Obligatory Pre New Year’s Post

The New Year is almost upon us. I enjoy New Year's Day but not for any kind of reflective feelings of accomplishment. I like what we eat that day.

For the longest time we always had ham and black-eyed peas plus assorted other veggies on New Year's Day. Eating black-eyed peas for good luck is a Southern thing and I've always respected it even when I lived far away from family. Mike and I would go so far as to buy a can of black-eyed peas and eat a spoonful on New Year's Day just so we wouldn't jinx ourselves. Weird, I know but it's hard to break the habit of a lifetime.

But the last four years we've ditched the ham dinner and instead cook a huge Mexican food feast. This idea was inspired by my grandma who was born in Mexico and makes the best cheese enchiladas and tacos. She's not as spry as she used to be so now I get to be the chief enchilada and taco maker. My cheese enchiladas aren't quite as good as hers yet but I keep plugging away. The tacos are easy so I've achieved success with those already.

But what about the black-eyed peas? Never fear. My mom found a recipe for Mexican style black-eyed peas. It's pretty good and fulfills our need for that shot of luck for the new year.
