Now, Frannie! If you really want to have good luck in the new year, you have to eat pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day. Didn't your mom tell you that????? And, if you don't want to cook it, yourself, just come to my house. There's always room for one more! Laughing

Here in the south it is Black-eyed peas that we eat for good luck. Yum. lol I only eat them once a year and I only eat one!

Laughing Laughing I take it you're not a huge fan of Black/Eyed Peas.
I love them and that's what we will be having Jan. 1, 2008...I don't cook the dried ones, I don't like them. I cook the frozen ones...cook them with bits of ham, sauteed celery and green onions...salt and a tsp of sugar...
Bake a pan of jalepeno cornbread..Papa and I will half a baked potato and that will be our NY's day lunch...

So, how's your luck been aTmMom? That one yearly black-eyed pea must be workin' for ya. Laughing

I've heard about that southern tradition, but I don't think I've ever had a black-eyed pea in my life and wouldn't know one if it jumped up and tapped me on the nose. Are they anything like navy beans? I live on the Ohio/Kentucky border, and beans and cornbread are big around here . . . just not on New Year's Day.

Your lunch sounds good, Char! What time should we be there? Laughing

And, Frannie, it's the sauerkraut/cabbage that I've always heard was lucky. I guess it's my Pennsylvania Dutch (German) background. I just happen to enjoy it with pork roast, but it's good with smoked sausage or even hot dogs, if you'd prefer. This would be a good meal to make in your crockpot.

Inky here's a few black-eyed pea receipes.

They are a good source of protein...I don't care for pinto beans, but I love black eyed peas. The fresh ones picked straight from a veg. garden are delicious...There's nothing that taste any better than fresh vegetables.

OMG! I am glad you reminded me of the blackeyed pea's. I grew up in Michigan, but my parents are from Texas so we have followed this tradition forever. When I lived in Florida, I went out to buy black eyed pea's and they were sold out the day before. Shocked I thought my family were the only people that did this.

Thanks for posting that link, Char! I've learned a whole lot about black eyed peas because of you. I don't think my Kroger ever has fresh black eyed peas. As much as I prowl up and down the produce section, I know I'd have noticed them. I have seen them in the dried bean area, though. I just didn't know what I was looking at. Laughing

Poking around at the link you posted, I found a couple of recipes that sound good -- one for Hoppin' John and the other for Creole Black Eyed Peas. I might have to pick up a bag of the dried and give them a try. Do you think their good luck works better for southerners than it would here in Ohio???? I wonder how they'd taste with a side of kraut. Ewwww. That sure doesn't sound good to me. Very Happy

Back to liquid refreshments.. Laughing

When my daughter was here, she went out shopping on her own and brought back the best damn Bloody Mary mix I've ever had. I always make my own, but this stuff is fantastic.

It's made in Oklahoma by a husband and wife who started out as asparagus farmers. Go to the link and scroll down...on the left is a link for the Bloody Mary mix.

ETA: I just found the recipe page too.. lol

Speaking of me AND liquid refreshments...I hate tomato juice so a bloody mary is out of the question but that leaves more for you! Razz

Hubby went to the liquor store today and found a perfect solution for our New Years Celebration. He bought two little bottles of Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante. They are the cutest thing. They are bigger than airline bottles but smaller than small bottles and they even have a cork. Looks like Frannie is going to get drunky like a skunky on New Years Eve. YaY! I plan on PWD, BOO YAH!

OH and the best thing was that each bottle only cost $3.49 each. I am such a cheap date. Embarassed Shocked Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

I love bloody Mary's and will look for that mix. However, the grandkids and I are having sparkling white grape juice for New Year's Eve. We always have a slumber party that night, while the moms and dads go do their thing. It's kinda become a tradition. Grape juice out of a plastic wine glass . . . it just doesn't get any better than that. Razz
