It's Hoppin' John Day
For good luck all year a southern tradition is Hoppin' John should be served today. Black-eyed peas, ham, onions, red pepper flakes, celery, etc. served with rice.
If you aren't familiar with it I have linked one of the many recipes below. Using already canned black-eyed peas speeds up the preparation of course. :)
PS: also good when made with hamburger.
