Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack

Pink Anderson with sumthin' only Good Ol' Boys understand...

Ol' Pink might have been singin' about sumthin' else, but let's be literal here.  About which, yes.  Collard greens, turnip greens, kale, and spinach... the latter as a last resort.  If you're a traditionalist you buy 'em FRESH and cook 'em up in a big pot with a BIG-ass piece o' fat back and let 'em simmer most all day.  There's times when you either can't or don't want to go to the trouble of doin' it up right, and that's OK, coz a couple o' tablespoons of bacon grease works just as well.   And speakin' o' that... one good way to tell if you're in a Suthin' kitchen is the presence of sumthin' that looks like this:

That would be my ADCOM NCO Academy coffee cup, which has been used as a repository for bacon grease for at least as long as I can remember.  I learned that from my Mom.


  1. Nice.

    FWIW, the Portuguese 'round these parts make an awesome kale soup. Just sayin'...

  2. We've been having lots of Kale lately - good for you food.

    That music was good, but if you want some good cookin' music, this is it. If you ain't dancin' around the kitchen to Guy Clark, you ain't livin'.

    1. The tune was new to me, Lou, and it's just AWESOME.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
