The first time I went to Ohio with a former lady friend to visit her family, it was over the Christmas holidays and we were there on New Years Day. It had never occured to me beforehand that black-eyed peas are NOT something which can be commonly found outside of the Southern states. Else I would have taken a "survival can" for the said emergency!

I panicked! I had ALWAYS eaten some black-eyed peas (with cornbread and greens and chow-chow) on New Years Day..even if just a spoonful! To NOT do so would be something akin to calling a coke a soda! They ate sauerkraut and German sausage as their custom (which is fine and I love it...but not on NYD for a Texas boy).

Well, we left to drive back to Texas that afternoon and when we crossed the metaphorical "Mason-Dixon line" (can't actually remember whether it was in Kentucky or Arkansas or Oklahoma) as the day was ending, I found an open restaurant. Went in and ordered some black-eyed peas "to go". And managed a few bites before the clock struck midnight...
That could be called ?????you made it in time though...

I never heard of this tradition until I moved to Texas (from the west coast).

I don't bother with it, I don't love black eyed peas and my husband hates them.

I don't like black-eyed peas and I was raised in the Northeast so I continue the tradition of eating pork on New Year's, LOL. However, I Texanized it by barbecuing the pork and nixing the sauerkraut!

I went to my Moms today for dinner, she cooked black-eyed peas and ham, collard greens, sweet potato casserole, and cornbread. Can't get no better than that.

Default Will you have black eyed peas tomorrow?

very southern part of new year meal and I just saw Ree Drummond's recipe. I'm not feeling it right now but may change by tomorrow.
