Gotta have that southern traditional new years dinner!!
Do you eat black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year's Day? This tradition may have some beginnings from the Civil War.
Some suggest the tradition dates back to the Civil War, when Union troops, especially in areas targeted by General William Tecumseh Sherman, typically stripped the countryside of all stored food, crops, and livestock, and destroyed whatever they could not carry away. At that time, Northerners considered "field peas" and field corn suitable only for animal fodder, and did not steal or destroy these humble foods.
In the Southern United States, the peas are typically cooked with a pork product for flavoring (such as bacon, ham bones, fatback, or hog jowl), diced onion, and served with a hot chili sauce or a pepper-flavored vinegar.
The traditional meal also includes collard, turnip, or mustard greens, and ham. The peas, since they swell when cooked, symbolize prosperity; the greens symbolize money; the pork, because pigs root forward when foraging, represents positive motion. Cornbread also often accompanies this meal.

Before Memorial Day barbecue.
Smoked jalapeño and cheese sausage, smoked sausage, foil potatoes on the grill cooked with Vidalia onion,drizzled with bacon grease and olive oil, cheese and bacon added after foil is opened and Bush's spicy baked beans. Oh and bacon while cooking and after.
Now that sounds like a wonderful meal!
