To the left, we have collard greens as grown in the wild, a city porch. Right now I have a All Clad stock pot full of these, three pork neckbones, gobs of garlic, a whole white onion chopped up, lots of yellow mustard, juice of a few lemons, splash of white vinegar, about a 1/2 bottle of Crystal Hot Sauce and too much salt. The house smells like you would imagine.
The thing is this disgusting-looking-smelling combination is one of the most terrific things you can eat, especially with a meat such as fried chicken or yes, that Thanksgiving bird, Mr. Turkey.
Anyways, I got about 3 hours of sleep after taking cold meds, watching No Country for Old Men (Tommy Lee Jones' character? Extraneous.) and allowing myself to go into panic mode about timing all the cooking for today. Someone please bring me some Xanax if you have them.
