My family and I really don't care for black eyed peas, but I will make a small pot for luck for the New Year along with cabbage (rolls) for money.

In our family, it was always saurkraut.

And no. I will not eat any of it, as I have not enjoyed it in the 30 years of existing.

I never even heard of this tradition until a couple of years ago. The person who told me about them shuddered and said "They taste like DIRT!" so I never experimented.

It's always been black eye peas seasoned with ham. But then, I'm a yankee raised in the south.

It was never anything in particular at our house but the in-laws always served pork and sauerkraut.

Black eyed peas flavored with bacon and salt joe, cooked in chicken broth with onions, celery, garlic, probably throw in some Worcestershire later if it tastes like it needs it. I've never had them taste like dirt. Aren't people's taste buds interesting?

Collards instead of cabbage as the greens for money luck.

Ham or pork steak, depending on my mood, to go with, and cornbread on the side.

We usually have them on NYD, but not every year. I personally do not like them at all, but growing up my mom always insisted I take one bite for luck. I've always said I thought they tasted like dirt too. Other than black eyed peas, we don't do anything special food wise for NYD.I just made a big pot of red beans a couple of days ago, so I really don't want to make a pot of peas tomorrow. So, while I was grocery shopping today, I picked up a can of black eyed peas with jalapenos. I'm making a pot roast in the crock pot tomorrow, and I will probably just warm up the can of peas so we can eat a few. We need some good luck.

Coffee, tamales and blackeyed peas. I have that every New Year's Day.

Happy New Year, CD'ers.
