Wesley's Lucky New Year's Menu

Wesley's Lucky New Year's Menu

Hello everyone. Merry Christmas today is Wednesday and it’s finally over! Don’t get me wrong I love presents. Got some great diamond earrings. I’ve been a very good girl you know. Did anyone catch me cooking on TV last Friday morning (Fox Networks Rocks) I think I did a fabulous job and the crew loved my food. I’ve been sick but I’ve learned that the wine helps when you can’t breathe. Tomorrow my family is going to a baseball tournament in Florida. It should be fun. We’ll be there over the New Year. In any event, this will be my last newsletter of the year because I will not get back until January 2nd. I will then rush to my office to (hopefully) come up with something creative!

This meal will be buffet or cocktail partyish instead of the traditional meal. Let’s spice things up a little Southern style. And remember the hair of the dog that bit you if you have any wounds. My personal favorite: Wesley’s Bloody Mary Mix and lots-o-vodka. Virgins are okay too.

Brunswick Stew

Atlanta Brisket

Sauté the onion and celery in butter until tender. Stir in mushrooms and set aside. Cook turnip greens according to package directions and drain well. Combine them with the lemon rind in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. In the top of a double boiler, combine sautéed vegetables, pureed turnip greens, soup, cheese Worcestershire and hot pepper sauce, stirring until mixture is well blended and heated. Serve hot with corn chips.

Spicy Black-eyed Pea Dip:

2 stalks celery, finely chopped

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce, to taste

1/2 cup ketchup

2 15-oz cans black-eyed peas

1 clove garlic, pressed

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 cup bacon drippings

3 tablespoons flour

In a medium saucepan, combine bell pepper, celery, onion, black pepper, hot pepper sauce, ketchup, salt, bouillon cubes, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Over low heat, cook and stir until boiling and the cubes have dissolved completely. Add peas, tomatoes, garlic, and sugar and simmer 30 minutes. Combine bacon drippings with flour and stir into peas. Cook 10 minutes more. Adjust seasonings. Stir well and serve hot with corn chips.

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 cups white shoepeg corn

1 1/2 cups small butter beans

1 tablespoon firmly packed dark brown sugar

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon Tabasco

Soak the brisket in the Coke overnight. Brown the beef in a Dutch oven, preferably cast iron over high heat, with just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat and add sliced onions and soup mix, bay leaves and an inch or so of water. Cook, covered on low heat checking every 20 minutes and adding water if needed. It should cook about 2 hours. Slice and serve with mixture as gravy.

Bake 15 minutes. While this is baking, heat caramels and milk, stirring constantly until caramels are melted. Spread caramels on brownies and top with remaining half of batter. Bake 30 minutes. Cool and cut.
