As far back as I can remember my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother - always
served black eyed peas on New Years day. I was always told this would bring you good luck in the coming year.
The little girls have been delivered to their other grandmother and I have black eyed peas simmering. Chopped onions and ham added to them.
Also I have been craving turnip greens. There is nothing in the stores that look like the turnip greens I grow ( I will be sure to put many cartons in the freezer next fall). So I purchased collard greens. They are full of vitamins and so good for you. They are simmering with garlic and onions.
Will make a small pan of corn bread, glass of sweet tea and slice of lemon ice box pie, and this will be my good luck dinner for this new day.
