    Last year's menu worked well, so we're repeating it. I put pizza dough in my bread machine and set out all the makings for everybody to make their own individual pizzas.  It was really handy with everyone coming and going at different times...Liz.

     Us hillbillies gots us a tradition of black-eyed peas.  Ain't gonna have no money in the new year if ya don't eat them peas!  Ya' also wants ta' fix a coon.  Best if ya add bar-b-que sauce on the last cookin' and served on a samwich.  Good eats and that'll get ya' some fetchens!

    Yes, that is what we will be having.  You can hide your hillbilly roots, but somethings can't be changed.
