The holidays, to me, mean a lot of things. Good food, better wine, parties, friends, fireplaces, hugs.
And, I’m going to be in the car a lot; if you are a person with divorced, remarried parents and you marry a person with divorced, remarried parents, the holidays are something akin to what I imagine to be compounding interest…
But, the best part is all the time I get to spend at home, all my homes, and with all my loved ones!
Work from home! Dogs in your lap!
And the other wonderful thing about being at home during the holidays is hot lunch!
Today, I made kale nachos, something I made up in the glow of the doomed Christmas tree and with the new year threatening.
2 bunches of kale leaves, torn from the stem
1 cup raw peanuts, chopped
4 Brussels’ sprouts, shredded
big handful of broccoli, chopped
juice of 1 lemon
smattering of sesame seeds
dousing of teriyaki sauce
Chop all the vegetables and douse with lemon juice on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are crisped.
Use the teriyaki sauce as the dressing.
Happy Nacho Day. 🙂
