JoGail's punch

Being the second sister, she likes to do things a little different than Grace. So she wanted me to make her a different punch recipe than Grace and her friends like. (Grace likes Almost Champagne Punch.)  So after souring pinterest, I came across this and it was really, really easy and good!

Lemonade Punch
2 cups lemonade ready made mix
 4 cups water
2 regular size jugs pineapple juice
1 2liter sprite

Mix and serve!

 One of the best things I have purchased is a drink dispenser. It works great when more than just us are here and I don't want o serve soft drinks. Mine has a an ice core thingy that even keeps it cold, so I put the ingredients in the fridge, mix and it stays cold for a long time.

We made cinnamon rolls for supper tonight. I think we might have just started a New ew Year's Day tradition! Nice after eating all those peas at lunch!

Black Eyed Peas

1 bag peas, presoaked for about 8-12 hours
2 cups chopped leftover ham
2-3 stalks celery (leftover from Coy's salad), diced and sauted in a little butter
thyme seasoning
greek seasoning

Put in crockpot, cover with water and cook on high for 4-6 hours.

I kind of tweaked Emeril's hopping john recipe for this one. We really liked it. Some ate it over rice, some ate it over cornbread!
