A very Happy New Year to All!

Happy New Year! May Your Days Be Blessed!

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And ne'er brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
We'll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run aboot the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit'
Sin auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And here's a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o' thine,
We'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.

Black-Eye Pea Salsa... Southern-Style!

We've been making this for several years now. It's fairly inexpensive, quick, and tastes just great.



3 cans Mexican-style diced tomatoes (drained)

2 cans Black-eye Peas (drained)

1 small can green chiles (drained)

1/2 small onion, diced

1 Jalapeno, veined, seeded, and diced.

1 lime



Place all ingredients in a large plastic or glass bowl (NOT METAL!), Squeeze lime over mixture. Mix well, cover, and allow to sit overnight in refrigerator until ready to serve with chips.



As an alternative to black-eye peas, use black beans instead.
