Southerners have a tradition -- you must eat black eyed peas and greens on New Years Day for good luck and prosperity in the next year. I have a mini-traditional menu I make on New Years Day to achieve this --
Greens with onions (I think I'll try this recipe this year)
Crook's corner Shrimp and Grits (without the meats or shrimps)
and of course a mess of Black Eyed Peas.

I'm not sure what time I'll be making it this year -- usually depends on how late I'm up the night before, and if we go to the Monterey Aquarium -- but if you'd like a bite for luck, let me know and I'll call you when it's on.

I would love some lucky, down-home, southern fare on NYD. Give me a ring!

Mmmmmmm! Just name the time! And oh gosh, Crook's Corner grits, unk! So glad I tried those out, and it was amusing to be in a restaurant where everyone was ordering and eating the same dish, I don't think I saw anyone eating another other than shrimp and grits :)
