I didn't take pics of all of the food but we snacked on shrimp, calf fries, meatballs in cream gravy, sausages, chips, dips, crackers, cheese, fruit and veggies ( I think that was all)....while sipping on cold beer, wine, whiskey, and bubbly at midnight.
By the time I crawled under the covers the clock read 3 something.... no wonder I'm tired today!
Being tired didn't stop me from making my favorite new years day food.. hoppin' john, ham, greens and jalapeno cornbread.
I fried a few pieces of bacon.. cooked my onions, garlic and peppers in the bacon drippings..
added 2 cups of chicken broth, diced ham, red pepper flakes, thyme, oregano and basil.... then some rice.
After the rice absorbed the broth, I added a spoonfull of butter then salt and peppered the pot to taste.
Crumbled the crisp fried bacon over top.
This is how I make hoppin' john while camping... Hoppin'John
I might be sleepy but it looks like the skillet of cornbread is smiling at me...
The hoppin' john with black eyed peas for luck, greens for wealth, fried ham and jalapeno cornbread....
I have a feeling this is going to be an extra good year for me. :)
