It might look like pond scum, but..., Guest HolliDe

Yesterday I harvested the first of the Tuscan Kale from our garden. This recipe was the first of 3 things that I am going to use from our bounty. If I told you what my husband said when I gave it to him for breakfast, About.com would probably delete it, but after tasting it, he really liked it and finished the whole glass as did I! I would like to try it again adding some things like ginger and/or strawberries, but this recipe was delicious as is.
