Hi Rosemary:

Down here in my part of South Carolina we eat the following on New Year's Day:

Hog Jowl (I prefer smoked- fried)    For Health

Collard Greens                       For Green Backs ($)

Blackeye Peas                        For Change ($)

Corn Bread  (corn pone)              Forgot what that is for but sho is
                                     good with the other stuff

Hope that helps!


The South Will Rise Again!
