Southern New Year's Meal
A Southern tradition is to eat black-eyed peas and collard greens on New Year's Day. I made the hoppin' john from Thug Kitchen this year with cornbread and collard greens. I was excited to find a cornbread recipe that called for creamed corn. It kept the cornbread moist! I made sure to get a low sodium creamed corn so the dish wouldn't taste like salt. I sauteed half of a yellow onion and some garlic, then added the greens, and let them simmer while everything else cooked. Hopefully this year is full of luck in my research and good finances (like paying off the cats' insane vet bills from last year!).
