    Last Night

    I had greens, fried potatoes and cornbread for supper. Naturally, I washed it all down with sweet tea!  I may be broke this week, butI doubt that a king eats any better!:)

    Heck Ya

    My parents were raised in the country and this was a meal for us growing up.   Add a little vinegar to the greens and a glass of milk to break the cornbread into and I am good.  Sometimes I will eat just cornbread in milk for dinner.
