New Year's Day menu. What's your family's traditional meal for a lucky new year?

Ours - black-eyed peas for luck, collard greens for fortune.

  1. It has more to do with how good the previous year was. If it was any good at all, then we have the left over mexican shrimp coctail that my husband makes for New Year's Eve.

    1. Black eye peas and greens (collard or mixed, which would be a combination of mustard/kale) and pork in some form...ham, pork tenderloin, chops, etc. and some fried chicken & potato salad, just because it goes with the greens & peas.

      1. Black eyed peas with cornbread

        1. Ham, fried potatoes, greens (usually mustard or kale), black-eyed peas, and cornbread.
