Colonel Mustard greens

Colonel Mustard, in the kitchen, with ... the greens! Yesterday Jake and I tended to the garden and brought home a lot of mustard greens. To start using them up I made stir-fry tonight. I combined carrots, red peppers, broccoli, egg, chicken, and mustard greens and then made a hodge-podge orange sauce with fresh squeezed orange juice, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, a bit of flour and some oil. Not too shabby for a throw together meal! 
The greens have a very distinct flavor. I like them in small quantities, but there is definately a LARGE quantity of them remaining in the fridge. Maybe I'll try wilted mustard tomorrow. Copious amounts of bacon make anything wonderful, right? :)
