Got leftover turkey? How about ham?
We have both in our house. Since most of the stuffing and veggies were packed up and sent home with family, I found it necessary to create a side dish from the dregs in the vegetable bin to turn my leftovers into dinner.
I’m not a fan of russet potatoes. I don’t care for the texture, unless I’m baking them to stuff with ham and broccoli (which is what’s going to happen to the leftover ham along with split pea soup).
My potato recipes typically include Yukon Gold or red potatoes. I like their waxy texture and contrasting colors.
After all the holiday fuss, this oh-so-not-fussy side dish with garlic, onion and a squeeze of lemon juice was a refreshing choice after the heavier holiday sides we consumed yesterday.
I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. Below is my favorite picture from our gathering.
These are the Rimkus men of the family, including the littlest Rimkus men. They’re quite a group. I think I’ll keep them.
If you celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope your holiday was filled with family and fun too!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I’ll see you back here on Monday with another healthy recipe to share.
Shake It Up! If kale isn't your thing, spinach would work just as well. Just don't saute it quite as long. Spinach wilts more quickly over heat than kale.
- 2 medium potatoes, cubed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 cups kale, chopped and packed
- 1 cup green onion, sliced
- 1 sqeeze lemon juice
- ½ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
- Steam potatoes until just tender.
- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat with olive oil. Add potatoes and cook 3 - 4 minutes to brown, then add kale, green onion and garlic.
- Stir fry for 3 - 5 minutes to wilt kale, then add a splash of lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
- Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.

Thanks to this devastating tornado, an intense need for food, water, shelter, medical attention, and psychological care is needed and we can help.This year the Rimkus family is forgoing our usual gift craziness, and focusing on helping the Red Cross serve the Philippines.
