Good Cooks Always Have Friends

This post is dedicated to Andrew Delveaux & Amy Horton. I LOVE these two and am so glad they ventured into my life this spring! Tuesday evening we made dinner at Andrew’s… I mean Bobby Flay’s. Good food, great company!

MENU

Kale Chips

To make this healthier alternative to potato or tortilla chips simply do the following:
Ingredients:
-1 or 2 bunches of kale (1 head = 2 baking sheets of chips)
-olive oil
-salt
-nutritional yeast (optional)

Remove the kale from the hard ‘ribs’,rinse, and dry. Tear into bite size pieces and place in a bowl with 3-4 tbsp olive oil & a few dashes of salt. Options to add any other spices or flavor combinations. I added some nutritional yeast to half the batch.
Bake at the lowest temperature until crispy (at least an hour) or at 300 for about 20-30. Midway through remove and toss around to prevent burning. Great alone or dipped in ketchup…yum yum yum!

Raspberries in the ceramic pint dish Amy gifted me! This will get SO much use!

Quinoa Salad

Garden Salad
Sauteed Spinach & Garlic (yum!!!!!)

and DESSERT!….

No meal is complete without dessert! Thanks to Amy & her mad kitchen skills we had a raw pie. The filling was avocado, mango, banana, and coconut oil in a date & almond crust. It was insanely good…. can you tell we loved it?!?!

We had this tasty meal on Andrew’s porch with intermittent moments of silence screaming when the el rode by just a stone throws away.

I can’t wait until the next kitchen adventures with all us! I just may have to make special trips to Chicago :)
