Collard Greens

I like Irish music,stories....since we already baked the bread(Irish Soda Bread), made a trial attempt with Green Punch, you know the result was not sooooooo....good. (Yesterday night by 10'o clock we went to wal-mart and bought Hawaiian punch for my little sugar's class.) We don't have any food in Green color. I got collard green and thought that color would be perfect for today!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
