Blog moving to KaleAndAle.com

Kale and AleLoyal readers of this blog, I am pleased to announce I have moved to KaleAndAle.com! The same blog (with a few tweaks and exciting things along the way) can be found at the new site.

I’m sad to say if you subscribe to this blog by email you will have to submit your email information again to Kale and Ale, but it is near the top on the right. Please “like” Kale and Ale on Facebook. Or add Kale and Ale to your RSS feed.

I did try to make this transition as easy as possible. I am excited and enjoy blogging and sharing, so I hope you continue reading. I think you for your support.

Things are quieter over here. Have you noticed? I do apologize, but  big things are happening. I’m taking advantage of the last days before it gets crazy hot to run. I did my second 10k and am squeezing in a 5k and hopefully another 10k before the end of the Florida race season. And I have some exciting things in the works on the blog front. So stay tuned to this site and I will fill you in really soon. Until then, the blog posts will be a little lighter than normal. Sorry!

Happy Easter and Passover to all my friends and readers! Hope it’s filled with a lot of great food, drink and family.

It’s almost time for baseball! Can’t wait. I went to a few spring training games but am ready for the regular season. Here are some food notes, updates and changes related to your favorite team. Which, as they state, if you are a Marlins fan, is only 268 people.

I came across a pretty cool chart for beer and food pairings (didn’t post it here because it’s large and deep).

The race to grow and eat the world’s hottest chili. This is a hot story!

This is a great bit. A man tells Williamsburg hipsters that a Guy Fieri restaurant is moving into the neighborhood. It will be “factory farm to table” and, for some reason, they are horrified.
