Happy New Year! This is going to be a good one...I am going to make it happen!
Do you do the traditional New Year's meal? Ok, so that was kind of a silly question because I have come to realize that the meal is really not so traditional. I grew up with the southern tradition of ham, black eyed peas and collards. We did this every year with the hope of progress, money and luck! My meal has changed slightly since I am not a fan of collards, oh and I don't eat ham. I do black eyed peas and steamed cabbage (toot toot). So, apparently, I just go for the money and luck! The illustrator did not grow up with this tradition, but since he likes all of these foods, it has evolved into our tradition. Luckily, the boys have discovered their love of black eyed peas (and money and luck) so the meal is a permanent tradition here now!
After discovering my love of the pressure cooker..I can have beans all the time. Since I don't eat meat and soy is a major no no...beans are a staple in my diet! I have discovered too, the more you eat (not the more you toot), your stomach gets used to them. Everyone always asks me that. I eat them all the time. Trust me, beans are the least of my stomach issues!
So, check out this easy way to make your beans today! I will share more from that meal later!
