Last and First
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
We went to Buddy's for dinner last night because I wanted the last thing I ate in 2012 and the first thing in 2013 to be expensive vegan pizza. I started my leftover slice at 30 seconds to midnight to guarantee that I would legitimately be eating pizza when the day rolled over.
Even though I can't think of any better way to guarantee good luck than PIZZA, I still made Hoppin' John with collards in the slow cooker overnight. Weirdly, Dave, a Southerner, had never heard of the tradition of eating blackeyed peas for good luck on New Year's morning. Whatever. It was tasty.
And, just for fun, here's Kiki enjoying the bone STLW27 and my Pop gave her for Christmas:
Wow, Dave is really pale right now...
