    today.  A wicked mix of black-eyed peas. onion, ham hock, a bit of rice and some secret Cajun spices.  I have made it every New Years Day for the past many years.  It is supposed to bring good luck to have black-eyed peas on New Years Day.  I had a conversation with my youngest when she got off work last night and she pointed out that if that was supposed to bring good luck, she would hate to see bad luck.  Every year since 2007 has seen some horrible disaster befall us.  

    I am going to have cold pizza today.
