Make it hot. Wiggle. Loosen up sister. If kids were roaming the streets today doing this, they would be teaching you how to twerk. Ugh.

Polk Salad Annie

Take your pick from several renditions of the 1969 hit by Tony Joe White. Polk salad, properly spelled "poke," is American pokeweed, a poisonous plant that needs to be boiled, rinsed, then boiled again before sautéing it in a skillet with bacon fat. A "poke" is a small bag or sack. Sock a little polk salad to me. Chomp, chomp, chomp.
