Meal #1- Hoppin John
For our New Year's dinner, we had Hoppin' John. In the south it's traditional to eat on New Year's Day. It is thought to bring a prosperous year filled with luck. The black eyed peas (still one of my favorite legumes even with the band connotation...I hate Fergie!) are symbolic of pennies or coins. The greens (I used kale and rainbow chard) are the color of bills.
Is it cheating to post this as is, so we can get it up and running on 1/1? Can I come back and edit later? I think so. It's supposed to be rough in the beginning right?
