COVER AND COLLARDS


OMCs/OMDs you will never believe what happened here at the homestead last Saturday.  
  Mom and Dad came home with nearly 8 lbs of fresh collards.
I KNEW I NEEDED TO TAKE
COVER
THERE WAS WATER FLYING AND MOM  KEPT TOSSING  COLLARD STALKS AT THE TRASH CAN ON THE FLOOR.  


MOM HAD 3 BUNCHES TO WASH AND PREPARE
FOR COOKING.  THIS IS THE FIRST BUNCH

 FINALLY THEY WERE WASHED AND READY TO
COOK AT 3:47.  THANK GOODNESS I WAS SMART ENOUGH
TO TAKE COVER.   I WAS SURE THEY WERE ABOUT 
TO JUMP OUT OF THE POT
 THEN THEY STARTED TO COOK DOWN
BY 3:55 PM THEY WERE READY TO 
 SAMPLE
 MOM AND DAD WERE TALKING ABOUT HOW TASTY THEY WERE.  REST ASSURED THIS IS ONE THING I WAS NOT ABOUT TO TASTE. I DO NOT EAT VEGGIES
EVEN WHEN THEY ARE TOPPED WITH BACON.
MOM WILL SERVE HALF OF THEM ON THANKSGIVING\
AND THE OTHER HALF ON CHRISTMAS.
MOM HERE: THIS IS A TRUE STORY.  MADI HEARD THE COMMOTION, CAME TO CHECK IT OUT THEN SOUGHT 
SHELTER.

  3. Our Mommy was wondering bout those wonderful collard greens! We luv your little hidey spot in the chair under the table. How sweet of the Mom to put a pillow in it for your comfort. Have a happy Tuesday to my favorite tuxie. (Shh, don't tell Precious!) ((Hugs)) from your mancat, Prancer PIe.

  4. Is this another lesson in "language of the South"?! We had to look up what Collards are! We have something very similar but they are called either Greens,Spring greens or Kale. I'd probably eat trhem if they were chopped up....and especially with bacon! Deccy x

  5. We'd have eaten the bacon!

  6. We in this household share in Deccy's confusion. For a moment I thought it was some sort of duck - now that would have been exciting.

  9. What are collards Madi? We have never heard of them. Yikes I'd hide too specially as we don't do green things either. Have a terrific Tuesday my little Diva.

  11. Yuck. We don't think we'd want to eat them, even with bacon. It's a toss-up for our mom too, if the consistency of collars is like cooked spinach (not sure!). :-)

  12. Madi....you should try it. I never thought I'd like lettuce and now it's my most favorite thing to eat, especially if Mom puts a tomato on top.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Will you be having fried okra too? Must be fried in bacon grease, but I'm sure your mom knows that.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yum, I'll eat any veggies but I'd love them even more, if her in doors put Bacon on them :) xx00xx

  15. That sure looks like a good hidey spot to keep away from flying collards and all the water splashing about. I know what collards are, but how do you keep the cooked ones to serve later (especially until Christmas)?

  16. My Mom has never had collard greens nor does she think she would like them. She doesn't do spinich either. You were smart to stay far, far away!

  17. I would've sought shelter too, Madi. You never know what those sneaky greens are going to do!

  18. They do get nutty this time of year

  21. i thought ALL the stories here were True! MOL BOL LOL... I hate picking collards, i hate washing collards, i hate cooking collards, but I LOVE eating them... so keep a plate set for me. daddy grew greens year round in his garden, which ever would grow in that season, collards, mustard, turnip greens. the mustard greens we could also eat on a sandwich like lettuce. fond memories. did Madi tell you they STINK?

  22. Greens are gross. My humans like them too. What's wrong with them?

  23. Collards are good eating Madi. You need to eat your veggies to keep your Diva girl figure!

  24. We must admit we have never seen any collards around here. But Mom loves spinach and beet greens, so maybe she needs to give those big green leaves a try too - and then she can share the bacon with us.

  25. I love almost all of our southern greens. But I simply cannot abide the smell of collards cooking. So we never have them at our house.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lol - always, always run far far away from veggies Maddie! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. They look yummy! I certainly would give them a try! Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh yum! I love collard greens! Madi, you are missing out!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would share it with my staff: the bacon for me and they could have the whole collard. I'm a goooood dog ;o)

  30. Madi, thank COD, you took cover. You just never know when things are going to boil over. None of us are collard eaters here either. Hope the peeps enjoy their Turkey day food. Hope all of you have a great day.

  36. Good move Madi, never know what a carzy women in the kitchen will lose it over, and then there could be flying knifes, or pots or even food!

  37. Holy Collard Greens, Madi! We don't think we'd eat those either...but we'd eat that bacon!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. We have never heard of collards, but we don't like veggies anyway unless it is a bit of grass stuck to the mousies we are nomming.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Madi, we think you are very wise to seek cover!

    Your Pals,

  40. I have never tasted collards. Trudy says she and Grandpa would never touch them, but Nonnie loves greens, so she would give them a try. Happy Thanksgiving.

  41. Kolchak would have slurped the right up off the floor, no question! He loves his veggies! Thanks for joining in the Tasty Tuesday hop!
