I promised you something edible to go along with the postcards, and I almost missed my own deadline today! That’s nothing new, though. Sometimes it just does happen that I’m a day late and a dollar short. I’m happy to say that today there are no turkeys in sight though.
Here’s what I cooked for you –
Start with bacon
When the bacon is brown and crisp, remove it from the pan and pour out the bacon fat but leave enough to toss some minced onions around till soft, then some collards
When the collards are all nice and melted down, throw in a handful of dried cranberries, some thyme, salt and pepper, and a bit of lemon juice and cook just a moment longer
Remove from pan and stir into the bowl you’ve already filled with the insides of baked sweet potatoes
It is waiting for you to eat it! There are no scary turkeys anywhere!
If you’ve worked quickly and if the kitchen is hot, these can be eaten immediately. Otherwise re-heat in moderate oven (or, wrap and save for another day)!
