My latest obsession - Kale Chips

I know I may be a little behind the game but I have a new obsession and it happens to be homemade Kale Chips. We braved the rain & wind of Tropical Storm Debby and did our weekly shopping at Sanwa Market yesterday. I made the mistake of going in hungry. I came out with all sorts of fruits, vegetables & spices I have never cooked with! Darlynn and I were having a discussion about Kale the other day and I noticed it was being sold in a package of 4 heads for $3. How could I possibly turn that down? I'm going to be a nice friend and share my bounty with her.
So experiment one with Kale is making Kale Chips. We are making an effort to eat healthy this week. I removed the rib from the kale and cut it into 1" pieces.
Sprayed them lightly with Pam Organic Olive Oil Spray and seasoned them with Cavenders Greek Seasoning (my "I put this on everything" seasoning) & Chef Pauls Veggie Magic.
I put them into the oven for 20 min at 275. Flipped them over at the 10 min mark. I devoured the bowl in minutes.

I wish I got a photo of Gabe trying these out. His face was scrunched up, thinking he would dislike them. But he ate a bowl of them - his Mom would be so proud. These chips are practically guilt free, especially if you use the olive oil spray vs. traditional olive oil.
