Over the last week or so I have been listing things to be thankful for in this market. So far I have covered three things. They are:

1. The Teachings of Benjamin Graham

2. Low P/E Ratios

3. The Inevitable Market Rebound

And now I am listing numbers 4 and 5:

4.     Black Eyed Peas, and
5.     Collard Greens

Seriously, do I really need to say more? There are few things in life that beat mom’s collard greens and pop’s black eyed peas thrown in with a little Jamaican corn bread. And with today’s economy and the burden it is putting on the pocket book, a cheap meal is hard to come by. In fact, with Americans on food stamps reaching an all-time high, a cheap nutritious meal is just what the doctor ordered.

Southern folklore suggests, that a meal of black eyed peas and collard greens will bring with it good luck and financial prosperity. The peas represent coins and the greens represent folding money. Both foods are dependable sources of nutrients and antioxidants that protect your heart and maybe prevent cancer and both are great sources of folic acid.

So in the spirit of Thanksgiving and my hope we can all get a little more luck and wealth in our lives, I have decided to share a recipe from the Homesick Texan for black eyed peas:

And another for collard greens from Ms. Financial Savvy:

Good eats and Happy Thanksgiving!
