Pork And Kraut---Good Luck Meal

If it were not for the pork and black eyed peas
My husband would not be eating this meal with me
I love my pork and sauerkraut for our New Year good 
luck meal
Hubbie hates kraut and would take bad luck that is
just the way he feels
I will have the kraut and him the black eyed peas
Then he will share in the good luck meal with me

Sauerkraut and cookies, well now that's just rediqulous. But, you get the idea. Your husband is missing out on one of the great pleasures in life.

Afraid I have to side with your husband on that my friend. I prefer cabbage, rutabagas and ham hocks served with corn bread. Good job here though. God Bless, JB

Oh, it looks like a winner to me, Carol! I'm not sure about the kraut either, but then again I've never made any. Still, you both are blessed to be enjoying this meal together! Best wishes to you and yours! Love Mikki

It sounds like a marriage of nations. I'm from PA. and my wife is from GA.. My crockpot was full of saurkraut, kielbasa and hotdogs this Sunday. I would have had the pork too but my crockpot and blood pressure couldn't handle it. I don't see a need to enter the contest because it would be plagarism. Good job and I hope you put the bay leaf in the black eyed peas. Good luck in the new year. Rockman. :-)

OMG!! I've never put those letters together before until this poem. You must be a Yankee. Me too. I have my kraut and kielbasa and hotdogs in the fridge right now. But my crockpot will be on fire Sunday. Do you put a bay leaf in the black eyed peas for him? It's said in the South that whoever gets the leaf in their bowl has good luck the rest of the year. Thanks for this write. :-)
