Kale and Potato Curry

This is the first weekend that feels completely like Spring is here. I’m not sure if it is just the great weather or the thought of a weeklong staycation full of birthdays, family visits and relaxation.

We started our weekend with a long walk to the farmer’s market.

The only “snow” in sight is from flower petals blowing off the trees in the warm breeze.


Fresh greens, radishes, potatoes and beautiful flowers were abundant.


I picked up some pesticide free kale and new potatoes to make a lunchtime curry. I love this combination because both kale and potatoes taste great when skillet roasted.
