Black-eyed Peas with Smoked Ham Hocks

Menu for Good Luck - Black-eyed Peas, Cornbread and Love

New Year’s Day was always an open house for family and friends and the table was laden with other pleasures as well.

Oh, and there were pies, pecan pies. A generous slice of pecan pie is the best chow-chow chaser.
