Collard Green Verdict is IN

Anniemaesbakery-216.jpg

As far as I can remember Collard Greens have been a staple in our family’s menu. At every gathering, holiday, special occasion, funeral repast, etc there were COLLARD GREENS. As a kid collard greens wasn’t my favorite thing to eat but I took comfort knowing they were there. As I grew older and developed an appreciation for them I looked forward to seeing and eating them. As many of you may have heard the controversy about Neiman Marcus selling $66 collard greens plus another $15 for shipping. For those who may not have here is the link to an article.

Collard Greens were not invented buy Black people but I must say that many of us have mastered the art of preparing them including my grandmother, mother, my sister and myself. So I can safely say we know a little somethin  somethin about making a pot of smokin collard greens. I prefer to mix kale with mine. I prepare them with a vegetable broth oppose and meatless. For centuries meat has been added to collards. Ham hocks, smoked neck bones or smoked turkey has been known to grace the pot of collard greens. As of late I prefer no meat. I remember the day I decided to eliminate meat. I was nervous. I was feeling like I was breaking some sort of law. Performing some sacrilegious act by going meatless. Much to my surprise I enjoyed them more. Now I go MEATLESS.

Pineapple Cashew Shrimp & Lobster Fried Rice

IMG_20160611_231929

I LOVE Food…ALL KINDS….ESPECIALLY dishes with seafood. My daughter wanted me to make some fried rice. She then suggested pineapple as an ingredient as well as cashews. MY FAVES as well. I love when I have all the ingredients to make a dish. I’ll even take most of the ingredients. I just had to get green onion. I made the rice a day in advance. Day old cold or frozen rice makes for the BEST fried rice. Day old cold rice is best because it prevents the rice from being overcooked and soggy.

I use Spanish onion. I don’t use yellow onions. I hate the taste. Spanish onions are better. I used fresh pineapple and roasted cashews. I sautéed this in sesame oil and set aside. I added in some fresh corn and scrambled eggs.

I seasoned the seafood with salt & pepper. I LOVE FOOD & FOOD LOVES ME TOO
