New Year’s Day

Traditional New Year’s Day meal for us is black-eyed peas and cornbread. Turnip greens, celery stuffed with cheese, and red onion are a bonus. Pass the pepper sauce, please. In my book nothing could be better than buttermilk with that. Sweet tea or coffee is  for those not so inclined. When I can move again, we will have peach pie and fresh hot coffee. I’ll take mine black. Happy New Year.

    Oh yes, green onions.

  2. This looks like one wonderful, traditional feast. That tureen of turnip greens looks absolutely mouth-watering, and the mention of peach pie made me long to join you.

    May the black-eyed peas bring you and yours fortune in the coming year!

    By the way, my mom *loves* her cornbread dunked in a glass of buttermilk, and in the late spring and summer, a long, fresh and piquant green onion needs to be added to the mix 🙂

    We have enjoyed using those dishes.

    Right. You google black-eyed peas and come up with a band instead of something to eat.

    It’s a southern thing. 🙂

  6. I had never heard of black eyed peas for New Years Day until I heard someone on TV mention it, then I saw a few bloggers talk about it. I hadn’t seen a photo, though. Yours is great, and the cornbread looks good, too.

    Happy New Year!

    I will take it all but the greens Donna, LOL. Peach pie sounds so yummy. My Dad would love you it was his favorite pie.
    We always do the sauerkraut and pork thing here.
    Looking so forward to gardening (and eating) with you in this new year.

    This looks good to me. Yummy. I can’t help smiling at your mention of black-eyed peas. It is my son’s fave group band but I think they are too noisy for my taste! Haha!.

    Yummy! We had our black eyed peas already, with ham. So now we’re good for another year. 🙂
