Special Meals for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day

Happy New Year! Haven't blogged here in a looong time but just made two delicious celebratory meals and wanted to remember them.

New year's eve: vegetarian french onion soup, apple walnut salad, plenty of champagne, and decadent desserts from feel good bakery. We ate in our dining room on my mom's china by candlelight. A great New Year's Eve.

New year's day dinner: vegetarian hoppin john, greens, and banana cornbread (just cause I had some old bananas to use up; used a scant 1/3 cup maple syrup instead of 1/2 cup the recipe calls for and they are plenty sweet enough)
