Creamed Kale

So I buy kale pretty often, but sometimes the bunches are kind of scrawny, and sometimes they’re HUGE. Like so huge that I don’t know what to do with that much kale. Recently, after getting through about half of a gigantic bunch of kale, I was getting kind of tired of it. I decided to…
