Kale with Pancetta and Mushrooms
Wow! The last two weeks have been crazy busy! The weekend before Halloween, I had gone to Nashville to do a photoshoot and sadly somehow the compact flash would not read. So last weekend I drove back up to retake the photos. The kids had a blast with their friends, but I am not 19 anymore and driving 4 hours up and back this past weekend and the weekend before has wiped me out. I had another photoshoot yesterday. It felt good to be working. I have another couple of shoots in the next couple of weeks. I am excited. I made this salad a week ago and it was so dang delicious. The recipe comes from the Pioneer Woman.
Kale with Mushroom and Pancetta Salad
In a pan fry up the bacon or pancetta, drain and remove from pan and set aside. Then in a separate pan saute the mushrooms in butter. You can add the wine at this point, but I left that out. I also left out the goat cheese just because I didn't have any on hand, but then I added a 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds for crunch. In a bowl add kale and other ingredients. Then in a separate bowl whisk together oil, balsamic vinegar, thyme, salt, pepper. Then pour over the Kale. Enjoy!
