mentioned before that I'm a Southerner. I was born and
raised in Atlanta, Georgia, the home of Co-Cola. And
I call it that, too. Well, here's a bento box full of
Southern fare! Barbecue rotisserie chicken - those things
last a while of you're single - boiled
collard greens with mayonnaise on the side, light-fried
plantains, corn bread - sorry, no recipe, as it came in a box
- and fudge.
However, I found one of the boundaries to my Southernness.
Before cooking this I went to Kroger and found hamhocks,
which so many collard greens recipes call for. And...
I said forget it, there's no way I'm eating anything
that's been cooked with those. I regularly eat octopus,
and I've even eaten jellyfish, but pig feet (or, indeed,
any part of the pig which isn't muscle tissue) is where
I draw the line!
