A Southern Tradition…

Did you welcome in the New Year by eating a traditional meal of cabbage and black-eyed peas?  We went with the traditional meal and we added a side of good ol’  Texas comfort food, smothered steak.  So according to the old wives tale we are almost guaranteed that 2013 will be filled with comfort, luck and prosperity…Just to clarify

Comfort – contented well-being, satisfying or enjoyable experience

Luck – a force that brings good fortune, the events or circumstances that operate for or against an individual

Prosperity the condition of being successful or thriving; especially economic well-being

  1. We stopped at a casino buffet as is traditional after our barrier island camping trip, so we did have black eyed peas! And cabbage! Yay for this fun and delicious New Year tradition!

  2. I did make Hoppin’ John for Good Luck!
    Not sure it’s working yet. 😉
