Making something outside of my comfort zone.

This week I am broke as hell. Pft, who am I kidding? I’m always broke. But it’s my night to cook dinner, and I know Jared is totally over spag bol. So I headed over to the /r/Eatcheapandhealthy to try and find something a bit out of my comfort zone cooking wise but was also cheap.

The ingredients I used were:

  • Kale
  • Celery
