Happy New Year

Starting the New Year with traditional black eye peas.
We didn't have cornbread with ours today.   I fixed toast in the oven in butter with extra sharp cheese on top.
Cornbread served with black eyes for most represents  gold.  I didn't have cornbread today so our gold was golden melted cheese on baked toast.
We ate I am sure more that 365 peas for good luck,  For wealth, I put in stewed tomatoes.  Ham pieces for flavor.

Sorry -  the cheese toast was eaten up before I took a picture and that's the truth.

Hope everyone has a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!!


  1. Happy New Year to you. I hope that 2017 is an awesome year for you --and I wish you all of the good health and happiness in the world...

    We are having our Black Eyes tomorrow --since my son and his bride-to-be here for a couple of days. I make a big casserole (Fresh Black Eyed Peas, Rice, ham, kielbasa, onion, green peppers, seasonings) which is called HOPPIN' JOHN... We'll have cornbread with ours --but the melted cheese on toast sounds awesome.


  2. Happy New Year, wishing you a wonderful 2017.
