I know little about collards but I certainly understand pie. A very enticing piece. Thank you!

To be filled from memory! What a beautiful piece. God bless.

a very soothing haiku!

Krissie said...

yes to be full on both counts, in life, and in tummy and know when to stop, you put that in the right context, especially at this time of the year when its so easy to over indulge! ( I have a sweet tooth and its hard not to over eat on them!)
