Let’s ring out this terrible year with something delicious. I am planning on seared scallops. I am starting the new year with a traditional Southern U.S. dish, Hoppin’ John. It is basically beans or black-eyed peas with rice and some sort of pork. I will be substituting in a smoked turkey sausage for the pork. As a side I am making collard greens. This dish is supposed to bring you good luck and good fortune for the year to come. After this past year we could all use some good fortune.
Happy New Year from John and me at Omnivore!
