Archena,
it's already been the new year for the past 15 hours. It doesn't feel any different but for some revellers, the longer the day, the better they feel.

Parden my ignorance, but am I supposed to know what this is or is it confined to Americans?

Neill - It's not your bad. The pea's are just the hot thing going now ( I think). In my day, it was Sabbath, Uriah Heep, or Deep Purple - times have changed :eek:

YouTube - Black Eyed Peas - Shut Up

Obviously a favourite of Archena.

Um, no, Les, that's not it. Here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black-eyed_pea

It's a Southern tradition - but it has been exported so you find it elsewhere as well. Sorry, I forget not everyone knows what it is - it's ubiquitous here. Attachment 16795

It's supposed to be good luck - for me it's just a good excuse to eat black-eyed peas!
I soaked mine last night and put 'em in the crockpot this morning. Threw in the ham bone from Christmas for added flavor.

I love both kinds of "black eyed peas" :) But a lot of people know the dish commonly served in the south on New Year's Day as "hoppin John". I don't know why. Nor do I know why one should eat them on New Year's Day. Just one of those things.

Wow - I was way off on that one. I thought you were referring to the New Years eve concert they had last night in Vegas. I guess I shouldn't post at one in the morning after a party. :o

Although not my cup of tea Les, I think I'll prefer your version than the beans.
At least the women are something nice to look at!

I just learned of the black eye pea tradition this year, and didn't get the pea's to cook.. maybe next year (or maybe next week, those beans look good to me..)

We have been reading Michael Pollen's books about the modern food manufacturing system. His short story, or the upshot is, that if Grandma or Great grandma wouldn't recognize it as food, it may not be food. So I try to experiment with recipe's from a 70 year old cook book we have on the shelf. This time it is an oat muffin for breakfast, came out great!

It isn't black eye pea's, but it isn't 70 degree's out either...

Happy New Year everybody

( and dang those Buckeye's form Ohio - played a better football game than our local team the Oregon Ducks... and won the Rose Bowl..)
