What Did You Put On The Table?

What did you put on the table New Years Day to eat for good luck in the coming year? A lot of people do pork and or ham with saurkraut for good luck. We did something similar. I made a big batch of German red cabbage which I like a whole lot better than saurkraut and Jack bundled up in a jacket to fight off the blowing winds while he grilled our pork chops ala Emiril Legasse on our grill. In addition I made a batch of Texas caviar with blackeye peas and black beans plus celery, green onions, red and green peppers, and chili spice. After I made it I looked at the Pioneer Woman Cooks on my blog roll and discovered her tasty recipe for Blackeyed Pea Salsa. Take a look. It looks like a great recipe to try. Also, scroll way down once more to my blogroll and find The Whistle Stop Cafe. She has posted a great looking recipe for Black Eyed Pea Soup.

Well, after several days of recovering and not cooking, I did cook a dinner for the two of us with pork chops and oven roasted root vegetables.
