Sherri's Story

When growing up, we always had this meal to bring in the new year. Cooked greens represents economic fortune, black-eyed peas represents luck & pork represents wealth and prosperity. I'm not too superstitious, however I've had this meal on every New Years Day since I can remember. This year starts the 2nd chapter of my life... new beginnings full of wonderful and exciting adventures! WOW, this year I'll turn the big 50 and it will be my 30th wedding annivesary. I've got so much to be thankful for and I thank God for leading me to the best recipe club in world! Cooking with passion, sw:)
