#singing Even ot the nerve to say you’re better than my momma’s Collard Greens and Cornbread . . . (Fantasia “Collard Greens and Cornbread”)
I’m Haitian, collard greens isn’t a a staple dish in our culture. But I shol do love me some collard greens. I usually add some hot sauce and the rest is history. I went grocery shopping yesterday with this dish in mind. I’m subscribed to CookingwithCarolyn and boy did she give me a great recipe. Ok I must admit I added some turkey bacon instead of a smoked turkey wing but I did not eat the meat. I have more greens so I hope to find another recipe that is totally vegetarian. But after I watched her video I was like I got to make it like that sans the turkey wings. My mom made breakfast this morning and she had left over turkey bacon so I just added it to my greens.
Preparing greens take a little bit of time. Washing and rewashing and washing and rewashing. My hands started to hurt. But it was so worth the hurting hands. I made some cornbread to go with it and the pair is ridculously scrumptous! I topped my greens with chopped tomatoes and onions. YUMMY!
If I’m going to have great meal days like this ahead I may stay on this path forever.
