We had our Hoppin' John but this year I cheated and did canned black-eyed peas. I also don't care for greens so I always use cabbage. My theory is that it's still green like money. I'll be making the mimosas around lunchtime. Oh, and I didn't put the dime in (I hadn't heard of that before reading it here either) because I just know one of us would either swallow it or bite down on it and break a tooth.
And if what you do on NY day is what you will do all year, then I'm right on target. Today so far I've cooked, cleaned, did laundry, cleaned the litter box, and spent time at Fort .
