One of the joys of shopping at the Farmer's Market is experiencing odd foods.  I say odd, because before the Farmer's Market, I would've never considered eating kale.  Kale was one of those foods everyone says you should eat but you never do because, well, it's odd.  Mom never cooked it, which I suspect was because she didn't like it.

I called a friend of mine who has since become my gourmet expert who told me how to cook kale.  She said it's so strong that blanching it would help the taste before cooking it.  She also recommended cooking it with something strong like bacon because it actually can hold its own.  Well, when I got home Tuesday, I decided to try it out.  I had a small disaster where the stove caught on fire (sigh), but after putting that out, I blanched the kale and made Scrambled Eggs and Kale for dinner.  I also added some sliced buffalo steak leftovers to the mix.  It was awesome, to say the least. 

Now, I'm not afraid of kale and I might just consider growing some in my garden.
