PP, I really like the idea of a can of Rotel....I'll add that. Yumm...
Normally I cook the frozen ones, they are quicker. Fresh is best but cant always get them.

My Grandma always had BEP and cabbage for new years. I like collard greens but like you prefer mustard greens.

This looks yummy! I had to look up Rotel though. We have canned Mexican tomatoes that are similar here. I'll use that :)

Happy New Year!!

We were taught that we had to leave 1 pea on our plates so we'd have good luck for the rest of the year.
