Ooooh, I am going to have to try this SOON. Did you have a hard time finding kale?

Nope- kale was right at my grocery store. No problems at all.

Ahh! I am so excited you posted this. I have been craving it this pregnancy and Olive Garden is just a little far away - the one right by my house is opening in about 2 weeks but still, I would love to make this instead of running over there everytime the baby wants it. Thanks lady!
