As a responsible guinea pig mom, I find myself spending a lot more time in the produce section of the grocery store and a lot less time in the Lean Cuisine/Smart Ones aisle. While there, I pick up a few things for myself that catch my eye. It's been a long time since my fridge has had this much produce in it! At the moment, I have kale, spinach, parsley, red peppers, grapes, strawberries, oranges, and bananas in my kitchen. I know that doesn't sound like much for a lot of you, but I live alone and rarely have time to actually cook during the week. Plus, despite their name, guinea pigs can be picky eaters. Molly doesn't seem to like red peppers, but I have two big ones sitting in my fridge (minus the few slivers I tried to feed her). I can't let them go to waste, can I? So I need to get creative with these leftover veggies and I need your help, dear friends. Any good recipes out there for things like kale or mustard greens? I've made kale chips once but I'd like to try something new. Got any ideas?
