New Year Eating

It's the New Year. Happy 2007. What are the foods you prepare and or eat on New Year's Day? It has long been an African American tradition to eat black-eyed peas (represents good luck) and greens of some kind (represents money). I will be going to my mother's for peas and greens, along with roasted hen, dressing, and sweet potato pie.
Okay, don't talk about me too bad.

Also, chitterlings, chittlins. Once a year, we eat them. It has been a tradition and I know what chitterlings are but I like them. We clean them thoroughly, cook them and enjoy it for one day of the year. Well, actually, my mother and I are the only ones who eat them. Sometimes our former pastor and his wife, natives of Jamaica, come for New Year's Dinner and he will eat them.
