This particular evening's version of pesto kale was soooooo good, and was a glorious tribute to the mission statement behind the real food challenge.
Grown in my garden: Serranos (frozen from late summer), garlic, pesto (frozen from last fall, made with local pecans), onions, home canned tomatoes, and of course: the kale!
Sourced locally: Buddy's all natural chicken sausage. Minimal ingredients. Locally made. Natural and delicious.
Non local ingredients: Olive oil, the cheese in the pesto, salt and pepper.
Feels pretty great to grow it, make it, eat it, and enjoy a nutrient packed, uber fresh and easily put together meal. Fist pumps all around.
