Bringing Good Luck to 2008
I remember my childhood, where my dad always had my mom make black eyed peas for New Years dinner. I always thought he was being a weird Texan (no offense to my friends in Texas!), but this year I decided to look into it. Rumor has it, that eating black-eyed peas and collard greens for new years is suppose to bring good luck with money in the coming year. Well, we could use all the luck in that department that we can get, so for this year's New Years dinner I made black-eyed peas over quinoa, with garlicy-kale & collard greens with tahini sauce inspired by VWAV. I added onions to my black eyed peas and squirted some Bragg's on top- my favorite way to eat them.
It's been a whirl-wind of dinners, get-togethers, and celebrations these past couple weeks. I am looking forward to getting back to normal. Hope every one had a safe and happy holiday season!
