New Year's Menu

What do you usually make for New Years? I've always hated black-eyed peas, but ever since 2005, which was a bad year for us financially, I cook and eat them. Is there anyway to spruce them up? I made them with a hamhock, bell pepper, onion, and spices and they were better than plain, but I'm still not crazy about them. We ate them with cornbread and collard greens. Anybody got any good recipes or suggestions?

I've never had (or made) black-eyed pees, so I'm no help there.

Here's what I'll be cooking on New Year's Day:

Pork and sauerkraut. Thin pork chops, sausage and kielbasi cooked with sauerkraut. We'll also have mashed potatoes, brown and serve rolls and a veggie tray.

Oh that's funny. I was thinking of doing that one and decided to do this one:

So I am having smoked sausage with black eyed peas, braised cabbage, and cornbread.

Tell me how the spicy black eyed peas turn out. They sound really good.
