Hoppin' John

I always have Hoppin' John (black eyed peas) for New Years Day dinner and always will. Growing up my Grandma, who was from Oklahoma, used to serve them as a side dish. Now in my house hold they are the main dish. Hubby and I have Californiafied them to some extent. We serve them over brown rice and top them with plain yogurt, cheddar cheese, green onion and avocado. Why is it that if you add avocado to anything it becomes a Californian?

I also made some progress on my New Years Scarf. I decided to add a bit of Knit Picks organic cotton to the Noro yarn to ad some more white to the color mix.

We ate hoppin' john, too....the kids thought they were going to die! The only think we've ever added to them is a little bit of chopped onion. I bet they would eat them topped with cheese--should have thought of that! :)
The scarf looks so lovely.
