New Years Day Meal

So we all know that the classic New Years Day meal is black eyed peas, cabbage and corn bread. I don’t stray from this much and didn’t today. I started my black eyed peas in my brand new Crock Pot last night (Christmas present from my MIL). All I add to them is water, seasoning to taste and onions. Today, I made my cabbage and cornbread. I must say that the cabbage came out soooo delicious, and I only eat cabbage once a year.

This was my preperation


Cabbage, corn meal, butter sauteing in my brand new skillet (Christmas present from my husband), cabbage boiling and cabbage sauteing – yes, I did my cabbage both ways. I have only ever boiled cabbage so I wanted to try something new this year. Wait until you see it! Mmmm

Black eyed peas in the crock pot, corn meal in the pans ready to go into the oven, more cabbage sauteing and yes, I used Jiffy cornmeal – the only and the best!!! =)

And here is the finished products!! Yummmyyyyy!! The bottom left photo is my sauteed cabbage! OMG!! It was sooooo good. Here, let me show you a bigger picture.

Doesn’t that look just delicious to you??

How I made it:

Sauteed some butter in my skillet (love it!!)

Added my spices (salt, pepper, Tony’s, etc..)

Added my cabbage

Added some more spices

Sauteed the cabbage for a while

Added some onions and peppers and one special ingredient that my great-grandmother added to her cabbage to give it that extra taste. =)

MMM MMM MMM – it was sooo delish!!


So what did you have for your New Years Dinner? Do you have a special tradition that you celebrate for the New Year?



Peppered Pork Tenderloin

My husband’s stepfather’s mother (did ya catch that?) gave us a Peppered Pork Tenderloin for Christmas. It was pre-cooked so I only had to warm it up. Tonight was the first night that I have had any energy since Christmas night – I have been sick on my back for almost a week now. Ugh. So today I was able to get up and do some things today, one of them being cook dinner. So, I made the Peppered Pork Tenderloin, Mac N Cheese (not homemade) and Ranch Style Beans. Nothing great, but this is it.


Terrible photo, sorry! But guess what, I have the black eyed peas in the Crock Pot for tomorrow!!




To the Mart I go

I am headed to the Mart! Going to get toothbrushes (I have a $10 off coupon), puppy chow and dogs Christmas gifts (last 2 I plan on getting with overage!). Sure hope I can do it and spend less than $15!

P.S. – the husband is with me so I may not make it out for $15 or less…grrrr


On my way to major $$

I started couponing about 9 months or so ago. I quickly hit a snag with all of the other things that I had going on at the time (see previous post). Well, I have decided that I need to get back into it. I learned a LOT on my own by just doing my research and finding other blogs/websites that are all about couponing and reading a lot.

Well, I was recently lucky enough to meet Mrs. Lisa, who is an Extreme Couponer! She will be famous soon! =P

After much talk and MUCH work, I got Mrs. Lisa here to Leesville to teach a class on couponing!   We had a successful turnout and a great class! Well!!! Mrs. Lisa told us where she got her AH-MAZING coupon binder and of course, you know it, I went home and immediately ordered a binder and the inserts!

Guess what?! My binder came in today! I sat down and put ALL of my coupons in it (with my husband’s help – he finished clipping what I hadn’t finished clipping yet). I organized the binder into two seperate areas – food and non-food. I further organized those 2 areas into multiple other areas! Anywho! I love it!!! The photo above is a my brand new coupon binder!!

I got the binder from and it is very sturdy, zips up all around, has an external pocket, a handle AND THE BEST PART – a strap!! Easy to carry and won’t spill any coupons out (unless I forget to zip it, which is quite possible!).

I must say that it was probably the best buy for my binder!!


Well, I guess that I think that I do not have enough to do already.

Nah, but if I do not post regularly, all of the above is why!

This blog is going to be all about my new interest – couponing and one of my favorite things to do – cooking!!
