We got our first vegetable share in a CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, almost three weeks ago. I decided that signing up for one would force me to eat more vegetables. I cooked up some collard greens in butter -- a lot of collard greens. But I don't know if there's enough butter in the world to make collard greens taste good.

We sat around the table. I put roughly two cups of it on my plate and started eating. The kids picked at their 1/4 cups worth. "Did I eat enough?" Jake asked.

"No!" I roar as I'm choking it down. "I'm eating two cups worth, you all need to eat more!"

Not a great first experience. And everyone I talked to said that I should have cut it up and added it to soup.
