New Year Tradition

"Eat poor on New Year's,
and eat fat the rest of the year."

We have *Friemily, who are from Texas.
When they lived up here, they always served
 Black Eyed Peas on January 1st.

Our Friemily has moved back to Texas but we still continue the tradition.

*(Friemily is a term we use to describe
friends, who we have adopted and 
now are part of our family)

Happy New Year


  1. I learned a new word from you today, and I think it is a good word. Hope you all have a special time together. They are fortunate to get to visit in your home.

  2. This Texas girl grew up with that and didn't pass down that tradition at all...no peas here!
    Happy New Year!!!

  3. I noticed lots of black eyed peas out in the grocery this week! They were beside all the pork and kraut, which we do. I'm adding kielbasi to it this year...which is what my mom always did. Saw a recipe on pinterest for the combination. Traditions are fun, aren't they? :)

  4. I still use this term - because of your last post on this..

    It's so perfect.

    Happy New Year - my friend! Happy New Year!

  5. That looks so yummy, and a tradition that I know well being from Texas. I'm so glad you like it as well. Happy New Year Christine and Tom!

  6. My husband's family in Tennessee eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day. But us up north eat pork roast. A lot of people have the pork and sauerkraut, but we never did it in my family. Have fun and happy new year!

  7. Am hoping that pot of black eyed peas will bring good fortune in 2014 . . .

  8. Happy New Year! Very cute word... I think anyone would want to be in that category, as a friend and family, we desire to be apart of a home, life and love!
    Blessings, Roxy

  9. We never ate black eyed peas growing up. We are not southern natives, after all. It wasn't until my sisters married some southern boys that we included the tradition.
