wonderful, such a cozy knit! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you… Hope Boh gets a little of the turkey, too! :)

  9. Sauteed kale is awesome! We eat it weekly. Especially when we eat whole wheat macaroni or pasta. It balances the meal out. Keep it up! Try other greens too – chard is the another good one.
