Brian likes to look at real estate wherever we’re camping. On Sunday he discovered this “gem.” A 416 square foot house on 2.5 acres that comes with 2 Airstreams and a Streamliner for $165k.
Of course we had to go see it.
There was music coming from the house, so Brian went up and knocked on the door, but no one answered. We poked around a little bit, but not too much since it seemed like someone was home.
The only thing of real interest here are the trailers, and we really don’t need another.
Dinner Last Night:
Roasted Kale and Beets with Honey-Horseradish Vinaigrette. This recipe steered me to my first really successful attempt at roasted kale also known as kale chips.
I’ve tried making kale chips a few times in the past and half the batch would come out crispy while some of it would be soggy. The trick, I learned from this recipe is to make sure the kale is really dry after you wash it.
I used purple curly kale and let it roast about 10 minutes longer than the recipe said. I also used 12 leaves like the recipe said, which made for a big pile of leaves. My instinct would have been to make sure nothing overlapped on the pan, but it was fine. After the initial 15 minutes I gave the pan a shake to toss them around a bit, then did 5 more minutes, tossed them some more, then 5 more minutes. They were awesome.
