Meet my new bestest friend with benefits. His name is Kale and he loves to mingle with Orange and Banana. And with me. We’ve met every morning for the past few days. Our encounters are brief, yet intense and consuming. And after each breakfast rendez vous he leaves me more satisfied than… Well, let’s just say he’s good at what he does and always leaves me wanting more. Sneaky Mr. Kale.
porn talk for this post. Let me be proud now because I got published in an actual printed magazine. A magazine that I love to browse and read drool on. Chickpea Magazine is quite an inspiring and creative piece of work, with stunning photography. Every time I get my hands on an issue, I end up making notes for myself to try almost all the recipes in it. If only there were more than 24 hours in a day! Next on my list is to try to make my own apple cider vinegar! Not sure who was inspired to include a feature of that in this fall issue, but it is a brilliant idea and only the though of making my own, from scratch, is quite awesome. You can check out a free digital version of the magazine here and you can subscribe here to get their issues (they have digital versions of the print!) no matter where you live on this big planet.
