Kyle has posted lots of pics of our food from yesterday (and a separate entry for dessert). The yummiest (most fattening, most heart unhealthy) food of the year. I know greens are to bring prosperity (money) in the new year, and black-eyed peas are for luck. I’ve also heard that the peas are for coins and sweet potatoes are for gold. What’s the pork do for us, though? And is there a reason for the cornbread other than to sop up the pot likker?
It’s fun having so many different people at one time — everyone from mothers and siblings to neighbors to long lost friends moved away but home for the holidays. I just wish my house would expand two or three times a year to be big enough for everyone to be comfortable.
Here are some of the recipes.
