Grilled sausage.....and maybe some good luck

Grilled up some Polish sausage and put in the"crock pot" with some kraut.
Also made up some "Hoppin' John". Kind of a wierd combination but from what I've heard if eaten on New Years day you will have good luck throughout the year.
There was alot of different recipes for it so I wasn't sure which to choose.
I used blackeyed peas, tomatoes, green pepper, onion, a bit of celery,cooked bacon & rice. I put a little Tabasco sauce in my helping.
Maybe one of our Southern members can enlighten me if this was true Hoppin' John.

From me to all of you I wish a happy and lucky New Year





A few "snow people" my sweetie and I constructed. (She did most of the work ) We were out of carrots.

Bigwheel I'd say 90 percent of the recipes I found called for the illegal 'maters

Nick......just the middle section

Griff.......I wish the best of luck to you

Ok I have one Southwestern opinion.
How about another?
One recipe I stumbled across called for Spam (Lite) (What in the hell could they do to Spam to make it Lite? )

Well you apparently hanging out in the North of the Mason Dixon recipe section. I have heard rumors of folks who got lynched for putting tomaters in the Hoppin John. Spam is some kinda Hiwayan thing. Less you from Hiwaya I wouldnt pay it no mind. Now Tomaters is perfectly legal in Texas Caviar. Person just got to be careful on the nomenclature to avoid the neck tie party's. Also don't get caught stealing pigs in Arkansas. Even though they cant play footballs they take hawg stealing purty serious. Uncle by marriage from PA learnt that lesson the hard way. He the brother to the one who came down here to eat calf fries and the bull drug him to death.

Looked great Puff. I made Hoppin John for the guys at work yesterday using some leftover smoked turkey. They loved it. Its a tradition around here to have Pork, sourkrout and hoppin john on NYD. I also disagree with BW, all the recipies I have for Hoppin John have maters in it. Wouldnt eat it any other way.

The food looks great Puff, maters & all in the HJ. Now it's been awhile since I've done a snow person but I thought they had carrots for a nose?
