    black eyed peas maybe

    cornbread not really thats sort of thanksgiving

    chitlins maybe

    cabbage no

    the luck doesn't work but for really superstitious people, they believe it does bring good luck

    Since I like beans anyway, Blackeye peas with hamhocks and cornbread. Don't care much for chitlin's except fried. Only I eat the peas on New Years day. The cabbage is for St. Pat's.

    "red-eye" black-eyed peas, greens, and cornbread.

    Corned beef.

    No chitlins or cabbage in my house.

    I've had some really, really good luck over the years.

    We'll be having Hoppin' John tomorrow. I discovered the tradition 3 years ago. And if it's good luck, it's working. 3 years and still happily married! And it's a fun tradition. Maybe I will make cornbread tomorrow.

    No. I didn't know that any food was lucky, or even unlucky (apart from poisonous stuff, obviously), and when to eat or not eat it/them.

    May not work but it sure does taste good. No, this year it will be lentels and stuffed trotter, smoked salmon, cake and prosecco.

    PS have you ever heard 'em called "blackassed" peas?

    Hoppin John. I have my own recipe. Luck I don't know, but it can't hurt.
