kale pasta

My most recent column on Ferndale Patch went up a few weeks ago, and I forgot to post about it here! That is a travesty, because it includes the recipe for one of our favorite dinners, baked kale pasta with chickpeas and feta. This one has evolved over the past year or so. It started out with broccoli and breadcrumbs, but eventually we decided that the kale was better than broccoli, feta was a delicious addition, and the breadcrumbs could be left out. The recipe on Patch is the “perfected” version. I also originally made it with a big tablespoon of this allspice blend I brought back from Jamaica, but since that is long gone, I now make do with a mix of Penzey’s southwestern seasoning, smokey salt, and whatever other random spices look good to me.

la croix coconut

I found myself wandering the aisles at Target at 8am Sunday morning (really, what else should a restless, 40-week-pregnant person be doing at that time of day?) and came across a new discovery–La Croix coconut flavor! The coconut flavor is natural and subtle and just sweet enough.  Further investigation has revealed that it is only being sold at Target right now.  I had my first can last night and I am slightly obsessed…I feel like I could be pregnant for another 9 months now that I have found my new favorite drink!  Just kidding!!  I am sure it’s just as good as a mixer in a cocktail.  I’ll find out soon enough.
