Have my black eyed peas in the pot - had them soak all night long. also tossed in the ham bone. Now to sit for a few hours and smell them - love it. Then the cornbread will get made only  have some sliced tomatoes as a  go with - cannot beat it. Good eating!!

 

Hope his is a great year for one and all. Sure miss you here Bev but you have a great time in Florida.

We cooked the peas Monday, collard greens yesterday and will do the cornbread today!  Lots of ham in the peas.

 

I am not fond of the smell of any of this cooking, so we got ahead of it this year!

 

Happy New Year and much prosperity and happiness to all!

Black eyed peas w/chunks of ham, rice, cornbread, greens, the traditional fare!

 

Oh, and King crab legs w/butter, left from last night, can't let those babies go to waste, LOL!

It is an odd layout but allows you to adjust the size - we just do the small one because it is just the two of us.  Sorry things are not in perfect alignment, but I think you can see what goes with which sized cooker.  I put the the chicken in (I cut it up into chunks) and pour the slurry/sauce over it.  I make the rice first, remove it & save on the side, then cook the Bourbon Chicken & serve it over the rice.  I have even been known to make extra slurry/sauce in a sauce pan because we realy like it.  Hope you enjoy!

I'd like some Chinese carryout. Isn't that a common meal for the new year? However since we are staying in to watch the Rose Bowl, we'll have a variety of snacks centering on salsa and corn chips.
