When Tropical Storm Lee blew out of here, it took a lot of hot air with it, and left us with the feel of an early, classic Gulf coast autumn. My appetite suddenly turned to Hopkins Boarding House squash casserole, collard greens, turnip roots and a wedge of stone ground cornbread.
I cooked the greens with a small piece of smoked turkey leg and a generous shake of dried cut red peppers. The shaker top was inexplicably missing on the red pepper jar, and so that “generous shake” was more like a free pour. No hot pepper sauce needed. They were great!
