Happy New Year!
This is a picture that goes back a long way. This was New Years Eve, 1968!
Charles had to work that night and his shift ended at 11:00 P.M.-giving him just enough time to get home and welcome in the new year with me!
As I remember, his friend and riding partner came with him and the 3 of us celebrated. :)
Tonight-I doubt if we will even be up to see the NEW YEAR!
:) We've learned it will come without our help!
In the part of the south where my husband grew up it was - and still IS - customary to have Blackeyed Peas, cooked with Hog Jowl, for the New Years Day meal! This is to bring good luck in the coming year!
~~~Hey-it works for us!~~~
We usually have a 'mess' of cooked collards or turnips or other greens and cornbread to go along with this!
I leave all this for my husband to do...He makes excellent cornbread! (I like to crumble it into a glass of cold buttermilk and eat it with a spoon!) We sometimes have ham or grilled chops, too... but maybe just hotdogs and sausages this time! It's sort of just left dangling this time. (our holiday meal-plan)
Anyway~ the new year's almost here!
Hope it will be a good one for all!
