    Just finished a dinner (Southern noon day meal) of mustard greens for money, blackeyed peas, cracklin' bread, and hogjowl for luck. According to tradition and how much I ate, I'll have lots of money and luck in the new year. A buddy of mine in north Florida says they substitute swamp cabbage for greens. How about your New Years meal for luck and money?

    I have never heard about that. At least you know when meals are. I say to meet for dinner they are talking after 6pm??? (thats SUPPER for those who's parents forgot to tell you)
    I get in "discussion" so I ask "what/when is breakfast?" (morning) "When is supper?" (evening) "So dinner MUST be at noon" (.............no its.....but thats LUNCH) (and they get a smile as if they solved something) :) So I tell them lunch is a light snack, normall @3pm if you are part of a work crew that has been going hard all day/and/or just finished a hard job.
    I didn't know folks down South were on the same page for meals. Good to know.

    We never "Do lunch" down here we eat dinner, and then around 6 in the afternoon we eat supper. You have it right. I think that lunch thing came out of California. BTW, I will come to the table if someone makes the mistake and calls me to lunch if they have homemade chicken and dumplins.

    Good idea. I was contemplating dinner tonight. I'm gonna go get some blackeyed peas, a hock, and some cabbage.

    I know what we're eating tonight!

    Collards are fine by me, but the tradition, in my family, has always been cabbage.

    I think "greens" would include mustard, collards, turnips, and possibly cabbage. I have been adheering to this meal every New Year's Day for as long as I can remember. I would hate to know how poor I would be if I had not eaten "greens" for the money. I eat 'um all the time, love 'um.

    Gonna end up with ribs for supper. I done pissed the whole family off when I told my wife and sister-in-law that I'm sick of some things that my niece and daughter have done together when I've been away, which have damaged my property on two different homes.

    Bad timing, but it happens.

    At least I get to eat tonight.

    I just had to explain this whole dinner/supper thing and explain this very meal to someone today. I woke up around 12pm and was like "Crap I'm going to be late for New Years Dinner!" and she was like "wtf you talking about its only a lil past noon." She's from ABQ. LoL

    I had Ribs for health, some colla'd greens for money, black eyed peas for good luck, and some corn and cornbread for fun.

    I completely neglected any "good luck" food this time.

    December 31, 2008, I had the traditional black-eyed peas and cornbread.
    That worked for me, but the rest of the world had a tres suckee' year.
