New Year's Day in the South

You can't always count on snow for New Year's and the selections for the bowl games can be unpredictable, but you can always count on black-eyed peas. This is a traditional recipe for Hoppin' John that I always serve with cooked mixed greens and tomato pudding. Tomato pudding is a side dish, not a dessert.
