    Who ate black-eyed peas today?

    Last year was such a skanky year that I had to do something to liven up this year, so I made vegetable soup with lots of black-eyed peas. This is the first year I've done this. I do hope it works.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I did, this past year was a zinger for a lot of people. I always have blackeyed peas and cabbage on new years.
    Every new year since I could eat table food.

    Our family tradition is Split Pea Soup. I think it is from my Dutch ancestry. Left over ham from Christmas goes into it on New Years Day. Never could do the Pickled Herring thingy and, thank goodness, neither does Hubby though his family is German.

    We never did the blackeyed peas thing in our family. It was pork roast with saurkraut, mashed potatoes and usually another veggie. I'm hoping for a great new year but the past year wasn't so bad for us. I wish everyone a healthy, happy and prosperous new year.

    I fixed black eye peas with ham, fried potatoes and biscuits (canned, lol), and blue berry muffins for lunch today. Then my husband wanted pork chops and stove top dressing for supper. I started my year off on a good note, cooking twice in one day. I don't cook as much since just the two of us. lol

    I always have black eyed peas on New Years Day and invite my boys and their families. I enjoy watching them eat. LOL. I am also very blessed to be able to do so.

    Absolutely! Black eyed peas and ham and cornbread. My folks were from Texas and this was a long standing tradition. Wouldn't miss it.

    Sounds like a great combo - black eyed peas, cornbread, ham...I don't know of any new year's traditions here in New England. But at Christmas I did make a cornbread stuffing with my garden limas (frozen) and corn (frozen) and a little touch of bacon. No red pepper as one of us is allergic to bell peppers. No ham as no one but DH and I will eat it.

    What do you do with the cabbage?

    Black-eyed peas and ham - forgot the cornbread! We've never done cabbage - just the black-eyed peas are the "luck" thing around here. When our son-in-law joined us about 10 years ago he did not like peas. The rule here has always been you have to try the number equal to your age. So for the SIL my daughter counted out 21 peas - and he ate them. We didn't see them today so don't know if he ate 31 of them or not.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    I had dinner with friends. We had corned beef; side dish of black-eye peas & spinach. We also had marzipan pigs for prosperity.

    Today I had turkey/pork sausage with lots of green leafy veggies.

    Guess the tradtional foods never made it across the miles to the PNW.... I don't recall any special foods eaten for luck! Does watching certain football bowls count??? My hubby ( NOT ME), always watchs the ROSE BOWL and PARADE ! I put chirstmas stuff away and tidy my sewing room that usual is a big mess by Dec 24th...Sound familiar anyone???
    Have a great DAY!

    We had sloppy joes and low salt potato chips. Strawberries, grapes and blackberries. We have no traditions for the New Year. We do like black eyed peas, haven't had them for a few years.
    I always wish for a better year than the last. Happy New Year to all.

    I cut a head of cabbage into quarters, cut out the core. Tear the leaves apart & put into a large pot of water, salt, pepper & bacon grease to taste. Boil until tender.

    We really did eat blackeyed peas, ham, mac and cheese and cornbread. It was good and certainly a change from our usual meals. We try to eat "healthy" but it was really good!

    My family gathers at my parents house. We always have the black eyed peas, turnip greens, hog jowl and corn bread. We add other vegetables potatoes, corn, and coleslaw and meatloaf. Might not bring luck but we are never hungry.
