When my family moved back to North Carolina on one of the first days of 5th grade while in the lunch line the lunch lady asked me, "Want some greens?". I, not know what "greens" were, responded, "Green what?" While I was thinking green beans? lima beans? salad? The lunch lady then responded "Greens." Apparently I still looked confused because she then held up a spoonful of some sort of wilted, brownish green leaves and said, "Vegetables!." I have to say I passed on trying greens that day.

A few days ago Suzanne had a dinner of southern-style chicken-pot-pie (known as chicken and dumplings to you non-southern folk) and collard greens. It sure was yummy!
