No collard greens, though, which I was in the mood for, too. Argh! (Leafy greens with calcium: more proof Mother Nature's a fantastic inventor.) So my side dish was cole slaw. I considered adding onion rings, too, but decided that'd be, er, overly decadent. But I was tempted.
To detour screechingly into other news, there's going to be a comic book adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand. A counter guy at Excalibur Comics informed me. Already I'm wondering who'll adapt, who'll draw, and (this marks my geekiness) the important question what era it's going to be set in. Late Seventies, like the original novel? Late Eighties, like the expanded novel? Mid-Nineties, like the miniseries? Now, like...now? These are important considerations!
