Hoppin John recipe - a Southern tradition to eat on New year's Day. It tastes even better the next day, so feel free to make it ahead of time and serve it Don't eat it just on New Year's Day - it's a great recipe to use all year long!
The Galley Gourmet: Black-Eyed Pea and Collard Green Soup; I can't believe that I've never made a black eyed pea soup for New Years! My mother was Southern and I've ALWAYS had black eyed peas (Hoppin' John) on New Year's Day!
