All righty then. I've eaten my black-eyed peas for good luck in the coming year, put in some time on the treadmill today, and am ready to take on whatever the New Year brings!

Hope everyone had a safe and beauteous holiday and you all enjoy an equally Happy 2009!

Sounds like you're more than ready! Here's to a wonderful 2009 for us all :)

By the way, we had our black-eyed peas too. For greens, the hubby had mustard greens and I had cabbage. Turnip and mustard greens always remind me of stewed grass, LOL!

At least you got on your treadmill! I got on yesterday but am staying away from it until Monday. Then I hope to get back into a routine :)

Enjoy the rest of the long holiday weekend Marianne!

Happy New Year to you and Lew! I hope that 2009 brings good health and new treasures to you both.

Hi Marriane, I got tagged and have to send it along. Details are on my blog!
I've never prepared a New Years Dinner, what all is supposed to be served, and what is the significance? Sounds really interesting!

We had our black-eyed peas, too! Hmm...haven't hit the treadmill though.

Hope your 2009 brings you loads of joy and contentment!

Stacy - I hear you about the stewed grass!! Turnip, mustard, kale - not on my "gotta have it" list!

Laurie - In some parts of the country, but especially the South, it's considered good luck to consume black-eyed peas on New Years Day. Pork and cabbage or greens of some kind are the typical accompaniments.

Tradition has it that they each symbolize luck, wealth, or prosperity so a meal of all three theoretically promises you a rockin' year ahead!
