Jerk Kale and Red Beans

  I am not a doctor. I can not diagnose, cure, treat, prevent disease and illness. I am just here to share my experiences and things that I've learned.
Hey fam!
We finally arrived back home from our short family vacation. It was an awesome time visiting with family. There is nothing more important to me than time with family showing love to one another. We've laughed, cried, prayed, got stuck in the rain, sat in nature, watched movies, and of course ate some good good food together. One thing you can never get back is time, so we must be mindful of how we spend it. 
Upon our arrival back home, I looked inside of our refrigerator and realized that we had left a bunch of kale in there. I thought to myself, why wouldn't I have chopped this up and put it into the freezer? It was almost completely dried out, but I am not a fan of wasting totally good food if it isn't spoiled. I did what I know how to do best...Improvise!
