Green Stuff

I ate greens tonight. Not just any greens. Turnip greens.

I should have taken a picture, because I'm sure no one believes me.

I realize that I'm from the South...the DEEP SOUTH, even...but when it comes to green stuff, I usually pass. Ok not usually...ALWAYS.

I've gotten better, though. I've had asparagus a few times, and I eat spinach now. That's right...SPINACH! My mother is shocked and awed. Kelli and greens are equivalent to cats and water, you see. But yes, I have cooperated with the food police (that would be my uncle) and tried several green veggies since living under his roof. He also talked me into sampling tuna steak, which I have to say didn't go over very well. He claims that he'll have me eating medium rare beef soon, but I can assure you that he will not win that battle. No sir. My filet mignon shall forever resemble a hockey puck swimming in A1 sauce. Well done, thankyouverymuch.

The lingering flavor of turnip greens resides annoyingly on my taste buds, therefore I shall retire to my chocolate now. A lovely evening to one and all.

I eat quite a few "Greens" but turnips aren't one of them. lol I eat spinach but only if its raw. I dont like cooked spinach.

I do like brocolli, green beans, peas, lettuce, aspargus, raw spinach, brussel sprouts (especially with cheese on top) OH and artichokes!!

I like my red meat well done also. NOT mooing. lol
