I cannot stop laughing.

Three friends from high school and I have been playing a new game on facebook. No, not one of those games – I’m not going to start asking people to tend my farm or fight my dragon. It all began with this photo – (which I just discovered is an actual book!!) and some funny comments listing some hilariously random articles that “Liz Has In Her Handbag”.

Since then, we have been posting photos of people with handbags, sometimes just the handbag, onto our walls, tagging each other, asking “What’s In The Handbag?” The more random the answer the better (we are incredibly witty at times), and I have been laughing so hard I cry.

…which I completely need and I welcome that laughter and silliness.

Totally unrelated in every way except for being the Things I Cannot Stop category, I cannot stop massaging kale. I cannot stop chiffonading kale. After enjoying grapefruit kale chiffonade for about 12 days in a row, I started changing up the flavors, or massage oils, if you will.

This is my newest favorite. I I made a two ingredient version of my avocado sauce to massage into this simple salad with complex flavor.

2 avocados, peeled, pitted, divided
juice of 2 lemons
2 large bunches kale, stems and ribs removed

Slice avocados in half lengthwise, set one half of one avocado aside. Remove the remaining three avocado halves from their peels, place in blender. Juice two lemons into blender, process until creamy smooth.

Remove stems/ribs from each kale leaf, roll tightly and chiffonade. Place in large bowl and pour lemon avocado sauce over top, use hands to massage, coating thoroughly. Serve with reserved avocado (sliced) and tomato. Add sea salt to taste.
