Today is Sunday and usually I will eat out with my family after church services.  Today was different though because we went downtown for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure where more than 12,000 people came to support loved ones that either are fighting breast cancer, currently survivors, or lost their battle with it.  After we all got back home and I asked my daughter what she wanted to eat for dinner later tonight, she quickly said Red Lobster. Well, today would be one of those days none of us would not be able to go out to eat, so we settled on trying to fix something similar at home.  Here is the delicious result! View Post

One of my favorite dishes in the whole wide world are GREENS.  Yasssssss hunny, believe me when I tell you all that I just love them!  This is honestly something that I have grown up eating since a little baby.  Greens are expected on the menu in my house every single time Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Easter roll around. I have fond memories of my grandmother and grandfather cleaning greens together, cutting them apart, and simmering a huge stock pot full of them.. enough for all the family to eat their full.   I could never get enough of it as a child although my daughter isn’t quite yet that fond of vegetables.  I’m still hoping that she grows out of this stage.

 

The issue I’ve always had with fixing greens though, is who has time to prepare them?  I mean, You’ve got to wash them throughly, and take out the stems, cut em all in small pieces and then keep an eye on the pot once it’s cooking… Ugh!  That said, I sometimes can be a lazy cook, and so here’s where the pre-cut bags and slow cooker comes in!
