Sauteed Kale and Spinach


Ingredients:
2 handfuls of fresh Kale
2 handfuls of fresh baby spinach
1 small onion, chopped
1-2 tsp. of minced garlic cloves
1 Tbsp. of real butter (or EVCO: extra virgin coconut oil)
1 Tbsp. of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp. ACV (apple cider vinegar)
Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
Wash greens if they are not already pre-washed.  In a big skillet heat butter and olive oil on medium heat. Saute chopped onion for 5 minutes then add in minced garlic. Saute for another 1-2 minutes.  Add in Kale. Cook down until almost completely withered. Add in Spinach and cook until it has withered. Add in red pepper, salt, pepper and ACV. Cook another couple of minutes or until all greens are cooked to your liking.  If it's too bitter for your taste you can add in 1 tsp. of sugar, but we like it as is. It's now ready to serve.

*I've done this with spinach or kale and collard greens mixed and it came out great too. Cooked crumbled bacon is good added in this too.

Watermelon Pink Lemonade

Last year I shared a yummy beverage to use up any leftover watermelon during the summer holidays. This year I swapped out the ingredients to come up with a new blend for us to try.


Watermelon Pink Lemonade

Ingredients:
6 cups seedless watermelon (cubed)
4 cups (1 quart prepared) Country Time Pink Lemonade
1/2 cup white sugar
2-3 cups cold water plus 1 cup of ice cubes

Directions:
Start out by making 1 quart of Country Time Pink Lemonade. Set aside. Next in a blender blend the watermelon, 1 cup of water, and sugar until pureed. Pour this mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a big pitcher. After all the liquid falls through you can discard the pulp or do like I did and put into a container to use up in a homemade sorbet, slushy, or fruit smoothie. It's best to put into ice cube trays to freeze then pop out and keep in a Ziploc bag until ready to use. Now it's time to add the cold water and the ice cube then stir. This is really good for drinking in the summer time and holidays like Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day.

Note: You can really play around with this. It's a very versatile recipe :-)
