Even though I am neither southern or superstitious we still have black eyed peas every New Year’s day. It started 11 years ago when I went to my boyfriend/soon to be husband’s family for a lunch on New Year’s day. (By soon to be, I mean we got married 2 days later) It is now a tradition for our little family to have them.
I soaked the dry beans overnight and cooked them up this afternoon. I asked my friend Angela for her hoppin’ John recipe but you can find a million different recipes for it. It’s good and we can eat off of it for a couple of days.
Happy New Year and Good Luck to you in 2012!
