Happy New Year!!!


Well, folks...here we are. January 1. Now, if you are southern like moi you surely know of the tradition of eating hog jowl and black eyed peas on New Year's for prosperity in the coming year. However, if you find your pantry bare of these two items substitutions may be allowed. At least, I'm hoping they're allowed. I ate some ham that was cooked in my Cracker Barrel turnip greens for lunch today and I just watched "Boom Boom Pow" (the clean version) on YouTube. Yep, luck will be coursing through my veins in no time flat!

You could have skipped up the road to join us, Tyla - the hog jowl, blackeye peas, and cabbage were a part of our New Year's, too. I have to share with you how Seth referred to a friend what hog jowl is like. He said that it is 'bacon on steroids'. We agree!

'Bacon on steroids', that's funny! Your supper sounds better than my CB meal was. I'll have to remember that next New Year's Day and plan a neighborly visit. ;)
