Day 1–Welcoming in the New Year with Local Eats

Happy New Year!

We made it through Day 1 of our family journey and enjoyed some great eats. After a 6 mile hike at Umstead Park, we enjoyed a traditional southern New Year supper of the following:

  • Locally produced collard greens
  • Locally produced, antibiotic free, hormone free bacon (cooked with the collards)
  • Organic black-eyed peas
  • Organic rice
  • Homemade chicken stock
  • Locally produced corn meal, eggs and milk which was turned into yummy cornbread

The supper cost a total of $16 and we have leftovers for two lunches this week. Tomorrow’s post will address our family budget and how we’re doing after the first grocery shopping expedition. Until then, have a happy and healthy New Year!
