Hoppin’ John is not only a staple recipe for good fortune every New Year but it’s also a pretty solid fucking meal.
Y’all ever fuck around and wrap some food with twine? Can’t explain why but somehow it just makes food taste better. Someone fund the science behind this please.
This soup is hearty enough to fight off the last bits of cold weather but the lemon and dill make this shit feel bright and ready for spring. Never cooked with barley? Well this is a solid start for your uneducated ass.
This stew is thick as fuck and tasty as hell. If you have never had a version of this Southern staple then GET THE FUCK ON IT.
For the rest of us who enjoy stuffing that WASN’T cooked in a bird’s ass, carb load up with our Sourdough Herb Stuffing. You’ll need your energy to flip the table when Nana starts in on the election.
