Happy New Year!

Happy New Year - a day late!  Yesterday we had the pleasure of being invited to our friends for a nice New Year's Day meal...  I love all the dishes that Steph makes.... especially her homemade buns - maybe one day she will show me how to make them but for now just as long as I get them, I'm good!

During the meal her daughter asked why she makes ham for dinner so Steph asked me to explain...  I always remember a saying that my grandmother had that went something like this "If you eat ham on the first day of the year, you will be living off the fat of the land... if you eat chicken, you'll be scratching all year".
Anyone else hear this before??? 

Here are some of the yummy dishes...

Ambrosia Salad
I'm not even sure what this is called-some kind of layered salad
The "fat"
Cheesy Potatoes
Baked Butter Beans with Bacon (this one is mine)

My favorite!

I ate two! 

And a tasty beverage....Spumante

Hope you have a great 2013!
