Tasty Thursday

The New Year is just about here. Of course we have to bring in 2010 with two of our favorite dishes Black Eyed Peas and Cabbage w/smoked chops

Did you know that many parts of the U.S. celebrate the new year by consuming black-eyed peas. They are usually cooked with some type ham, we use sausage. Black-eyed peas have been considered good luck in many cultures. The hog, and thus its meat, is considered lucky because it symbolizes prosperity. Cabbage is another "good luck" vegetable that is consumed on New Year's Day by many. Cabbage leaves are also considered a sign of prosperity, being representative of paper currency.
