I got my black-eyed peas, collard greens, sausage (instead of ham) and I'll be picking up some bread after I work out tonight.  Not cornbread though.

I bought boneless pork chops at the grocery store this morning. I already had potatoes for mashed potatoes and a can of sauerkraut, so I'll have my pork and sauerkraut with mashed potatoes.

Mmm, sounds good!  I may make up a batch of my Mom's navy beans and ham to start the New Year with a bang!  ;D

I'm going all New Age-y with a chick pea and parsley soup. The parsley is from a pot in my sunroom...first year I've ever been able to grow parsley inside. Rounding that out is a pot roast that's been simmering since this morning, with onions, bay leaves (from sunroom) and black fungi (Chinese mushrooms, in other words). Challah made by my Jew-ish daughter. Gingerbread butterscotch cookies with Crown Royal.

May 2019 be better for us all.

I was with you, until here:P  Don't you know gingerbread butterscotch calls for something light - like a vin santo?  :laugh:

Miso-glazed Chilean sea bass with baby bok choi, black sesame rice cake and lobster tail.

See, if I'd been there, I would have had the risotto and spilled my wine.  Twice a tradition does make, methinks.   :laugh:

Happy New Year, Paul!!
