Last night was a 2 -2 tie for the Republicans. On the D side, The Bern took 2 of 3 so it looks like Hilz wins based on delegate count.
And since all’s right in the world I’m moving.on.dot.org to recipes today. So post away: new favorites, old favorites, ethnic recipes and recipes you’ve been been meaning to try. Why? Because I said so.
I think I told you I went to Chick-fil-A on my way home from the airport last week. I haven’t been there since they obtained a cease and desist order against their coleslaw and sent their “superfood” kale salad in as a replacement. Since I liked their coleslaw - even though it was a tad sweet to my taste - I wanted to report back on how awful the new super-salad was. Unfortunately it was quite good. Way to go: spoil a perfectly good fowl mood, Chick-fil-A!
Okay, that’s the Hollywood version; your serving will look more like this:
So don’t order it if you really, really don’t like twigs and stems; or greens. Still, it’s hard not to like it unless you’re just holding a grudge against management for chopping the coleslaw.
At least now we understand why Chick-fil-A took the little guy to court over what they claimed was copyright infringement:
Unfortunately for Chick-fil-A the judge decided chicken isn’t kale, so if they want to add the “eat more kale” tagline to their portfolio they’ll have to pay the t-shirt guy for the privilege.
I don’t want to get sued so this isn’t so much a recipe as it is a list of components: some assembly is required.
- Chopped kale, stems removed
- Chopped raw broccolini
- Maple vinaigrette dressing
- Dried sour cherries
- Sugared nuts, mixture of walnuts, almonds and pecans (served, sealed in a bag, on the side to avoid allergy issues)
I’m sure copycat recipes will follow shortly.
Since it’s an election year, and I don’t want to be accused of being biased, here’s a “Brutally Honest Product Review” from an opposing viewpoint (which is pretty funny). I believe the post is simply a case of sour grapes from a sweet coleslaw junkie who sees her drug of choice being cut off:
“So basically, losing the slaw in favor of f***ing kale means that ISIS is pretty much in charge of the Chick-fil-a drive-thru now.”
If you live near a Chick-fil-A I encourage you to try it yourself. If, like many Republicans, you are Anti-Green just on principle, the chicken sandwiches and breakfast biscuits are still darn good all on their own. So vote your conscience.
