That’s what the cashier at the supermarket said to me this morning as he was ringing up my order. He was referring to the giant bag o’ kale I’d been excited to find.
“Yes,” I told him.
“I thought that’s the stuff they put on plates at fancy restaurants to make it look nice.”t’
I had to think about that for a second because I hadn’t had any coffee yet. “Yes,” I finally agreed. “They do use it for that. I cook it…like spinach….it’s kinda bitter, but it’s good.”
“I didn’t think people actually ate it.”
I bit my tongue and refrained from asking him why he thought the store sold it.
