- I was raised in Louisville , KY and we always ate cabbage and potatoes with sausage accompanied by black eyed peas. We have a mixed background and I'm not sure what type of tradition it is, German, Irish or maybe just plain old Southern American

New Year's Day meal
- I lived in VA and my husband lived in PA. Even though we live in NY now, we eat ham steak, made w/ Michael's very own special sauce, mashed potatoes covered w/ saurkraut, black eyed beans and greens (collards, spinach, etc). We also enjoy corn bread w/ that. However, on New Year's Eve we eat shrimp.

- Kattlynn, I was raised in the south by southern parents (NC, SC and AL) and black eyed peas and rice were a staple. It's called hoppin'johns when cooked together with spices - check any southern recipe book. All I can say is you have missed out on some wonderful southern cooking if you weren't raised on black eyed peas and rice!!:) Happy New Year !
