So Fresh and So Green Green!

Spring is here. 70 plus degrees in early March and there is no turning back. I must say, I have a real love for Minnesotans, Saturday when the temps sky-rocketed, so did the streets and the lakes with just about everyone and their mom emerging out of hibernation to salute mother spring! As a tribute to the earths transformation into green, I have highlighted a few of my favorite green snacks and sides... dig in!

Kale chips!! Potato chips LOOK OUT, we've got your healthier, tastier replacement. A friend of mine introduced me to this easy recipe. All you have to do is cut up some kale, toss with olive oil and salt, arrange on a baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes at 300 degrees, turning twice. Set out for guilt free snacking!

Sometimes the simplist things are the best, like this roasted asparagus brushed with olive oil, salt and pepper. All you have to do is bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees. Delish!
HIDDEN SECRET ALERT: $6 mussels and fries available at Sea Change 3-6pm and 8-10pm!! Sitting in a bed of butter, white wine, shallot and a crostini topped with a creamy basil pesto will have you dying for more. The mussels taste fresh and juicy, well worth the $6 happy hour price tag. I highly recommend you try this great deal ASAP :)
