You're not a true Southerner if you don't like Black-Eyed Peas. Not just for New Year's Day, these peas are a favorite and can be found on Southern tables year round.

Serve with rice or hot corn bread. Can be fixed with any type of meat, but bacon seems to be the best. If you can find a good ham bone, that's good to use too.
