Here's some history on the dish: a savory meal of black-eyed peas, greens, vegetables, and rice (often with a protein such as bacon), which is traditionally eaten on New Years with the idea that it will bring good fortune in the coming year. It's specific to the coastal island region of South Carolina, and is believed to have its origins in the cuisine prepared by African slaves -- which probably explains why, if you're looking for the closest comparator at any Disney table service, you'll find it at Boma: Flavors of Africa, which serves a similar-sounding dish featuring black-eyed peas and greens with chakalaka (vegetable relish), over peanut rice.
No need to be rude.
I wasn't being rude, it sounds delicious. But it was presented in a way is if it's something everyone knows about.
Trust me: In Publix, you'll find black eyed peas out front and possibly in the BOGO section. They might even have all the ingredients together in the aisle for do it yourself meals (usually near the deli). As for a hot meal, it's entirely possible they could offer it as ham (main course), black eyed peas (side), collard greens, and cornbread.I grew up in NJ and have known about these food traditions since I was a kid. I'm not sure if it's because my dad's love of cooking, the 8 months they lived in GA, my mom's seasonal food magazines, or what. Pickled herring was one more they had in our mix, which I think has some European origins. I loved the herring, could handle the black eyed peas, but always took a tiny serving of greens to keep the peace with my parents. While Homecomin' seems like the most likely one to have something seasonal like this, I can't find any evidence to show that they've ever offered such a seasonal menu. In light of that, you might find some kind of offering at Publix since a lot of local markets stock up for the holidays. I can't recall from my FL years if our Publix ever offered any of it, but I know I see it each year here in TX. If not, there may be some local Soul Food restaurants that might have a New Year's special for these traditions that may possibly also offer delivery.
