I spent most of yesterday driving down to Louisiana for the wedding of my best friend.  She's getting married Saturday, but I have to get fitted for my suit since I am one of the groomsmen.  I could not leave until after lunch though, so I didn't arrive until late. 

I had to wait until after lunch because we have a New Year's traditional lunch with the family each year.  We cooked hog jowls (frying them like bacon) for wisdom throughout the year, collards and turnips (some family members like collards and some like turnips, so we cook both) for prosperity in 2013, black-eyed peas for luck, and chicken and dumplings because they are so damn good. Oh, and I almost forgot, we made cracklin' cornbread to go with the greens and peas.

By the way, I plan to have as much fun as I can while in New Orleans this weekend for the wedding.
