Friday Feast – New Year’s Traditions
With the New Year knocking on our door, I started to think about food traditions for New Year’s Day. In my family the traditional meal was Hoppin’ John, a dish with black eyed peas, pork and rice. Eating black eyed peas is a southern tradition (I grew up in Florida), although I am sure these days it is popular across the nation. We had it in the slow cooker or on the stove warm all day, which made for great eating while watching football!
Here are some posts about the tradition:
- From about.com and includes links to recipes
- Some history in an article from the New York Times
- A recipe that I might try this year.
