Garlic Baked Chicken and Kale & Nail tip

So I made dinner last night (boyfriend helped- he's the greatest :) ). I just kind of made something up. Threw a few things together and this is what I came up with...

Garlic Baked Chicken with Kale and Caramelized Onions


Sautee the onion and garlic in olive oil until the onions ate translucent


Kale before it went into the skillet


Add Kale to the skillet


once bright green remove from heat and put in serving bowl


FINISHED PRODUCT!

1lb Boneless skinless chicken breast
Garlic Salt
Pepper
Italian Seasoning
1lb Kale

Directions:
1. Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place chicken in pan and season with Garlic Salt and Pepper to taste. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of EVOO.

4. Heat EVOO in pan, add garlic and onion and cook until onion is translucent.

NAIL TIP: (no pun intended)
I did my nails and I came across a tip on how to dry them faster. I don't know about you guys, but no matter how early I paint them and no matter how late I go to bed, I always wake up the next morning with marks on my nails. This fast drying tip involves sticking your fingers in ice water for a whole minute- can I tell you, it's the longest 60 seconds ever- but I must say... It actually works!

All you need is a bowl, ice cubes, and cold water (I used half a tray of ice cubes)
I gave my nails an ice bath after each coat, but not right after I apply the paint. I wait until they're mostly dry (which, in my case, doesn't take too long) and I test them but rubbing my nails together. If they still feel a little (very little usually) tacky then I wait a few minutes before applying the next coat. Once I've finished painting them I soak them 2-3 more times about 30 minutes apart - just to be sure they're really dry. By that time my ice water is all but water. Hope this tip helps!
