What the Kale???

If you are expecting me to say I've just been to busy to blog, you'd be wrong.  I've been way too lazy to blog.  I had literally 2 months off for foot surgery and didn't blog one single word.  Go ahead and judge me.

But as always, when I find a good recipe to share I go straight here.  Giving credit where credit is due, I found this on Pinterest and followed it here.

Since Kale is the latest hipster vegetable, and will be available by the truckload at midwestern farmers' markets, you need something delicious to make from it.  This is a big hit at my place.  For this and other Pinterest recipes I've tried go here.

KALE AND ARTICHOKE DIP
ounces cream cheese, softened.  Lowfat would be just fine.

15oz can of artichokes, drained
ounces greek plain yogurt or light sour cream
1/2 
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 
cup shredded Mozzarella or Swiss cheese, and a bit more for topping at the end.
teaspoon garlic salt
ounces kale, chopped (about 8-10 cups)

Mix it all together with a mixer - or by hand if you're stronger than me.  Then put it all in a pie dish or something similar.  The kale will cook down,
Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.  Add more cheese on top during the last 5 minutes.
Serve with crackers, tortilla chips, raw veggies, compact discs, pencils, up to you.

I like kale, but many of the recipes I'm seeing now talk about the necessity of "massaging" the kale before putting it into a salad. I thinking of giving it up, since I don't have time for a vegetable that needs foreplay.
