Roast Potatoes

-- Put cubed potatoes, 1/2 the onion, 1/2 the garlic, the bell pepper and 1/4 cup of olive oil in a 9 x 12 glass or aluminum pan. Mix together. Season with salt and pepper.

--Roast the potatoes for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes, until browned.

--Let roasted potatoes cool.

Saute Kale

--In a large pan, saute 1/2 the onion and 1/2 the garlic in 2 tablespoons olive oil about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 the kale, stir to mix, cover pot and simmer until kale wilts.
