TNew Year's Day Dinner

This is a meal to bring Good Luck & fortune in the coming year. Black eyed peas and rice, corn bread, mustard greens and pork.

Traditional southern meal with every item having a meaning. Most say that the pork is to keep us humble, the greens represent folded money, the corn bread gold and the rest is for Good Luck. Enjoy and Have a Happy New Year!

 

 

These flavorful peas are cooked in the slow cooker and seasoned with fire-roasted tomatoes, chili powder, and bacon.

Ingredients:

·         1 1/2 pounds fresh black-eyed peas, rinsed, drained

·         8 to 12 ounces bacon, diced

·         1 1/2 cups chopped onion

·         1 cup chopped red and green bell pepper

·         1/2 cup chopped celery

·         1 clove garlic, minced

·         1 1/2 cups water

·         1 can (approx. 14.5 ounces) fire-roasted diced tomatoes, or chili-seasoned tomatoes

·         1 teaspoon chili powder

·         1 teaspoon salt

·         1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

·         1/2 teaspoon dried leaf oregano

Preparation:

Put rinsed fresh black-eyed peas in a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker.

Cook bacon in a large skillet until softened; add onions, peppers, and celery and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender. Stir in garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Add the vegetable mixture to the slow cooker along with the water. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours, or until peas are tender. Add remaining ingredients and continue cooking for 1 to 2 hours longer.

Serves 6 to 8.
