We're celebrating our anniversary a day late and are going out to Bardo Edibles + Elixirs for dinner tonight. We'll be sitting at the food bar where we can watch the chefs prepare everything. Should be yummy

A variety of "Southern" peas. ~ Their hulls are purple, and their 'eyes' are pink. .....not black.. as in black-eyed peas. Unlike black eyed peas, they are primarily, most always eaten fresh (not dried) Their flavor is very mild...not as 'earthy' as a black-eyed pea. They, and others are staples on Southern tables.....

Roasted chicken seasoned with rosemary and thyme. Hassleback potatoes with a slice of cheese, onion, garlic, and a dot of butter in each of the "slots" wrapped in foil and roasted with the chicken.

They were very good and we had zero leftovers!

Oh my....so many of these dinners posted make me want to go out and buy the ingredients and make them!

I've been busy working in the yard much of the day, so I'm just keeping it simple and had a steamed artichoke with garlic and lemon butter. Probably will have some fruit and wheat crackers a little later in the evening.

I'm new here, and have looked through a few of the past daily dinner threads to try to get a feel for things, and don't see a whole lot of pictures - so hope I am not going against any rules here by *trying* to post one. lol. It's also kind of a test to see if I've figured out how to include a pic.

Please, someone let me know if there is a better place for pics.

Happy cooking!

Had mango daiquiris. Ho hum, not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Too lazy to defrost something, so we just put out cheeses and cold cuts and pickles and breads.

Thanks Uncle Bob. Ya learn something new everyday.
Black eyed peas have always seemed mild to me. Now I need to go in search of these new fangled critters that you speak of. Black eyed peas are a New Years tradition for us. And you have to leave one on your plate for good luck in the coming year.

Oh, Uncle Bob, I love purple hull peas. Now you have me wanting some. Thankfully, they're not hard to come by here.

For tonight's meal we had chicken cacciatore, wilted cucumbers, steamed yellow squash with butter and salt, iced tea and homemade blackberry cobbler for dessert.

The green pepper in the chicken dish, the cucumbers and the yellow squash are all results of some of Glenn's son's garden's bounty. The blackberries for the cobbler came from our vines. Yum!

Love this time of the year.
