Annual New Year's Day Dinner

Hi too all of you! I thought I would share with you the meal that hubby and I every New Year's day, it has been come our annual meal now for probably over 10 years!

Shown is Hoppin' John, smoked mustard green (from a can) and from scratch cornbread muffins. Oh my, this stuff is so good and hubby always comments about how we should have it more than once a year and it is a big plate of comfort food at it's best!

When I make my Hoppin' John, I just use canned black-eyed peas, it make it really quick and easy to put together, the part that takes the longest is cooking the bacon and cooking the rice. The recipe for the cornbread is on the side of my Quaker cornmeal, so easy too.

Well, if any of you would like the recipe for Hoppin' John, just leave me a comment and I will be glad to add it to this post!

Hope you have a great day in the kitchen! Mary
