Peas, Lobster, Carrots???....
The old saying goes that you should eat black-eyed peas for good financial luck throughout the coming year. So far, that has not been very successful for moi. So, I am looking for some new suggestions.
First, I asked Connie, a delightful friend for advice. She hates peas. She told me that she had asked another friend in Atlanta if she had eaten the peas. She said, "No, I had lobster. Po' folks eat black-eyed peas and stay po'. Rich folks eat lobster and stay rich."
Next, I asked my son, Chris, if he ate peas. He also hates peas, and he is a student studying Oriental medicine/culture. He said, according to Asian belief, one must eat something orange for 28 consecutive days to get financial bliss
Now, I have just two questions before I begin--does Lobster sauce count? and, what about orange Peeps? Jelly Bellies? Candy Corn?
