We’re three short days away from starting a new year. Whether you have crazy plans for New Year’s Eve or are hitting the hay early so you can get a jump start on 2019, you’ll want to enjoy the first day of the year in a leisurely fashion. Raise a toast to the new year with a tasty Bloody Mary, let a pot of chili simmer in the Crockpot for the day, and don’t forget the black-eyed peas! We can use all the good luck we can get.
Here’s a tasty menu to launch into 2019 on a delicious note. Bon appetit!
Your New Year’s Day Menu
Raise a toast to the new year with a delicious Bloody Mary. This recipe, which we’ve had in our recipe archives for a while, comes to us from the folks at Prime 108, the in-house restaurant at Nashville’s Union Station Hotel. It’s tried-and-true — a keeper to always have at the ready. The Prime 108 folks call it the “perfect Bloody Mary,” and we tend to agree. Get the recipe HERE.
If you’re looking for the perfect ‘fix it and forget it’ recipe to enjoy on New Year’s Day, this is it. Wrap up the first day of the new year with a belly full of classic chili. It’s easy to pull together, and the flavor is fabulous! Find the recipe HERE.
No bowl of chili should go unaccompanied, so whip up a batch of this Mexican cornbread, and your stomach will thank you. Serve it on the side, or place it atop your bowl of chili. It’s super easy to make, and the flavor is amazing. Get the recipe HERE.
Lest we enter the new year without the best luck we can muster, black-eyed peas are a must! Incorporate these luck-laden legumes with this Hoppin’ John recipe. Even non-BEP fans (like SB Cofounder Liza Graves) love this! Get the complete recipe HERE.
If you prefer to get your black-eyed peas fix in the form of soup, we have you covered. This Superstitious Soup recipe is a delightful blend of ingredients that you’ll want to make all year long. Find the recipe HERE.
Enjoy the last days of an amazing 2018 holiday season, and look forward to a stellar 2019! Happy holidays!
