We usually celebrate New Year’s Day with friends at the Salt Lick Barbecue, with the traditional cabbage (cole slaw) and pork (ribs), but this was my first year to have black-eyed peas. They symbolize coins, which along with collard greens to symbolize bills, are thought to bring prosperity throughout the year. We can use all the help we can get this year!
Serve with white rice.
