A #Vegetarian Happy Dance of #Food

Yesterday on Fatal Foodies, I posted my recipe for vegetarian enchiladas. I had rice and beans and sauce left over. So this is what I did:

LeftoverburritoThat’s it down there at 7:00, topped with chee-ee-ee-eeze! Then there’s a grilled little eggplant, to which I am extremely partial, and kale chips, to which Charlie is even more partial.

Kale Chips

Pull kale greens off the stems. Toss the greens with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Arrange in a baking pan in a single layer and bake at 350F for about 20-30 minutes. I cook them in the toaster oven, so if you use a regular oven, YMMV.

You can drain them on paper towels, or eat them grease and all. They are unbelievably delicious! They melt in your mouth! Kids actually do love ’em!

The eggplant I just rub with olive oil and sprinkle with Jane’s Crazy Mixed-Up Salt and put in the indoor grill until they blacken on the outside. OMG! Heaven!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character has to feed a child.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      It WAS good, Dan! Charlie asked me the other night, “Do you ever miss meat?” I said, “I can eat meat any time I want to. I usually order a meat dish when I’m out somewhere. But I don’t miss it at home, because veg is so good and so interesting to cook with.” And, as Lily Tomlin’s Edith Ann used to say, that’s the truth.

    I can sort of taste and feel all that glorious foodstuff.
    I can definitely almost smell the goodness.
