Wait for Mongo to steal kale from counter and debone it. (He loves kale bones, but hates the leaves. It’s a symbiotic relationship.)
Scoop shredded leaves up off floor. (Sweep floor first if less crunchy kale is desired.)
Juice the lemons. Add a bit of salt and pepper.
Add twice as much oil as lemon juice.
Add two tblsp honey.
Add 1/2 cup of Kraft Parmesan
Take two aspirins for martini hangover.
