It’s the last day of 2018! Did you know that it is a Southern tradition to eat black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day? The tradition signifies growth and prosperity for the next year. I remember my grandmother, who grew up in North Carolina, would prepared the dish on NYE when I was younger.
My friend John (of Michael Ellis Photos) and Chef Charles Robinson Jr. (of The Black Skillet Kitchen) teamed up to showcase a delicious twist on the traditional dish! Ya’ll have seen John’s awesome photography work featured before (he’s the man behind my favorite Marilyn Monroe photo seen in this post!). Chef Charles Robinson Jr. is the executive chef of The Black Skillet Catering Co. (follow along on instagram or Facebook!).

Thank you John and Chef Charles for guest posting such a fun twist on a traditional New Year’s dish! There is still time to grab the ingredients to have a Southern New Year’s Celebration with your family and friends! But lets be honest, this dish looks like it would be delicious any time of year!
Wishing you and your loved ones growth and prosperity in 2019!
