HOPPIN' JOHN

Isn't that the cutest kitchen towel? Here is a recipe for Hoppin' John that is a little different. If you remember, I had to fight the deer last summer for the few bags of blackeyed peas they left behind. I've saved them for just this moment. I did hear that you also had to have collard greens with them, so I had to run out and buy some. I'll just layer them in with the other ingredients. Type in Hoppin' John in upper left corner for the recipe. They are sure to bring good luck in the new year.

  2. Well, I must say your Hoppin John looks delish! I only ate a teaspoon of Mom's when I was a kid, guess I should give it another try! I made some Texas Caviar for us to have as an appetizer tomorrow. Thanks for visiting me at GrannyMountain this year! Wishing you a happy healthy 2010!
