Well, today starts a new year. I wish for you all good health and may it be the best year and all good things in 2020. This week I’m going to do some I never heard of, but I’m going to try. Did you do your black eyed peas, greens, side meats and cornbread for New Year’s Day for your good luck?  


1 pound ground beef

1 and 1/4 cups chopped onions

1 cup chopped green peppers

2 - 16 ounce cans black eyed peas drained and slightly chopped

3/4 t salt

1/2 t pepper

Cook the ground beef, onions and green peppers over medium heat until meat brown and crumbled. Drain. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer 30 minutes. Makes six servings.


1 ounce plain low fat yogurt

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1 T grated cucumber

1 T grated green pepper

1 T grated onion

1/4 t salt

1/8 t pepper

Combine all and mix well. Cover and chill 2 to 3 hours. Then spoon over baked potatoes. Makes 1 1/2 cups. 


They say its going to be getting cold, so stay warm and Happy New Year. Like I say live, laugh and love, and remember to spend time with family and friends. God bless you all.
