Get Your Blackeyed Peas Now!

New Year’s day will be a pajamas-all-day experience for me, or that is the plan. We will do our annual batch of “Hoppin’ John” which is a blackeyed pea/rice dish eaten a lot in the southern states of the USA. It is especially popular on New Year’s day because the blackeyed peas (small beans, actually) are considered good luck.

I knew a woman from Texas once. She said she had a friend who put dried blackeyes in her change purse for good financial luck. That sounds messy to me, but I definitely enjoy the food anyway and it is a great excuse to have a day designated for us to eat it.

Three years ago I posted one possible recipe for vegetarian Hoppin’ John. Maybe you would like to join me in the kitchen? Today would be the day to get your groceries, that is if you want a jammies day on the First.

Whatever you do, may you all have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2007.
