Also traditional is collard greens, but I used to have collard greens spice. The last potful I made using smoked ham hocks and that spice mixture was the best ever. I need to see if they have some at my local Walmart. Home made collard greens and cornbread, MmMmMmM

Loved your post MA. *CLINK* back at ya. Happy New Year, lady.

*clink, clink, clink, clink*

I totally agree with Kayelle, MA. Seeing what you have found is always a highlight of my day. I appreciate the work you have done.

Zhizara, I love greens. Once, I made the BEST greens I've ever had. I wrote down the recipe and carefully placed it where I could find it. I'm still seeking that safe place. What is the Walmart spice mixture called?

Cheers to you all and Happy New Year!

It wasn't from Walmart, unfortunately, I'm just hoping since my Walmart is in New Orleans, deep in the south where we love our greens, they might have some.

I can't remember where I found it, nor the brand name but it was one of those huge containers like restaurants use.

I'm making those Posh Piggies (above) today! Bought 2 sheets of Trader Joes' ready-to-bake "Handcrafted Artisan Puff Pastry" and says "Pate Jeuilletee" on the front (huh?). Can't wait to see how they turn out...could become a tradition

Meanwhile, a New Years Celebration in Japan:
