new years boiled dinner

a recipe by

I make this every New Years Day, along with black eyed peas, cornbread and desert. Remember, cabbage for cash (green), carrots for coins,potatoes to stay fed, black eyed peas for luck and anything that rises doubles it! I'm not superstitious, it is just a lot of fun. And it's tasty! This recipe can be made on the stove or Crock pot. I make mine in a crock pot so I can watch Twilight Zone all day!
