    BTW, how did you do with the activists blocking 395 yesterday and the 14th street bridge today? (I imagine they haven't blocked 50 or Little River Turnpike, yet.)
    I heard there was some activity, but my commute does not go in that direction.

    BTW, kale is great in lasagna; I avoid pasta carbs these days, so I layer eggplant slices with kale, meat sauce, and ricotta. Without the kale, it's too wet, so it acts as an "absorbent" and is like spinach once it's cooked down.

    I've never eaten kale, fresh or cooked. What does it taste like.

    I do not like cooked spinach, yet I like a spinach salad.
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    I called my friend in DC. Apparently, the protestors waited until after rush hour to block the 14th street bridge. Didn't want to block the Congressional aids trying to get to work, I guess.

    It's a chocolate cake, with chocolate fudge frosting, and a layer of white creamy frosting in between (that's what the "bumps" are).
    That sounds great!

    Sounds good. I remember when Kale was simply an inedible garnish for salad bars, party trays. Some salad bars were even using synthetic rubber like kale to make the salad bar look pretty!

    It's sort of a bitter taste. It's not bad to break it up in small pieces and put some in a tossed salad. It's actually good if you break it into pieces and put it on a baking sheet. I usually spray olive oil on the pan, then toss in the kale, spray with a bit more oiive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder and sometimes parmesan cheese. I bake it in a 400 degree oven for about 5-10 minutes. It actually tastes very crispy and good, but don't make too much at a time. It tends to get soggy quickly. They're sort of a healthy version of potato chips. Even SR will eat it. Haven't made it for a while. He likes real potato chips better.

    I did grow some arugula this year, it's good in small amounts to season a salad, it is also freeze proof and is still growing

    But kale and its cousins in the cabbage family can interact with thyroid function if they are eaten in very high amounts.
