Patriotic Fruit Flag

Patriotic Fruit Flag

For your next Memorial Day BBQ menu, or if you're looking for a July 4th dessert, check out this Patriotic Fruit Flag recipe from www.drugstoredivas.net.I love dessert. If I’m invited to your house for dinner, I will definitely be bringing a dessert with me. Part of that is because I always want something sweet after dinner, and part of that is because dessert extends the evening. And if we’re hanging out, I don’t want it to end.

In the summer, though, I don’t want a real heavy dessert. I want something that will satisfy that sweet craving, but I also want something that is light and fresh. That’s why fruit is the perfect summer dessert idea.

But let’s be honest. Bringing a bowl of fruit somewhere is a little boring. So, why not jazz it up and bring a patriotic fruit flag. It’s the perfect July 4th dessert too.

Simple Sauteed Kale

Simple Sauteed Kale

Add some kale into your meals with this Sauteed Kale recipe from www.drugstoredivas.net.

I love kale. Okay, that’s an understatement. I’m obsessed with kale. I’m growing it in our garden right now and, until I can harvest it, I purchase it every week at the grocery store. One bunch is enough for two meals, so we have it twice a week. But if I could, I would make it for every meal. I make a spicy kale recipe (which Pete loves) and a simple sauteed kale recipe that’s great if you’re in the mood for something mellow.

Simple Sauteed Kale

What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 bunch kale
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder

What You’ll  Do:

Wash the kale.

Cut the rib out of the kale, then cut the kale leaves into strips.

In a pan, heat up olive oil. Put the kale in with a pinch of salt and a dash of garlic powder. Cook it down about eight minutes and add another pinch of salt. Cook it down another seven minutes. You want it cook down, but not all the way down to a spinach consistency. Leave some bite to it.

Serve warm.

We serve this with chicken or pasta. Last week, I served it with a spinach and ricotta ravioli. It would actually be perfect with our kale pesto ravioli too.
