Garlic Kale Chips {RC Helicopter GIVEAWAY}

As fall is closing in and the threat of the flu looms around the corner, it's time to start laying on the garlic. Heavy.  Any of you who know me well, know that I will avoid the flu like the plague.  I may very well see someone who has had the flu, scream with hands waiving and run in the opposite direction.  Okay, so that may be a bit of an exaggeration  but I dislike the flu, very much.  Lets just say if there was a Facebook flu page, I would not 'like' it...okay that was a bit corny.  I digress. Moving on.  All that to say that I am a terrible wimp when I get the flu, and when it hits our house, all five of us end up with it, and it's not pretty.  So this year, i'm laying on the garlic in any way possible (sorry to all my close friends).  Yesterday, Levi and I tried some garlic kale chips.  So here's how it goes:

Garlic Kale Chips
Peel a bunch of garlic- the number depending on how paranoid you are of getting the flu, and how much you like garlic!

Throw some olive oil in a large bowl and crush in all your garlic.

Have the cutest little boy in the world wisk the olive oil and crushed garlic together (yes, you can borrow him, so long as you don't have the flu).

Wash and thoroughly dry your kale leaves.

Tear the kale leaves off of the stem and throw them in your garlic/olive oil mixture.  Avoid putting in the stem, it's a little too chewy. Unless of course you would like to gnaw on your chips rather then crunch them.

Get friendly with your kale and get your hands in there and give it a massage with the oil.

Spread it out evenly on lined cookie sheets.

I sprinkled it with some extra garlic powder.

Bake in oven at 300 for about 15 mins.  Keep a close eye on it, so that it doesn't burn.

And, Voila! Kale chips.  Tasty snack to enjoy during a movie instead of potato chips.  Though I do also enjoy a good potato chip, I prefer not getting the flu much more!


And on a completely separate note, some folks over at are offering my readers a free RC helicopter.  This is sure to promise a fun afternoon with or without kids! Check out the various styles that they offer below.
