First Meal of the Year…

It was not today’s lunch or I would be starving!

So, this is a recap post about our New Year’s Day lunch. Good food yummy yummy!

Let me introduce you to our dishes. The mandatory black eye peas for good luck…

For which I prepared this onion-parsley salsa, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Collard greens and rutabagas. Smoky picture, it was hot!

And yellow rice. Shall I serve you?

My husband plate.

And mine.

Enjoyed with some leftover champagne, it was not bad, not bad at all.

My kind of food.

I didn’t post the recipes here because they’re all very simple to prepare (at least, in my conception). But if you’re interested in any of these, just let me know in the comments section and I’ll be glad to update this post.

  1. I’ll take your husband’s plate. =) What colors and good fortune!

  2. DELICIOUS! I make Hoppin’ John every year, so I’m glad to see a fellow lover of black-eyed peas. Your rice is beautiful, and it’s got me craving some. ;)
