With Christmas behind us, the house is somewhat quiet again.  I felt like I was on a cooking marathon with all my kids and spouses in town staying with us, as for some reason, every meal is eagerly anticipated!  Now, for New Years!  There are food traditions, especially in the south, when it comes to our New Year’s Day meal selection.  Black-eyed peas and cabbage top the list of “must have” for luck and wealth—but who has time and energy to prepare a big meal, again?  So, you will absolutely love my six ingredient New Years Day One-Pot Meal from Too Hot in the Kitchen, and literally you don’t have to cook anything; just layer it all together in one pot.  This meaty hearty dish resembles rice dressing with all the components of New Year’s Day tradition.  If your family doesn’t like cabbage, don’t tell them as the cabbage almost evaporates and just adds flavor to this family-pleasing one meal dish.   Remember to rinse and drain your black-eyed peas or any beans to lower the sodium before adding to the recipe.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
