ABC Wednesday—Y is for "happy new YEAR!"

Stirring up the collards for the Hoppin' John, a
fine (and delicious!) old Southern New Year's Day
tradition.  (You can find some info here.)
Hope you had lots of fun last night 

and will enjoy all the very best in 2014!

  1. Never had Hoppin Johns. Gotta look that recipe up.

    I had a friend over last for an Indian meal, made by moi, and we watched a Hindi film....

    Namaste and Happy New Year!

  2. And some Black-Eyed Peas I see. Before I moved to Arkansas I had never heard of the tradition of eating Black-Eyed Peas on New Years. In the past business here would give out cans of Black-Eyed Peas with labels advertising their business.

  3. Ooh that looks divine! This looks like a perfect way to begin the new year.

  5. Y is for YUM!
