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.
Have you ever invented something only to find out that that thing has already been created? That happens to me everytime I think I come up with a revolutionary idea, for example: dates for caramel? the internet did that. spinach in pesto instead of basil? pssh, old news. Pre-sliced bread? already a thing.
But this is actually the first recipe I created ever (after an over steamed cauliflower incident)- and I have yet to see anything like it. This replaces the kraft mac and cheese and dinosaur shaped chicken nugget dinners of my childhood.
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:
This post is for you broccoli boilers out there. (By all means you are getting your veggies in and I’m proud of you.) Or at the very least, those who are looking for a new yummy way to eat their vegetables.
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.
