Try Something New Tuesday!

This morning I was preparing to try a new cooking experiement and said to myself "it's Tuesday, I'll try something new!". Cheesey? Probably. But, I think it has a nice little ring to it. Tuesday is generally a pretty open day for us, so I'm going to make a go of "Try Something New Tuesday" and see where it goes. We might try a new food, a new activity, or go someplace new. Check back every Tuesday to see what new thing is we are embarking on.

Today I tried Kale Chips. This isn't really a recipe but more of a different way of cooking some Kale. I had heard of Kale Chips from my friend Emilie and then saw them on the beautiful food blog Smitten Kitchen and knew I had to try them.

Kale Chips are super easy to make. Just trim the kale leaves, removing the think stems, toss in some olive oil, arrange on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with Kosher salt, and bake at 300 for 20 minutes.

Before baking.

They are seriously delicious. Erik liked them too, and Cooper liked a couple and spit out a couple. Such are the eating habits of a 4 year old.

Overall, this new thing is destined to become a regular!

I love try something new Tuesday! I will have to follow along. Hopefully I can get my three year on board to try new foods. All of a sudden he is becoming picky to our dismay. Thanks for sharing the Kale chips recipe. I have always wanted to make them just never got around to it.

Glad to hear some good feedback about Try Something New Tuesdays. Thanks!

Cooper also started to get pickier when he was around 3, maybe starting a little before he turned 3. He ate just about anything when younger. Now if something is presented as a "taste test" he'll participate. Lots of power battles though.
