We aren't really a black eyed pea family. We don't eat them normally, but if you eat them on New Years day they bring you luck for the upcoming year. Ok...whatever, I'll eat them. I don't like them though. So this year I made them salsa style with some things I had in the pantry. I looked for a recipe online, but didn't have all the ingredients. So I just flew by the seat of my pants. And I love the flavor this little mix produced.
1 can black eyed peas...drained
1 can mexi corn w/black beans...drained
2 tbs chopped cilantro
2 tbs chopped green onion
1tbs pickled jalapenos
2 tbs chopped green bell pepper
mix it all up and chill.
we have been scooping it with Frito's scoops.
my favorite new years day meat...ham! Gary cooked this bad boy this morning, and honey glazed it. It danced in my mouth...made me sing...ha! I love ham. The kids were like baby birds getting samples as dad was slicing it. And speaking of the kids....
Our munchkins are checking their email. in their pj's.
It is 38 degrees here, and we don't have any plans so far for today, so we are in pj's.
Just hanging out eating.
Awesomeness ~ a great way to start 2011.
Last night Gary and I hung out and watched a movie. It was a low key NYE. I am good with it. The kids were sleeping by 8pm so Gary and I had all night to eat nachos, watch TV and ring in the new year. I was worried I wouldn't make it 'til midnight, but I did.
Happy New Year!!
