So organic you can still taste the dirt

Why eat fresh greens when you can cover them in oil and make them better!
The bok choy was an experiment... It kind of tasted like dirt, but that's my own fault for not washing it enough. Roasting it did get relieve some of the bitterness, but not all of it.

PS- I recently had fried kale at a restaurant. It was the best thing EVER.

Bok Choy and Kale Chips
1 bunch kale
several bunches baby bok choy
3 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
cumin, paprika to taste (or anything else you want).

- preheat oven to 375. Wash the greens, chop into bite size pieces (removing the kale stem).
- Mix greens with oil and whatever spices your little heart desires
- Bake for about 30 mins, until the greens are crunchy.

Note- eat it all. Right now. This doesn't store very well.

As some of you know, I finally figured out how to use Spotify. My music listening style has been forever changed. I can sample everything and no longer commit to buying (a huge plus for a major commitment-phob, and a intern/starving theater artist (10 bucks could feed me for 3 days)).

I recently listened to Of Monsters and Men's first album, "My Head is an Animal" because Spotify told me it was new (It was released on April 3rd).
They're from Iceland, which has a great musician track record (read Bjork).
I'm gaining trust in Spotify's recommendations. I really dig this. It's easy listening, (sometimes a little too) twee indie pop. It's pretty charming and hard not to fall in love.
I'm a sucker for joy filled call and responses and sing alongs. It's a good album to welcome the spring.

If Bjork is the Icelandic standard, you can see some the references in the music video.
