Happy New Year!!
Did everyone eat black eyed peas today for good luck in the new year?
My parents and I headed over to our friends Bill and Shelley’s house for some good New Year eats. Bill is one heck of a cook – he made black eyed peas, collard greens, and homemade pasta with spicy sausage. Bill and Shelley just got back from a trip to Italy so Bill had to put his pasta making skills to test. He passed with flying colors in my book and was nice enough to let me take some of the raw pasta home (apparently it stores well in the freezer).Â Might have to take credit for the pasta if I serve it to company. 😉
Ok, now it’s time to recap yesterday’s happenings starting with:
Breakfast (of course)
Quite the massive combo, I know, but trust me it hits the spot.
Mmmmm. Doesn’t get much better than roasted vegetables. Until you add goat cheese and balsamic vinegar reduction. 🙂
Mom and Dad spent the fist half of the day in Huntsville picking up furniture for the townhouse (!!!) and somewhere along the way Mom bought a harness for Sophie. We put it on her and she would.not.move.for.anything. She completely forgot how to walk as soon as it was on. It was actually pretty hilarious. After a few minutes I started to feel bad for her and had to take it off.
The day finally started to get productive after I ate the other half of my banana + Justin’s maple almond butter for an afternoon snack. Fuel was needed in order to accomplish the task I was about to take on…
As if I was going to stop there…
Speaking of the new year, my parents and I both had some of our friends over for football and appetizers.
For my dinner (if you could even call it that) I started with the photo above and then picked at the appetizer table later on. That muffaletta was highlight of the night’s eats. Thank goodness for leftovers!
That was majority of the NYE crew. We all had a laid back evening and that was a-okay with me. Only thing that would have made the night better would have been a win for LSU but I guess we’ll have to wait for next year before we see another one of those.
Hope you all enjoyed NYE and New Year’s Day!
P.S. If you haven’t eaten your black eyed peas yet today get to it!
What did you do for NYE?
