Happy 2013 to All!
Like most Texans, my husband, Steve, and I will be enjoying the traditional Texas (and, yes, universally Southern) New Years Dinner: Hoppin’ John. With Collard Greens and Cornbread.
For those of you who don”t know the symbolism of this tradition, here is a quick rundown:
Black Eyed Peas: coins
Collard Greens (or Cabbage): paper money
So, if you haven’t surmised by now, it’s all about the money. The more you eat, the more prosperous you’ll be in the new year.
Plus, you’ll be starting that New Years diet resolution off right.
Oh, yeah. And, since this is Texas, Pecan Pie for dessert:
OK. Well. The pie could set your diet back a little.
Enjoy! Have a great new year!
