Bountiful Baskets Day #2

After posting my bafflement about what to do with the kale, a lot of people contacted me with some fun ideas! I decided to sacrifice a small part of my centerpiece to try out kale chips. The recipe said to bake the chips at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes, but when I pulled my tray out at 10 minutes the kale was burned! I tried a bite anyway... that was a mistake. Perhaps I'll try again later. To go with our barbecue chicken sandwiches at dinnertime, I made a green salad with part of my head of lettuce and topped Ryan's with half of one of the tomatoes. My friend Jessica showed me how to determine if my pineapple is ripe, using a trick she learned on her mission to Brazil. It's not quite ripe yet, but when it is... yum.
