Years ago when I moved from Pennsylvania to Florida, Homosassa was a sleepy fishing village with just one traffic light. Today, unfortunately, it is a bustling fishing village with three traffic lights and a new WalMart.
Being a retired trucker, I've seen the continental United States coast to coast and north to south hundreds of times and don't care to venture out of Florida again. Driving was a great adventure and a great job.
We don't get too excited about things around here. Tourists enjoy the river and the manatees. Snowbirds come down to share their northern wisdom and spend their money. I sit on the front porch and watch the world go by.......and write.
Well, here it goes folks. WP is forcing an old dog to learn new tricks. Trust me, Gabby doesn’t adapt well, he growls when unhappy and bites when angry.
I tried to link to YouTube videos explaining how easy this new feature is, but, in the process lost my religion and scared the cats. So, today there will not be links to YouTube. And if the paragraph alignment makes no sense……don’t blame me.
So, I am going to curl up in bed and take a nap. Grrrrrrrrr!!!
Kale is a member of the cabbage family Brassica oleracea. Of all the super healthy greens, kale is acclaimed as king. Some of the beneficial compounds in kale have powerful medicinal properties.
A single cup of raw kale ( 2.4 ounces) contains:
206% of DV of vitamin A (daily required value)
684% of DV of vitamin K
134% of vitamin C
9% of vitamin B-6
26% of manganese
9% of calcium
10% of copper
9% of potassium
6% of magnesium
This 2.4 ounces also contains 3% or more of DV for thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, iron, and phosphorous. This nutrient dense green contains very little fat, but that fat is mostly the healthy omega-3. And it pumps another 3 grams of protein into your diet.
I love my kale cooked until tender in bacon grease and served over boiled potatoes. However, as a salad vegetable, cut the leaves from the center rib, discard the rib which is very fibrous, chop the leaves into bite-sized pieces, rinse under cold water and sprinkle with a generous amount of salt massaging the salt into the kale. It is tenderized and ready to use in your salad much like lettuce, spinach or curly endive.
