My thoughts:
      Overall I loved it. I felt the kale was a little odd. I like kale but it just tasted weird in this. Leftovers were finished (by me). The kids liked everything but kept pulling the kale out and putting out on the side to be thrown away. 

You win some you lose some. I won mostly with this recipe.
