Can. Not. Get. Enough…of this Marble Rye from one of local bakeries. And, what better to slather on a toasted piece of this gorgeousness than some homemade pimento cheese. My version has fresh jalapeños. Especially yummy. Ridiculously simple. Enjoy!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! In Texas, eating black-eyed peas to ring in the new year is supposed to bring good luck & prosperity. My mom used to put on a hot pot of these yummies & we would drop by for a bowl full on New Years Day. Since we are having friends over for dinner, I thought why not incorporate them into an appetizer ~ so, here ya go! BLACK-EYED PEA SALSA DIP, chocked full of  tomatoes, fresh corn, red onion, avocado, cilantro & black-eyed peas. Cheers to a fab new year, y’all!
