I then need to get all my paper work ready and renew the Equestrian Pass I hold while we are there tomorrow. List... Shot Records, Coggins, Pictures for files etc...
I then hope to enjoy the rest of my evening and go to bed early.
I will be in serious pain Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (if I don't get too lazy riding) but the walk around the house and the grounds tomorrow will help work some of this out.
This is what you will need.
Kale about the size of a grocery bag...
Garlic, two or three pods.
Soy Sauce... nto 1/8 of a cup if orgional.. but if low sodium... 1/4 cup. for taste...
ONE cup of water.
I collected Kale from the garden, yet another thing that you can just throw out seeds in the late summer early fall and let them take over. I tend to thin them out by just cutting lines in my free seeded areas then I thin them out more as they get larger eventually leaving only one plant every 7 inches or so. These plants are just about gone but (having nursed them) they have lasted me the winter. Well... truth is... normally I would be planting MORE THIS MONTH, but it is still too cold for the seeds to germinate so I will have to wait till April... this is a wierd year!
At any rate... I use my small cast iron skillet for this... Nannies! I gather ( or you can purchase) a collection about the size of a standard grocery bag. ( not our reusables... but the Ingles, Krogers, Food Lion non recyclable pieces of crap) Now this sounds like a lot but it cooks down to LESS than my 8 inch skillet!
I wash the kale by soaking it in the sink first. Then I use my fingers on EVERY leaf and soak it again. Then I fill the other side of the sink and soak again. I put mine in the fridge for an hour or more so it will crisp back up. The store purchase ... you can skip this.. it's done or has preservatives!
Put as much of the cut off kale leaves into your skillet (does not matter the size) WITH one cup of water. This will seem impossible but trust me this amount here will cook down to LESS than 1/2 of the skillet size.
Put a lid on it! Cook on NEXT to high untill the lid fits.
