black eyed peas!

Our New Years Day dinner included the traditional Black Eyed Peas! 😀

We ordered takeout from one of our favorites, Salvador Molly’s. If you’ve been reading for a while , you know we love it!

We started with the cheese fritters. Always so good.

Jason had the Louisiana King Jambalaya, with a heat level of 11. (Why not just make 10 louder?)

It was HOT.

He loved it.

I had the Bayou Crunch Catfish, with rice + black eyed peas, roasted sweet potato and garlic spinach. So good.

We love Molly’s – not only is everything fabulous, they have many gluten free menu options, like everything we had for dinner! Gotta love that.

Hope you’re having a great Sunday – we’re having lunch with my Dad, then getting ready to get back to normal schedules!

What’s your Sunday looking like? Is it back to regular life tomorrow?

I think my Sunday is going to involve one more day of lounging in sweatpants on the couch…Monday is coming too quickly.

The food looks great! Is it strange that I’ve never had catfish or black eyed peas? Maybe I need to put that on my 2011 bucket list.

DOOO it. especially the catfish – pretty darn good (at least at Molly’s!).

All of that grub looks terrific!

I am just trying to get some motivation today to do something. It’s rainy and icky out but have plans to go to brunch with a friend and just relax after that.

any day that starts with BRUNCH is a good day… 😉

Ugh I don’t even want to think about normal schedules tomorrow. Going to be painful I think. Today is going to be super productive for me – but I will be remaining in pjs!

ah, in pajama ANY day cannot be bad. 😉

What a yummy meal! Billy and I didn’t leave the couch yesterday for more than a few minutes. It was a glorious lazy day with snacks and old movies…and some football. I’m off to meet my niece and my sister at the park. It’s chilly out there but plenty of sunshine. I could use the Vitamin D. Hope y’all are having a relaxing day. xo

Today, I’m making cabbage rolls and hitting up the grocery store with my friend. Business as usual!


12 spabettie January 2, 2011 at 3:29 pm

Mmm, cabbage rolls! I’m hoping to see them later?? :)

We don’t really have any traditional NY food, but I love reading about others’ :)


16 spabettie January 2, 2011 at 3:27 pm

I think this is the first time we’ve done black eyed peas for New Years… Hmm, I hope it works! 😉


17 Jennifer @ shesafitchick January 2, 2011 at 1:19 pm

I can honestly say I have never had black eyed peas! Nor will I be returning to real life tomorrow, I don’t start my new job until the 19th so I still have time of! :)


18 spabettie January 2, 2011 at 3:26 pm

ENJOY your time!! :)


19 S @ January 2, 2011 at 2:35 pm

Hooray for habitual and happy take-out! I’ve only ever had black eyed peas in soup… this actually made my stomach growl!

I’m back to real life as of yesterday. It’s not SO bad… :)


20 spabettie January 2, 2011 at 3:26 pm

this is most definitely our favorite take out. 😀 as far as “real life”, I’m actually looking forward to some structure again!!

Your food looks fab! Yum—I could go for some of all of that right now (well maybe not the heat level of 11—that would just make me cry).

I just began reading your blog, and I’m really looking forward to reading more.

Happy New Year!



22 spabettie January 2, 2011 at 3:25 pm

yep – I cannot do the high heat levels, but Jason loves them. their food is ALWAYS fabulous.

Thank you so much for reading, and even more for stopping to say hello! 😀


23 hihorosie January 2, 2011 at 3:19 pm

oh my word that food looks good!


24 spabettie January 2, 2011 at 3:24 pm

we LOVE this place… I don’t post about it every time we eat there, because I’d probably have to think about changing the name to spaMOLLIE. 😉


25 MarathonVal January 2, 2011 at 3:21 pm

My Sunday has involved not watching one, not two, but THREE movies and massive amounts of TV. Totally indulgent I know, but it’s been great! Hope your day was a good one!


26 spabettie January 2, 2011 at 3:22 pm

those days are necessary every now and then… we had one yesterday!! 😀


27 Kris | January 2, 2011 at 4:12 pm

Yummm!!! What a great take out place you have there! This looks like some really good eats you have there!!

Sunday’s are always a day Ryan and I spend together, however today I have been meeting with my sister for the bakery stuff. We did a lot of bakery hopping today to check out the other products! how fun!

Have a great night doll!



28 Erin January 2, 2011 at 7:20 pm

I’m back to the real world tomorrow and I’m going kickin’ and screamin’! 😉

Looks delish. I need to get my hands on some black eyed peas!
