Along with folks all over the South, we rang in 2012 with the traditional, albeit meager, meal of peas for luck and greens for wealth. We've been cookin up this meal and enjoying it with Sister and her Mister since the first year we were married.
New Years Eve for the occasion. I thought about cookin' up those collards but just couldn't bring myself to deconstruct the centerpiece quite yet.
bourbon bacon greens (my new fave recipe, though I substitute turnips), Honey grilled up his delish bourbon and brown sugar glazed pork tenderloin and we noshed on honey cornbread muffins, the Pirate's House pecan pie (recipe here) and the sweetest tea you've ever wrapped your lips around.
