Its sure hard to believe that 2012 is here !
Today being New years day and me being
a stickler for traditions.
Its the day to take down the trees, put away all the Christmas decorations
and the day that every since I have been born I know that there has been
Cabbage at our house growing up on New Years and I have continued it
to our house
I have to cook cabbage, potatoes, onions and corned beef which makes
a really nice dish
Growing up my mother always fixed cooked cabbage on New Years day.
When I married my husband ,he grew up with the tradition of having
black eyed peas, and hog jowl ,so for the last 23 years
I have fixed all three which has now become our tradition
All these many years and still I haven't researched why
we have these items of cabbage, hog jowl and black eyed peas
If any of you bloggers know the reason why we do this leave me a comment
also tell me what your traditions are as well .
Wishing each one a Happy New Year
