My grandmother would eat a pickled herring at midnight, for prosperity.

Still carrying on the tradition. A few years ago, I started making posole as the hominy component. Today we'll spread the meal out, with pastrami sliders and fried cabbage for lunch and posole + black-eyed peas for dinner. 4 years ago today, prosperity dinner was the last time I saw or spoke to my dad. He died suddenly on March 31 that year, and his inability to not bring up his odious politics meant very few visits and phone calls. But all of us kids connect still over the right way to fry cabbage and our least favorite prosperity food.

I introduced my wife to this concept yesterday and am now worried that next year she’ll actually want to make collard greens and black eyed peas for nye
