New Year's Brunch

Confession: I didn’t eat black eyed peas and collards yesterday.  (And my 1st picture of 2009 is blurry.  Drat.)  But I did have a damn good brunch!  I spent New Year’s Eve in Birmingham with the poet’s family (let me just say, wow, it was an interesting night in a weird southern town–I’m a city girl, I’ll admit) and on New Year’s morning (err…noonish) we cooked up a big family brunch.  The menu included eggs and grits and bacon, but I whipped up some vegan french toast (baked, not fried), hashbrowns, and soysage.  All-in-all, a great way to greet the New Year!  2009…I think I’m ready for you?

I’m going to post a Boston round-up next, so hold your hats for that!

    Happy new year, Jes! Thanks for all your bloggy support–it’s nice getting to know you and I’m excited to continue this coming year.

  15. Uh oh, no black-eyed peas? You’re doomed now!

    Just kidding, I’ve never had those on New Years and I’m still fine. The baked French toast looks delicious — what a great way to start the new year in a way that’s both healthy and yummy!

    Although the picture is a bit blurry, the brunch still looks great. I am sure first blurry pictures of a new year bring lots of luck!
