  1. At the Verona pick up, I mentioned what I’ve been doing with the Siberian kale–a very tasty kale pesto and tomato pie–and a few people asked for the recipe. I got it here:

    I use frozen pie crust and leave it in the tin. I also followed the directions for cooking the crust first, since it was pretty mushy when I didn’t. I bet the filing would be great in a vegetarian lasagna, too.

  2. Thanks, Mark. Looks like we should get cooking!
