Sunday Supper {New Years Style}

Along with folks all over the South, we rang in 2012 with the traditional, albeit meager, meal of peas for luck and greens for wealth.  We’ve been cookin up this meal and enjoying it with Sister and her Mister since the first year we were married.

I repurposed the table decor from New Years Eve for the occasion.  I thought about cookin’ up those collards but just couldn’t bring myself to deconstruct the centerpiece quite yet.

Along with our hoppin john and bourbon bacon greens (my new fave recipe, though I substitute turnips), Honey grilled up his delish bourbon and brown sugar glazed pork tenderloin and we noshed on honey cornbread muffins, the Pirate’s House pecan pie (recipe here) and the sweetest tea you’ve ever wrapped your lips around.

Now, I’ve got to go get me a piece of that pie for breakfast before the boys wake up and beat me to it.  Yes, they are all still asleep.  Glory be…

  1. I'm a Southern gal myself, and I don't believe I've ever seen collards used as a centerpiece before. But they look amazing on your table! We had a very similar meal yesterday, and I'm getting ready to warm-up all those leftovers. Happy New Year!

  2. Your menu sounded perfect for a lucky year! I had to check out that greens recipe — sounds delish! Your table looks great — love the collards as centerpiece!

  3. Just discovered your blog. Oh, you have such lovely taste. Loved my tour of your home, and that New Year's meal looks delicious! I am now a follower, btw. Happy New Year.

  4. How funny that my New Year's dinner was so similar to yours and I also served dinner on my Lenox Butler's Pantry dishes along with the Waterford Champagne glasses. I have the Pottery Barn candleholders also! Your table looks beautiful…If you hop over to my site you can see the similarity!..

    I love your use of the chalkboard easel. Very nice! I love all things "Southern"

  5. Popping over from French Country Cottage's linky party! your table is devine & the food looks delicious! Your guests must have felt extra special when they arrived to see all of the effort you made for them! xoxo tracie
