What is your traditional New Year's Day meal?
I was born and raised in the Deep South in the United States (Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi). Even though I no longer live in that area, I still prepare the Southern traditional New Year's Day meal. This meal is suppose to bring you luck throughout the rest of the year. Why take a chance on having an unlucky year by not preparing the good luck meal of my youth?
Yesterday (New Year's Day), my menu consisted of the followng:
Black Eyed Peas (for luck)
Mustard Greens (for money)
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Fried Pork Chops
Deep Dish Apple Crumb Pie
I should be very lucky and have lots of money throughout the rest of 2010!
