There are some things that just scream "Holidays" - Lines to see Santa at the mall, Menorahs, and family gatherings. In many households, food is a big part of those gatherings. One of the most popular side dishes at many dinners, including my house, is collard greens. My wife recently went shopping for Christmas dinner items and mentioned that she had trouble finding collard greens. This was not just a local supply issue. It turns out that there is a significant collard greens shortage right now. Hurricanes, heavy rainfall, and Santa Ana wind-related wildfires are to blame.
