I love these things!!!!!!!!!!! :)
In the South, it can sometimes be hard to find any kind of vegetable for hundreds of miles around. So I stockpile various greens 'n' beans, especially from the Margaret Holmes line. With rich smoky flavors, these are nutritious and delicious. Much better than a plain old can of spinach! These are available at pretty much every shop in the South, although I'd never heard of or seen them before getting here.

You can see a lengthier list of their products here!
By the way, I also love how at Amazon you can get such earthy, deep reviews for a can of greens:

A very nice change of pace from your normal collards or turnip greens. This is a
combination of turnip, kale and mustard greens. And if you've never had mustard
greens they do have a flavor that is peppery and somewhat bitter. Thats probably
what the other reviewer mistook as a "tobacco" flavor. In any event, the mustard
greens are very healthy, have documented anti-cancer properties, and are a nice
complement to the crunchy goodness of the kale, and the stringy magic of the
turnip greens.

Makes a great side dish with fish or chicken, but these greens really shine alongside
pork dishes, and especially pulled or roast pork. Another winner from Margaret Holmes.

Woohoooooo! :)
Made it to Birmingham, Alabama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
This city is a mix of beauty and ugly. An old industrial engine in the southern heart of America, it spreads out among the beautiful hills and rivers.
The place has lots of hospitals and churches, not so much in the way of convenient areas to walk and stop.
I love arriving in a city. The lights, the people, the noises, the tunnels, the spraypraint, the buildings, the traffic, the near-death experiences, the magic, the wonder, the life!!! :)
On the ride over here, I stopped in at a Bojangles, another fried chicken chain. (There are many here.) The chicken and biscuits were OK, maybe somewhat subpar with too much oil. The place played Christian rock music non-stop, which I haven't heard done elsewhere.
Getting set for an awesome new week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
Rock & Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
