Serve Hoppin' John and Have Good Luck All Year

December 30, 2015

On the farm, our New Year's Eve party has to include plenty of delicious snacks. We don't have many traditions that we haven't come up with as a family, but one thing that we love to include is a good luck dish called Hoppin' John. The belief is that if you start your year off eating a poor man's meal, you will have wealth the rest of the year. I'm not sure if that wealth includes money or what. We certainly haven't see that happen. Our years have included incredible family wealth though. I am a glass half full girl, but no one would deny that our family certainly has a good time together. 

I can give a nod to Hoppin' John. Who knows?
