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...

    That pizza looks good!! What is used for the cheese on it? I am trying to quite eating dairy, cause i am allergic to it. But i don't like your reg vegan cheese at the grocery store unless its gotten better in the last so many years...

    Have you tried the vegan queso from the PPK? I love that on pizza, much better than the vegan cheese we can get in England.

    I love the idea of eating on the last and first day in the same meal. I had Hottie Black-eyed peas and Greens (AFR) and messy rice (Veganomicon) for a late dinner on the 31st and figured that I would still be digesting it in the new year, so it's all good.

Kiki is precious. She looks about the same size as Bishop.

    Maybe I should have had a more expensive pizza on New Year's Eve - I stopped and got a Hot 'n Ready from Little Caesars and had a stomach ache all New Year's Day. Glad you enjoyed yours!

    Vegan pizza- yummy! I've heard that black-eyed peas are good luck, but have never had one myself. Never been a pea person ;) Happy New Year!
