Today I made a trip to what google indicates is the only organic co-op in Sioux Falls: East Dakotah Natural Foods Co-Op
I'm not an 100% organic shopper, but I like the atmosphere of co-ops, and there are almost always things that you can only get at these types of specialty stores--spelt in bulk, tea tree oil, liberals... This time of year, as it turns out, that's kale.
If you read food blogs, you know what they are, and you know they're awesome. If not, follow that link.
This evening, I made one of my new favorite home alone meals: Tomato and Egg Bake with Kale Chips and Crusty Bread. Still working on shortening that name. I like this meal, because its perfect for one person. I suppose it could be perfect for two people too, or however many oven-safe bowls you have in your house. Start with:
Ok, it looks less awesome than it tastes. I usually toast some crusty bread with it to dip into the egg/tomato mixture, but all I had on hand was Irish Soda Bread I had made earlier this week. I had my doubts, but it actually tasted pretty awesome.
The combination of kale chips, comfy tomato/egg goodness and toasty bread was a great winter meal. Couple that with a Better World Wheat Beer, and I'm ready for bed.
