Last night was all about dinner. It had been a long time since I had this combination--ham, blackeyed peas, turnip greens, and macaroni and cheese. The mac and cheese is gone and rarely eaten with this dinner. Now it is time to bake sweet potatoes. Soon I will also have my New Year blackeyed peas for good luck.
Last night, I managed to eat a whole log of goat cheese with crackers. The log had been covered in blueberries and came from Publix. It was a splurge for the night. There were chips but no pimiento and cheese since I could not get to the grocery store. The cheese went well with crackers, of course.
Blackeyed peas were $1.52/lb at Walmart. That seems like an exorbitant price! Of course, I did not have to pay that price because I have bags of the peas bought on sale earlier last year.
As I was choosing crackers, I found Wheat Thins, Lightly Salted. The lightly salted crackers had something like 40 mg sodium while the Original Wheat Thins had something like 180 mg. The taste did not fight with the goat cheese and blueberry. I only buy Wheat Thins about three times a year, but these will be my choice next time. Have you had them?
Last night was verrrry quiet around here. There were no neighbors illegally shooting fireworks! I did not hear any legal fireworks. I wonder if a legal fireworks display was at Smith Lake.
Back to the Rose Bowl Parade!
Did you have company or any sort of festivities on NYE? Have you tried the Lightly Salted Wheat Thins? Do you eat blackeyed peas for good luck on the first day of the year?
