Nothing I do brings me good luck/better year..... Think I need new traditions
Well, now she's decided we're having salmon and salad, with the black-eyed peas, instead of pork. OK, all's good. I'm going to grill it.
I assume that black eyed peas is a southern thing?
Yeah, I think so. I've never thought about it. My father's family came to the US in the early 1700's from England, as indentured servants, working on farms in what is now Kentucky. I still have distant family there but now have relatives spread across Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. I don't live in the south or midwest, now, but I still carry the tradition on.
My mother's family, is German, and moved to western Kansas in the 1870's. They don't seem to have any new year's traditions, at least none that she can remember.
My wife's family is Scandinavian, and they don't have a lot of traditions either. I don't know if they lost them in the last 100 years, or if they never had them. I'll have to ask my mother-in-law.
Put some bacon in it!!!
