New Year's Day Dinner: Southern Style

Here's a typical Southern New Year's Day dinner that will be served all over the South this Sunday:

Yummy Baked Ham!


Collard Greens - Slurpin' Good!


Candied Yams!  (Do NOT ruin them with marshmallows!)


Blackeyed Peas!  Gotta have 'em for Good Luck all Year!


What meal is complete without Sliced Tomatoes?


Hot Cornbread right out of the oven!


And, of course, Iced Tea with Lemon!

Ya'll Come!

How do you prepare your black-eyed peas, AngelMay?

AngelMay said...

You just boil them till they are tender. Be sure to add some pieces of ham - or ham hock - or bacon for flavor (or vegans could use bacos). Also, before serving, I chop up fresh raw onion and sprinkle on top. Yummy!!!

Sandra Leigh said...

Thank you. I can do that. Now, to remember to buy some black-eyed peas tomorrow! Heh. The verification word is "readdat".

Ooh seems that you make a big deal of New Year's Day... it's more a 'recovery' day here spent nursing hangovers.

AngelMay said...

Good luck to everyone in the coming year - whether you eat blackeyed peas or not. But just to be safe.... you better eat 'em! ;D

I don't celebrate New Year's Eve or New Year's Day, but for a meal like that, I'd make an exception!

You're making my mouth water!

AngelMay said...

Janice! Come on over! :)

Fox: We don't actually "celebrate" either. Mostly just stay home - especially New Year's Eve. I figure no celebrating imbiber will be able to run over me if I'm sitting in my own living room curled up with a good book and a soft blankie.

Also, our meal will not be that elaborate. I'll have some of the dishes I've shown, but since I've been diagnosed pre-diabetic I have to watch what I eat so my dinner will be a toned-down version. One little piece of ham, some yams, definitely some blackeyed peas (have to have 'em for luck!). I may make cornbread - it's SO yummy...but not on my good list, I'm afraid.
