There are no bad foods, only bad cooks.


Have you tried Pop Tarts?

 

I stand corrected.  Or never considered them food.

I think it's the 2nd alternative.

With apologies to our many kale-haters, I adored my burger.    Husband ordered his super burger on a bun with all the usual trimmings.    I went with a pile of kale sauteed in olive oil with several cloves of garlic, a fat patty and drizzle of Kewpie.     Two happy campers.

Trying to decide what to do with a chunk of ground chuck, I asked husband how he would like a kale Joe's special.  

He said I wasn't amusing.    I thought it sounded great!    But then, he doesn't like the authentic one either.

I mean, this is what I'm talking about.

I mean, I get that kale is overrepresented on restaurant menus.

But IRL, it's just another delicious leafy green that can be part of your balanced winter diet, assuming that you care about such things -- as you really really should.

What, am I NOT gonna buy it, cook it, and eat it cuz foodies have decided it's uncool?

Isn't that a bit harsh? She's not allowed to have personal opinions?

I would have thought that she might agree with me that there are no bad foods, only bad cooks.
