New Years Day Recap

My New Year's was great (thanks for asking). We celebrated with friends by cooking a wonderful dinner together and just hanging out on the couch. The next day we started of the morning...uhhh...I mean afternoon with breakfast at Cracker Barrel then pretty much laid in bed all day. It was great - so far so good on my resolutions for 2009.

We also partook of the ritual eats of New Years day - hog jowl and black eyed peas. I have to say that we only ate about one spoonful a piece of the peas. They were terrible! A little too gritty for my taste. As you can see, the hog jowl ended up being mostly fat but we did get a few good pieces. You have to do what you have to do for good luck though!
My husband also informed me that he took pictures of his cooking for me to post on my blog haha. He included a picture of himself so you can all see he did the cooking. Isn't he cute and supportive!

Hope you all had a great start to your new year!


  1. Happy new year! He's COOKING??? He is a damn keeper.

    We eat pork and sauerkraut. It stinks, but it's good!!!

  2. I have never head of the hog jowl...where do you even buy that?

    Too funny that your hubby took pictures for your blog!

  3. Camoe over from SITS to say hi! A husband who cooks is always worth keeping around. We don't have a traditional meal for New Years. I have never heard of hog jowl, not sure I could eat it, well maybe for luck!

  4. I have never heard nor tried hog jowl - very interesting!

    Also, may I just add that your husband is very charming to take a photo for your blog!

    I'm glad to know that your days are going great in 2009!!!

  5. Happy New Year!! May all of your desires for this new year come true.


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
