Snack Time: Kale Chips

It was another rainy day here, and two of my three little birds were home with me. So we hung out doing the things we love to do on rainy days: making arts and crafts, reading, and cooking together.

My kids LOVE to help me in the kitchen. We turn on some tunes, break out our ingredients, and get messy. In our family, I think it’s the fun times we spend making food together that fosters a willingness in my children to try different foods. Today’s a good example of that.

You may have noticed from some of my other posts– I’m all about meals-made-easy and it doesn’t get easier than this quick, yummy snack:  kale chips.

I know from previous attempts at making kale chips that my 5yo LOVES them; but my 6yo would not, could not eat them with a goat. So, it was a good thing my older boy was at school and couldn’t influence his younger sister. This was, I believe, her first try.

These were so delicious!  I put some pre-washed, pre-cut Kale into a bow, had the kids put 3 Tbsp olive oil and sprinkle some salt on it, and then they helped me spread it onto a baking sheet. (told you I like to keep it simple!)

350 degrees for 15 minutes and we’re snacking.

Happy eatings!
