|Black-eyed peas and kale. So where's the money?|
But a person near and dear to me grew up with this legend and, even though it obviously hasn't worked so far through many New Years together, we keep on trying.
Today I decided to play with my food a little, so plated my beans-and-greens as a little yin-yang symbol with decorative dots of hot sauce and black pepper. Hey, it could work!
How about you? Do you follow this or similar regional or cultural food practices, like Hoppin' John (which I like even less) to bring fame, fortune, good luck or other good things on the first day of the year?
