Black Kale with Garlic and Onions
(a good one from Fine Cooking)
Recipe By : Bill Telepan

1 lb kale, washed and dried and stemmed

occasionally. The kale should have still have a little bite but shouldn't bestringy or tough.
2. Drain in a colander and press with the back of a large spoon to squeezeout as much excess liquid as possible. When the kale is cool enough totouch, chop it into small pieces.
3. Melt 3 Tbs. of the butter in the 8 qt. pot over medium heat. Add the onionand garlic and a pinch of salt. Cook covered, stirring occasionally, untilsoftened, about 5 minutes.
4. Add the broth, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and maintain a gentlesimmer, and cook for five minutes.
5. Return the kale to the pot, stir in the remaining 3 Tbs. butter, seasongenerously with pepper and cook until the flavors are blended, about 7minutes.
Day Two:
Green Salad with Cranberries, Pecans, Goat Cheese and Apple CiderVinaigrette
 As usual, you can make your own salad here, but I really like this one, and you do already have the maple syrup
Serves 4 - 64 cups red leaf lettuce1/2 cup toasted pecan halves1/2 cup dried cranberries1/4 cup Goat Cheese1 Tbs maple syrup3 Tbs apple cider vinegar4 Tbs salad oilkosher salt1/2 tsp cracked black pepper1. Mix the maple syrup, cider vinegar, salt and pepper together. Whisk in theoil.
2. Tear the red leaf lettuce into bite-size pieces. Add pecans, driedcranberries and crumble the goat cheese over the top. Drizzle with thedressing and toss to dress evenly. All the dressing may not be needed.
Maple Syrup and Mustard Glazed Hens
OK, for this one, I almost never marinate these guys as long as it says to, and trust me, it'snot a deal-breaker. But if you remember to do that, go, you! Also, you can cook them in the
oven in a pyrex baking dish if you are lucky enough to have your grill buried under threefeet of snow. The one thing you'll need to think ahead on with this is that the hens areusually frozen, so you'll want to thaw them in the fridge beforehand. (obviously)
4 cornish hens2 tsp dried mustard1/2 tsp cinnamon2 Tbs cider vinegar2/3 cup maple syrup3 Tbs dijon mustard2 Tbs soy saucesalt and pepper, to taste
1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except the hens and mix thoroughly.
2. Butterfly the hens. (Split them in two - I like to use poultry shears orheavy-duty kitchen shears for this.) Marinate butterflied hens inmaple/mustard mixture one hour at room temperature or in the fridgeovernight.
3. Remove the hends from the marinade and grill the hens over mediumheat on the grill. I put them on a foil lined pan so it doesn't gunk up my grill.Or you can cook these in the oven at about 400F in a pyrex dish. Either way,they should be done in about 40 minutes. Simmer reserved sauce on stoveuntil reduced about half while the hens are cooking. Serve over top of hens.
Parmesan Potatoes
4 large russet potatoes, cut lengthwise into eighths (wedges)1/4 cup olive oil1 tsp crushed red pepper
Kosher salt and cracked black pepper1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
Position rack in lowest third of oven and preheat to 375F. Place potatoes
in a large bowl. Add oil and red pepper, season with salt and pepper andparmesan cheese and toss to coat. Place on a baking sheet lined withparchment. Bake until tender on inside and crispy on outside, turning once,about one hour. ____________________________________________
