Kale was not the focus here; Bean had bought some to use in his soup and I threw in a leaf or two. But it was the only ingredient I haven't tasted before! I let stew some:
lil' red wine
many chopped mushrooms
and then when it was a'simmering, I cracked an egg in it. Was yum. We also tried a new wine.
Drip, drip, drip.
