My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

New Years Food

Blog Prompt: It is New Year’s Day. What are some of the special foods that you eat in order to bring in the new year?

The main things that we eat on New Year’s Day are black eyed peas and collard greens. I think the peas symbolize coins and the greens symbolize paper money. I’m not thrilled with eating either one of these but my husband insists that we eat them so it won’t kill me. Of course I would hate for us to lose lots of money and be blamed for it so that is why I eat them.

I haven't had black eyed peas in a long time. Not one of my favorites either. Haven't tried collard greens. Looks like you well protected for the New Year.
