Happy 2016! It’s the beginning of a new year, and that means many things…the school year is partway over, I am counting the hours until my children return to school, it is NAPO GO month, and there are 365 days ahead of me to reach the goals I am setting for the year.
I am always trying to find foods to go along with each holiday and occasion we celebrate. I had read a few years ago that it was good luck to eat black-eyed peas for New Years. I found this Hoppin” John recipe from Simply Recipes that was mostly free of the things we can not eat. I left out the green peppers and Cajun seasoning, no Nightshades. I also used a can of black-eyed peas and just warmed them through instead of cooking it for an hour. I served it along with a beef roast and roasted root vegetables. It was a great meal to start off the new year.
