Somewhat Traditioal New Year's Day Dinner

I have to say "somewhat traditional" because we didn't have greens or cabbage per se. The closest thing I had was Brussel sprouts. I called it close enough. Plus, I think I like them better. So we had the really traditional black eyed peas cooked all day long with onion and smoked hog jowl. I had mine with some Sirachi garlic chili sauce. I fried up the rest of the smoked hog jowl until it was indiscernible from bacon. We had some pork chops in the fridge so I pounded them out and made a thinner, almost wiener schnitzel chop. I had leftover drop biscuits so I went with those instead of making cornbread. Please forgive my laziness. Tanner and Chance both ate all of theirs and then had some cheesecake.
