Today was a day for taking down Christmas and starting the new year off right. We had blackeyed peas, cabbage and spiral ham for lunch. All these things are marked by southerners knowledge that blackeyed peas bring luck, cabbage brings money and the poor pig isn’t lucky at all. Also, I made another southern staple called fried hot water cornbread. We can fry anything. And, furthermore, make it taste good.

Hope your day was a good time for you as well.
