Afterschool Snack

When I got to Quail Hill this morning I saw a big bushel of kale leaves and thought to myself, "Today is the day I'll make those kale chips everyone is talking about. They'll be a healthy afterschool snack for the children." So I took my share, 12 large leaves, washed them, tore them into pieces, tossed them with a tablespoon of olive oil and some salt, spread them on a baking sheet, and baked them until they were crisp. After they cooled, I ate one, and then another, and before I knew it, most of the kale chips were gone. The kids would have hated them anyway. Good thing I had picked plenty of shelling peas as a back-up snack...
