2019 – Year to be healthy and wealthy!

LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas

WEATHER: Overcast and cool – 50s

They say eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day gives you good luck and good health. If so, George got a double dose today.

First, he went to a community get-together where he ate some black-eyed peas and some cornbread. I stayed home, as I have a bit of a cold, and didn’t want to be out in the elements.

Then, for dinner, I made Hoppin’ John, a dish with black-eyed peas, rice, sauted celery and peppers, bacon, and herbs. It was really tasty, especially due to the bacon that George had grilled earlier in the day.

Our Texan neigbors brought us over some cooked cabbage, and told us that in Texas eating cabbage on New Year’s Day brings one wealth in the coming year. So, we are all set for good luck, good health, and wealth.
