Yep!! You're a suthernah! Spelling intended!!
OH--'Poke salat' is akin to spinach?? That explains why I hated it when granny fixed it!
HAPPINESS is not a fish you catch but a fish you feed.
It's Poke salad, yes and I love it, course I do like spinach too. Lambs Quarter is another good one,nearly as proliferate too.But be sure to blanch the Poke before cooking, it's got poisons. And only eat the new tender shoots, never the older stalk or berries.
Knowledge is the best prep, costs little, weighs nothing,can be shared but not stolen.
I never ate Poke Sallet, but loved the song, "Poke Salad Annie", written by Tony Joe White, recorded and a hit by him and Elvis Presley. Others that did the song were Tom Jones, Clarence Reid and Conan O'Brien. I loved hearing the song on the Juke Box at that bar on the Meramac River I used to go to with Grandma and Grandpa most Fridays; late sixties - they'd get smashed and drive me home, no seatbelts.

Merriam-Webster wouldn't list the definition in its free version but it looks like everyone is right.
“Yes, I'm a great optimist. but, when trying to make a decision, I often think of the worst case scenario. I call it 'the eaten by wolves factor.' If I do something, what's the most terrible thing that could happen? Would I be eaten by wolves? One thing that makes it possible to be an optimist, is if you have a contingency plan for when all hell breaks loose. There are a lot of things I don't worry about, because I have a plan in place if they do.”
