Massaged Kale Salad with Apples and Gorgonzola

(The buck stops here)
The perfect local, organic, nutirent-rich Thanksgiving side dish.  By massaging salt into kale, the bitterness disappears and the leaves become tender. Dress it with olive oil and apple cider vinegar after adding fresh apples, currants, nuts and crumbled cheese. A HUGE favorite among both my students and friends.

While I'd much rather recap the evening over a city-wide brunch with all of you, I thought it might be easier to put together a snap shot of the evening's convo via iPhone Storify, my new storytelling obsession.

From Dance to Literature, Art for Art's Sake

Never underestimate the miracle of art

Lately I have been obsessed with two things:  the vagaries of the Seattle School District’s math curriculum and cat pee.

These perturbations have kept me awake at night and have consumed many of my daylight hours.

So it was a relief a few weeks ago to be reminded that art has the power to transcend almost anything and what it can’t transcend, it can soothe. Read more »
