– Reaching back to an old Friday Fuck Up, erisgrrrl confirms that cooking kale chips is easier said than done:
I have tried to make kale chips twice and both times it was fail city! They looks so easy and tasty! I have no idea what I did wrong but it was no good! So, I totally feel your pain!
Why is this so hard? Some tips please? Anyone?
– In another oldie-but-goodie, real live French-Canadian Jean-Guy Bourque approves of our NYC Tour de Poutine:
I am a French-Canadian who left Montreal for a 6 month visit to the USA 42 years ago, and I’m still here in New Jersey…I am very happy to see that you can finally get a taste of Montreal here in the NYC area! Bravo! What I really hope for is for “smoked meat” to also catch on here…You’ll forget about NY style pastrami once you’ve tried Montreal’s smoked meat! Also the Montreal style of BBQ chicken that you get at places like Chalet BBQ, Benny’s or St Hubert BBQ…
Consider us on board the smoked meat bandwagon!
You can also stir it into soups or chilis, even curry, or make a hummus/tapenade/dip. i’ve also seen people take lentils, mush them, wrap around a stick and fry them, though i’ve never tried it myself, and to be honest i’ve only ever seen that once, though i was quite impressed with the idea. they could also be repurposed into a vegi meatball type thing like this: http://www.myvegancookbook.com/recipes/recipe.php?id=20 I was eating them straight from the freezer, they are very good. of course, real meatballs are easier, but you know how we do…
Other ideas? We got lentils to burn.
