dinner...thighs, collards, taters and onions

3 of my favorite things....thighs with Rev Marvin, roasted
onions and taters, and collards (left over from New Years, but
from my back yard).


a shot or two from a Christmas present...

Looks good cappy..cept that green leafy plant substance looks a little suspicious if you get my drift..wink wink. Now we gonna need to move you from that sissified Crown over to Ezra. It 90 proof for character and aged to make it mellow. It's the only sour mash bourbon worthy of a cork instead of a lid. Has a lot of pizzaz to it. Crown tastes a lot like warm water to me. Now I will drink Crown if its free but I just about as soon have a shot of vodky if that the only two choices. Give Ezra a try. It will make a person handsome..smart..and tough. Now that is is you mix it with coke. If you drink it with a little crick water and a few ice cubbies it put a person to sleep sorta like beer.

Collards are unique, kind of a bitter taste, but in a good way.

BW, I'll finish the Crown since it was free, and then go back
to Jack Daniels.....I might try some Ezra if I can remember.
I don't drink a lot of likker.

The whole pic looks good. From the food to the crown. Tried to put Crown Royal out of business last night but failed. All I got was a fill bad today.

Easy to do, just takes a little while. Get big fresh bunch.
Drop a couple of smoked ham hocks into some water
and boil for about an hour, until the hocks are very tender.
Add about a teaspoon of salt. Add water if needed.

While that's going prep the collards...wash the leaves,
and cut out the big long center vein. Roll up the leaves
and slice em into strips. You're going to have a bunch
of greens, but they will boil down.

Fill the pot, as they wilt, keep adding till all of em are in there.
Now some people complain about the odor or cooking collards
indoors, so keep that in mind.

If the greens are fresh, it'll only take 15 to 20 minutes.
It might take up to 30 minutes though...just don't overcook.
Stir em every now and then.

That's it. Lots of people like to put hot sauce on em.
I love em with cooked onions. The remaining juice
is called "pot liquor" and is excellent for sopping up with
biscuits or cornbread.

One thing to note about greens. Mustard greens and turnip greens have a rough textured leaf and have to be washed several times to get all the dirt off of them.

While collard greens are a smoother texture it is still advisable to wash them at least three times.
