Money, Money, Money

The New Year is coming —and what we eat is symbolic of what we want to happen during the year. So here are 2 recipes that I hope brings you lots of MONEY! It might not make you happy but it does help!

First:

Raisins and CeleryMay you have a Raise In Salary.
The picture shows to add peanut butter— I never thought of that — but it bet its yummy!

Second:
I learned this from my Mother in Laws’s neighbor and my sister. Black Eyed Peas is symbolic of prosperity.

Avocado and Black Eyed Peas Salsa

2 Ripe avocados diced
1/2 C chopped green onion
1/2 C chopped cilantro
1 C tomatoes dices
11 oz can corn drained
15 oz can of black eyed peas rinsed and drained

DRESSING:
1/4 C red wine vinigar
1/4 olive oil
1 t ground cumin
1/2 t minced garlic
salt and pepper

Mix all the ingredients together then add dressing let marinate for 1 hour — or like me just serve!

Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year!
