Kale Crisps were not for My Wife

I was in a cooking mood tonight. Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, Rice, Kale Crisps, Italian Meatballs. These were all separate meals for different days. After researching Kale Crisps I decided on this method of preparation.

I oiled my fingers with Canola Oil and rubbed the bite size pieces of Kale before lining them on a cookie sheet. I then sprinkled very lightly with Sea salt and Old Bay seasoning. This was placed in a 350F oven for 15 min. When I pulled them out I found the Kale pieces took on a paper thin, fragile feel to the touch. My Wife using all her bravery tried a tiny bite. The look on her face was tell tale. I know she will never try Kale again, unless I hide it in something.

Sausage Chicken Gumbo over Brown Rice was our meal for tonight. Diced Chicken tenders, Italian sausage and Pork were sauteed.Fresh Tomato, Okra and carrots were added. Black pepper and meat first Chicken base with fridge vegetable juice were added for seasoning. Brown rice was boiled separately in corn water. And thick slices of Rye Bread from a round loaf was offered for dipping.

The Italian Meat balls made with ground Italian sausage and Pork will be served in a few days. I will have to create a bland sauce because the meatballs were over salted. And eight of the forty Meatballs had the crumbled Kale Crisps added in. Almost forgot to mention I sprinkled Honey over the Crisps to make them tastier. Let us see if hiding the Kale in the Meatballs gets a thumbs up.

Balsamic Chicken instead of picking up Son at airport

Fred is back in the kitchen. I was supposed to go to to the Houston airport tonight to pick up our Son flying in from Alabama. Severe weather that left Houston heading East towards Alabama has cancelled all flights. Our Son was coming to surprise a former high school friend for his birthday tomorrow. That meant we had him to ourselves until he was ready to announce his surprise arrival tomorrow.

Instead of a restaurant visit after we picked up our Son, I have returned to the kitchen tonight to make Balsamic Chicken. My Gout has subsided enough to allow me to move around easily without excessive pain. Most gout attacks only last for a few days. I will forget I have this condition before I have the next one. There are several precautions I take to alleviate the possibility of attacks. Sleep patterns, Diet, Relaxation Exercise, ETC.

To create Balsamic Chicken I have covered Chicken Tenders with Balsamic vinegar, Roasted Purple onion centers, Parmesan Cheese, and over My Wife's Chicken; Bacon Strips. This has all been placed in a 350 F oven for one hour. We will also have Fresh green beans sauteed with Fresh baby carrots; seasoned with Fresh Oregano. For desert we will hold onto each other and share why we missed having our Son to ourselves. When he arrives tomorrow he will go straight to his friends party and we may see him briefly on Monday before we return him to the airport.
