At the inception of a new year, the tables of the American South are adorned with the traditional meal of black-eyed peas, cabbage, and cornbread. Depending on where you are, the peas may have okra in them, and the cabbage may become collard greens. The meat is usually smoked and salted pork, with a bone-in ham being the general favorite. The greens are thought to be a reference to the money that folds, the cornbread is said to imitate gold, but the peas are said to be lucky.
