Happy New Year!!! Best wishes for a Great 2011 and always.
We love to start the year at our house by making dishes to celebrate our upbringing. We have traditions that have been part of our lives since birth and we make sure that they are transcended to our son. Meanwhile we also share them with all our friends. Somehow I never manage to make just a bit.
On New Year’s Day, we celebrate the South with Black Eye Peas with Ham Hocks, Turnip Greens and Corn Bread. To celebrate France and Italy, we make Lentils with Cotechino and fish. And, to celebrate life we must have Champagne.
Black eye and lentils are representing wealth, Ham and Cotechino represent health.
This year was no exception. We are thankful that our friends joined us to eat the huge pot of black eye peas and lentils we made. It was great to be all together and close the Holiday Season with great company, good food and lots of laughter.
May 2011, be a year that all your dreams, wishes and hopes come true.
A year filled with love, happiness and great memories that will last you a lifetime.
A year filled with great health and wealth.
Happy New Year!!!
