Happy last week of 2014! How was your holiday week? Mine was pretty good despite the family stuff I had going on...lots of rest, too many sweets, and time spent with friends. Thanks for all of the kind words and prayers that you sent to me, it really means so much... This week is always hard because technically it's still the holidays, but we have to get back into our normal routines. But at least we will have a mid-week break for New Year's to ease us back into reality. Growing up we always had the same traditional New Year's Day dinner: pork of some sorts, collards, black-eyed peas, and cornbread. And I of course still make it because superstitions or not, I don't want to risk it! There are always leftovers with this kind of dinner and I have the best idea for a whole other meal. Farmer's Market Pork and Collard Green Hash is my new obsession for a seasonal hash and you have to make it!
When I went on the Maker's Route road trip, we stayed in the most adorable town called McMinnville in Oregon. We ate breakfast at the same little cafe every morning and the first morning there we all partook in their Heritage Pork Hash, which consisted of tender pork, braised greens, a farm fresh egg, all over potatoes. It was to die for.
