New Year’s Luck, Southern Style

Happy New Year! Today, we’re indulging in one last “Eating Holiday.”



On the menu:

Pork, because pigs root forward, whatever that means…Grilled porkchop for him.

Tofu, because it’s my “other white meat”…Crispy and pan-seared for her.

Greens,  for paper money….Kale, sautéed with walnut oil, onion, garlic salt and pepper.

Beans, for coins…Black-Eyed Peas with Smoked Paprika.

Cornbread, for gold…Super-Moist Cornbread.

Our lunch was enjoyed al fresco, as we are having an unseasonably warm Alabama winter day. Divine!

I ate A LOT of cornbread. Is there gold in my future?

Happy 2012, friends!
