It's the LAST day of the year! Good-bye 2008.
Growing up my family always celebrated the New Years holiday by making black-eyed peas and greens. The premise is to bring you good fortune in the new year; black-eyed peas are for good luck/prosperity and greens (any kind really) are for money. Guess what I'm eating tonight!
Here's a yummy recipe I found at NYTimes.com: New Year’s Black-Eyed Peas Salad and one to go with it Spicy Collard Greens.
