A stranger is working into my lunches and dinners — rough around the edges, lacking any redeeming sense of taste and abruptly showing up when least expected. I’m done with him.

I am hereby declaring myself not aboard the kale train.

The taste of kale isn't that bad. I do however prefer meals without cilantro. Mom would grow her own so the flavor was extra pungent unlike that given in restaurants and sold in stores. Mom later confessed that at first she didn't like cilantro either. It became an "acquired taste" for her. As for me, I will take kale over cilantro any day.

There's not a single kale plant at Seeding Galveston's urban farm (33rd and N) but how about arugula or malabar spinach and/or sweet potato greens. Ya gotta have some green!
