I make this dip every year for New Years (and for myself whenever I have a craving.)

For parties, I double the recipe and spread on a large cookie sheet and top with vegetables.

This very thick, rich soup is made to celebrate special occasions, such as New Year's eve and special family events. This recipe was adapted from the Smithsonian Institution's, 1995 Festival of American Folklife Cookbook. Recipes for the book were contributed by American Cape Verdeans who are active in preserving their cultural heritage. The Cape Verde Islands are located about 300 miles west of Senegal. Many Cape Verdeans migrated to the New England area.

This is the salad that Russians make on every Birthday, New Year or any other significant celebration. Bologna may be replaced with chicken breast or meat; however the quickest way is to get bologna

I found a recipe a year ago and changed it to be a little healthier and this is what I've come up with. This soup is fantastic especially on a cold day outside. You can also add less water and shred the turkey thinner and use as a dip. My Mom's always told me to eat my black eyed peas and cabbage on New Years Day for good luck... This is just an easier way to do it and tastier too! Enjoy.

An old Southern dish usually served on New Year's Day with rice, greens, and cornbread. I like to make mine in my trusty crockpot!
You probably will NOT need to salt the peas as the ham serves as seasoning.
