Eat For The New Year

New Year's food traditions vary, but they usually include green leafy stuff (to symbolize folding money), gold or disk-shaped stuff (to symbolize coins), and pork (because pigs root forward). We'll be having cabbage, black-eyed peas and ham, which are the local variety of this tradition.

Here's how to make black-eyed peas edible.

Edible Black-Eyed Peas
  • 1 can black-eyed peas
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • salt to taste
Combine and heat. Cook until most but not all of the liquid is gone. Serve with cornbread. If you have any green onions, dice them and add them.

Black-eyed peas are really good; trust me!
