    We have blackeyed peas on New Year's Day, have since I was a child. Over the years we have also added boiled cabbage as another side dish. That came from my MIL. This year the adults ate prime rib for meat and the kids and those that do not like rare meat at grilled chicken.

    I am from Texas and we have always had black eyed peas and cabbage, not mixed together. They are for luck and prosperity in the new year.

    Raised in the mid-west, we do our black-eyed peas and spinach greens. I cheat a bit, I boil the dry black-edyed peas in chicken broth. I boil the water, vinegar (cup of each) and cup of sugar til its a rolling boil. Shut off the heat and I put 4 packages of baby spinach in to wilt. Then we can eat it with a smile 'cause its good. Thanks everyone for sharing your traditions.

    I just started this tradition a couple years ago. My parents were from Nebraska and Iowa and I guess they did not do this. I used the 16 bean soup that you buy in the dried bean section (yes, it has black-eyed peas). I grabbed the ham bone from Christmas and put that in to cook, then removed it and put in diced ham to finish off. I also made corn bread and coleslaw. My oldest son came over and we both enjoyed it.

    Yuck! No Thanks. Sorry. Split pea soup or pinto beans and rice over those any day!
