I was all set to participate in the Southern Tradition of the Good-Luck New Year’s dish.
But my plans were derailed by an impromptu invite to dinner. Hmmm…decisions.
Fresh Chilean Sea Bass
is greater than or equal to
Collard Greens and a can of
I’ll let you do the math.
Complete No Brainer.
I’m gaga for sea bass (so good).
Good wine and good company is a treasure.
I did manage to get a taste of good luck after all.
Oh, and I had Black Eyed Peas, too.
Naturally, I made Black Eyed Pea Yummus! (Cause it’s just not hummus without chickpeas)
I’m no stranger to experimenting with hummus<–
Though I had no clue what would happen I set about my bizness.
Unlike the vibrant Kermit-Skin color of my Green Pea yummus <—-, this took on a more Miss. Piggy-like pallor. A sprinkle of paprika helped.
And like Miss Piggy, black eyed peas are known for their curvaceous figures.
This had a smoky, hearty flavor which the cumin and paprika enhanced. I enjoyed it with my favorite hummus vessel…
Another New Year’s Tradition I’m participating in is the Resolution. That pesky thing everyone’s expected to make and another way society programs us that we need to be, get, and do MORE.
Can’t we be at peace with ourselves?
Honestly? My life is one big never-ending New Years Resolution. Tomorrow is just another day in the life of.
I can’t recall a time I didn’t wake up wanting to be better, healthier – wanting to change or improve. For me? I don’t need the extra pressure of a “resolution.”
About 10 years ago I made the only one resolution I have ever kept.
My New Years Resolution
is to NOT Make New Years Resolutions.
I’m at Peace with that.
Happy New Years! ~Missy
And I’m gonna start drinking more water tomorrow…and go to bed early and…….
- Doing the resolution thing? Got any big plans? I stay in. Too many crazy drivers!
