Neck Bones and Gravy

An old southern classic momma use to cook neck bones in a pot with potatoes, onions, and gravy called neck bone soup Now it may sound a little crazy It's the neck of some animal's baby and these neck bones, if you eat them will truly make you feel lazy I don't know why I even tried the neck bones and gravy Could it be, I truly believe this wonderful aroma must have hypnotized me Now I'm in love with the sweet tender meat and I have it every once in awhile A bowl with some cornbread is just so comforting It will make your body smile You can roast them in the oven cook them on the grill serve them with greens, beans, mac and cheese, or anything savory but it's nothing like A good old pot of neck bones and gravy

This poem bespeaks the true Southern tradition. I remember this dish and all the accoutrements. But from Cali to Maine, this dish is the same. Thanks for the fragrant, tasty reminder! Delectably written!
