Kale Chips and Ed Carine is Our Hero

Hi everyone. Today I wanted to tell you all about my friend Ed Carine. Ed is our sound man for Parents Who Rock (http://www.parentswhorock.com) and he is a great example of how providing support can allow people to be their best. You see, Ed has been lugging sound equipment and doing the sound for Parents Who Rock for over four years now. Sound equipment rental and sound technicians are extremely expensive. If not for Ed, we would not be able to afford to have such talented local musicians offer their time and talents so generously so that we are able to put on shows and raise thousands and thousands of dollars for our area’s charity organizations.

Ed, this post is a tribute to you. You helped Parents Who Rock raise over $2,000.00 to help the children of YCS group homes (http://www.ycs.org/)receive birthday gift cards and for that we are grateful. All the musicians and the audience who supported us allowed us to rock our town to do good works. Thank you everyone!
P.S. I support Ed by making him lunch when he works his equipment. He even emailed me today for the recipes. That made me feel reaaaaaaaaaal good.

Who is your support? Do you have people behind the scenes providing help or encouragement so that you can be the best that you can be? If not, how can you make that happen?

How about you get some support to help you prepare these delicious kle chips? You’ll be glad you did.

Kale Chips:

A few large Kale leaves
1/2-1 TBS Extra Virgen Olive Oil
a few pinches Kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take the leaves of kale, wash them and remove the middle, thick stem.
Tear the leaves up until you have about 5 cups.
Throw the leaves in a bowl and coat with about 1/2-1 TBS of Extra Virgen olive oil, stirring until all the leaves are a bit shiny.
Sprinkle with the salt

On a wire rack on top of a cookie sheet, lay the leaves in a single layer. You may need to make a couple batches. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until crispy.

Suggested Kitchen Bonding Opportunity: Have kids help you rip up kale leaves, pull the stems off, pour the oil onto the leaves in a bowl (make sure they wash their hands first!)

  1. So funny to see kale chips mentioned here — they seem to be the hot snack of the moment! Last time I made them, my kids ate kale chips rather than macaroni and cheese at dinnertime. Go figure.
