Spiced Ancient Grain Hot Cereal

I know that 2015 officially started on January 1 (obviously) but, I don’t mentally start the year until the first Monday of the New Year.

Arroz con Gandules (Rice and Pigeon Peas)

We arrived in Florida on Friday night to spend Christmas with OB’s family.  While having lunch, there was mention that there may not be arroz con gandules for Christmas Eve dinner.
