Payday-the epitome of non-chocolate candy bars (plus 1 point for using a SAT vocabulary word in a sentence please, thank you). It is actually the only non-chocolate candy bar I can think of.
Therefore, it deserves its very on clean-copy cat version.
Eat your leaves.
The secret to enjoying your leaves (especially if you don’t like them in the first place) is to put stuff on top of it that you like, so in the end you can barely see the greens at the bottom. It’s the same theory that applies to when you spill a drink at a party, cover it up with an unfolded napkin, and awkwardly walk away: if you can’t see it, then it’s not there.
My friends call me a bunny because I can actually just rip off a leaf from a head of lettuce and eat it without anything else.
It’s probably cause don’t really like salad dressing. Or at least, I’m really picky with it. When I go to restaurants, the conversation goes something like this:
I’m proud to announce that I have honorably earned the nickname of Kale Kid. I was into kale before Beyonce put it on a sweatshirt.
Everything green is trendy these days. The color olive green, green juice, going green, cash, and the star of the $5 health food shelf in Shop Rite-kale chips. 2 and 1/8 oz of kale for $4. It may be healthier but the ratio of chips to air may still be 3:1. Well, at least they can market it as “organic” air.
These chips are crispy and so delicate that they almost almost melt in your mouth. And before you know it, you will have eaten 2 cups of vegetables in less than 5 minutes without even thinking about it.
Comfort food. You can’t really say no. It’s what I imagine as your parents or grandparents making for you and then pinching your cheek as a congratulations for cleaning your plate even when you’re 30 years old.
This will be one of the first of many installations in my “comfort food redone” series. It’s good food but even better. Now let’s get on with it.
