It is to larf: when I read Olivia's note about greens my first reaction was exactly the same as -- is it? -- Olva's in the first reply above: "Yeah, yeah, but greens need bacon and that means they're going to come racing over from the Heart Association to confiscate my card."
Then I had a second thought: "Hmm, ya don't have to have bacon. Ya could fry up a little garlic in ollive oil, and that would probably do the trick..."
Then I started reading the replies, and Lo, the first two were exactly the same as my first two thoughts. Sure, eating steamed collards can make you feel holy, but collards slathered in olive oil and garlic make you immune to the need to feel holy.
