Don't Forget to Eat Your Peas!

Our Black-Eyed Peas 

are on the stove cooking.

So we'll be ready for 

New Year's Day.

Don't forgot to 

eat at least a spoonful.

Click here for our recipe featured

on last year's New Year's Day post.

Served with a nice salad 

and fresh out of the oven cornbread, 

this meal is real comfort food for the 1st.

As you can see, it's an exciting 

New Year's Eve here tonight.

May 2013 be a year 

that brings peace in our world.

Here's to 

Good Health ~ Joy ~ Good Times!

I wish each one of you a

Very Happy New Year!

Yummy! We'll have peas, greens, and cornbread tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Yes, I did make the burlap wreath. It is burlap twisted in and out of a wire form from Michaels.

Happy New Year!

Your black eyed peas look sooo good. I'm saving the recipe to make the next time I make them. Love the addition of tomatoes and the Rotel. I'll bet that really makes the dish. We'll have Georgia caviar(black eyed pea salad) turnip greens,pork roast and corn bread.
Hope your New Year is filled with good health and good times,too.

One of the things I'm most thankful for is that I'm not from the south so I don't have to eat black eyed peas!
Hope they bring you good luck in the new year.
All the best.

Johanna said...

Dear Sarah,
I wish you and your a happy new year. In Germany we need to eat Sauerkraut on Silvester to have money in the new year. I hope it will work.
Best greetings, Johanna

Mary said...

Happy New Year to you & Sadie, Sarah! Our New Year's Eve was just as exciting :) I'm late getting my serving of Black Eyed Peas but hope to have some in a salad this week!

Rettabug said...

Happy New Year, Sarah & your sweet Chef! All your end of the year foods look so yummy...I'll say it again...you are SO LUCKY he likes to cook!

Loved seeing all your wonderful collections & treasures in the past year. You really have a great knack for finding the unique items, wherever you go.

Have a Blessed & Healthy New Year, Hon,

Alison @ The Polohouse said...

Still smiling over that sweet picture of Sadie! I cannot believe it, but I have never had black-eyed peas, Sarah.
I am not a pea fan and only eat a few types of beans so I am sorry to say I have never had them! Your first photo makes it look amazing though!

Just thought of you this morning when I opened a page of the new Country Living and a home featured is owned by a brunette woman with the same exact name as YOURS!

Thinking of you and wishing you a very happy new year.


The French Hutch said...

Your recipe sounds delicious Sarah. I love peas and I usually cook for New Year's Day. I make an adjustment to my soup pot to to add peas for this very special day. Your recipe sure serves up pretty!
Hope your day was nice, we had rain all day.......

Ahh, you made the black-eyed peas. You surely will have good luck this year. I will check out your recipe now. Happy New Year blessings, dear Sarah!

Laurie Ritchey said...

Sarah, we ate our black eyed peas, but they didn't look as yummy as yours. Happy New Year! laurie

Olive said...

We love black eyed peas. I made them, collards, pork tender loin, and corn bread. Wishing you a blessed new year, Olive

bj said...

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes....I sure had a nice one. I put all my photos on my desktop and a day later, the computer just died. Now, I can't get the photos off...I deleted them off my phone, OF COURSE.:(

Then,on top of all this...we didn't eat our peas until TODAY, the 2nd, so we will have one day of BAD LUCK...OH DEAR.....

Libby said...

I can't wait to try the Blackeyed Pea Soup even though I missed the 1st. In the South, Blackeyed Peas and cornbread are always appropriate, aren't they.

Kathleen said...

Please, don't make me eat peas, or beans! Just jelly beans! :)

Haddock said...

The peas are literally looking at me:-)
Happy New Year.

The Tablescaper said...
