Lazy Daisy Day

The clapotis that I have been knitting behind the scenes is finished, and it's already been stolen and retrieved several times. I keep saying that I have no issue with lending it out for small periods of time, but it's MINE. For keeps. I used about 6 or 7 balls of vintage Eatons acrylic, and it's super drapey, machine-washable, the most soothing shade of pale blue, and cool to wear. Perfect for the summer! If you've been putting off learning how to knit, let this be a good reason to start.

And on a completely different topic, I baked kale chips this morning before I even had my bowl of bran flakes, and I think I have found my new love. I was gifted this kale yesterday by my dearest friend who had no idea what to do with so much kale. I remembered reading a blog post about the glory of baked kale chips, and I was excited about trying it out myself. I couldn't find where I had seen it, but I did find a basic recipe, and I embellished it a bit with a sprinkle of lemon juice, and all the while, I was very sceptical about these being edible. Well, I do declare these tasty! And I got several thumbs up from pyjama-clad little people passing by in the kitchen. I can't wait to bake kale chips for everyone all around. If you come over to my house today, I may still be in my pyjamas, but you may join me in a circle around my giant bowl of kale chips. I'm thinking of tall glasses of icy lemonade to complement them. Mmmmm.

I can totally vouch for the kale chips! They were crisp with just that touch of salty goodness! A must try for those with a surplus in the garden.

Mmmmm!
