New Year's 2012 Good Luck Dishes - Southern Favorites

Yum
When we entered the new millennium back in 2000 some of my Southern friends told me that it was very lucky to eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day because they look like coins and Collard Greens since they look like paper money.  Although these are relatively inexpensive dishes, it's said eat poor on New Year's to bring you luck and eat rich the rest of the year.   It is also traditional to eat pork with the meal because pigs root forward and symbolize progress.  Pork is also very lucky for many Eastern European and Latin countries and they make it a part of their New Year's Day as well. So I created this all in one-pot Curried Hoppin' John with Pork and Bacon to really make it extra lucky.  Serve it with the "Curried Collard Greens" and you can double your luck.

  12. Looks great, and I had no idea they were called hoppin John's! I usually get these in the years I'm in the U.S. for New Year's, my father-in-law is Texan, and some friends of his always entertain on New Year's Day. Of course there's a huge crockpot full of black-eyes peas!

  16. The Seven network is the only place to watch the Olympics on TV this year. The deal for the 2021 Games is the same one which came into effect for the 2016 Games and gives Seven the exclusive rights for Australian television audiences. Seven will broadcasting their Olympics coverage across all three of their channels – 7, 7TWO, and 7mate. However, that’s not all – if you’re keen to watch an event that is not being shown on one of Seven’s three channels, you do still have the ability to live stream it online or through the app. Olympics Game Live Stream
