New Year’s Day Traditions

As a Minnesotan with southern roots, New Year’s Day to me means rice, beans and greens. I was raised on the stuff thanks to my Grandma Pollard, an 89 year old Georgia native.

I wasn’t able to make it back home to enjoy my family’s annual feast. Fortunately, I know a guy who whips up a scrumptious bowl of tradition.

Thanks Kirk & Liz.
