Not only did I skip the cabbage and/or greens traditionally eaten on New Year’s Day, I didn’t have blackeyed peas, either. This means I’ll be short of money, luck, and friends in 2011. Oh, well–I’ll take my chances. My first meal of 2011, a nontraditional t-bone steak (rubbed with Dizzy Pig’s Cow Lick steak seasoning, cooked on the Mini Green Egg) & frites, was tastier than cabbage & blackeyed peas by a mile.
Happy New Year, whether or not you upheld New Year’s food traditions. Steel yourself: King Cake season starts in just 5 days.
