Guess what I had for dinner last night?

Collards from my garden!  Yes! A little bit larger than palm size picked from around the outside of the plants.  Enough for two generous servings!  Actually, except for a couple of bites, I ate them by myself.  My hubs is not a "collards" kind of man.  He said they were good though!  He opted for a salad (greens from my garden!!) with a Roma tomato and a generous amount of bacon pieces!  I didn't prepare the collards in the traditional "cover and cook with water" method.  I rolled them up and sliced them (chiffonade style!) and then sauted them in a little olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper, a teaspoon of sugar (even small leaves can be bitter) and a tablespoon or so of the bacon fat, along with some of the bacon pieces (from my hubs' salad fixins). You should try them cooked this way!  Very High Yum Factor!
