Meal Plan for January 2-8

Did y’all have a happy New Year’s eve and day? Mine was quiet. The old days of partying on New year’s eve and waking up with a hangover are long gone.

My exciting weekend consisted  watching some old Twilight Zone episodes on the SciFi channel. They have a Twilight Zone marathon every New Year and 4th of July and I usually watch them. And I got all the Christmas packed away.

I have to make a correction on last week’s menu. I completely forgot about New Years day. So I moved what I planned for that Sunday on to this coming Sunday,

It’s long been a tradition in my family (and most families in the southern US) to have black eyed peas for luck on New Year’s day and collard greens.

It was too late to find any decent collards but I did have a bag of black eyed peas stashed away in my pantry and a ham steak in my freezer so that was dinner for New Year’s day.

And even though I should have posted the recipe for black eyed peas last week, I’ll post it this week instead. This is a yummy, easy cheap meal you can make anytime.

Black Eyed Peas
1 bag of dry black eyed peas
1 ham steak or ham hock
salt and pepper
can of chicken broth
Pour the black eyed peas in a colander and rinse them. Put into your crock pot and pour a can of chicken broth over them. Cut up ham into small pieces and add to the crock pot. Add enough water to cover everything. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook on high for 3-4 hours, then turn to low and cook another hour or two. Occasionally add water if needed.
