It is a tradition on New Years Day to eat black eyed peas. Eating them is supposed to bring you good luck in the coming year. I eat them every year, not wanting to jinx myself. Last year, I made a big pot of black eyed peas with ham, and served them with corn bread. Whether they bring good luck or not, they are deliscious and sooo good for you.
Happy New Year. Eat some black eyed peas and bring us all some luck. We sure need it.
