(Disclaimer – I am not a kale fan, and the popular leafy green will be heavily disparaged in this post.)
I’m a good girl. I eat my veggies, green and otherwise.
Yes, Popeye I even eat my spinach.
Hell, I live in Maine… I have been served dandelion green and Nasturtium bloom salad and smiled. (Although I do draw the line at Fiddleheads, those slimy aborted fern fronds people in New England go beserk for every spring. If I’m going to ingest something I pick alongside the road it had better be blackberries. Preferably in brandy form. But I digress.)
Throw a little kale in my salad, fine. I won’t revolt. (Hell, if you smother it in enough blue cheese dressing I might not even notice)
But please… for the sake of all that’s holy…. stop trying to incorporate it into everything else.
My girlfriend served a big bowl of kale chips with French Onion Dip at a party. (Not cool…. bring back my Ruffled Lays.)
Another friend invited us over for an Italian dinner. Sweet! Until I saw the lasagna as well as the ravioli was stuffed with kale. (That’s just wrong.)
I do not want your kale frittata.
Your kale burgers, your kale pie….
And most of all your kale pizza!
That’s just sacrilege.
The kale craze has gone too far.
Okay, it’s nutritious… but enough’s enough.
From now on I’ll be flying my new banner high and proud.
Long live Rocky Road!!
All hail Mint Chocolate Chip!
