    Southerners eat collards and black-eyed peas

    Italians eat lentils and sausage

    My parents always made pork spareribs and sauerkraut (where that one came from is anyone's guess).

    Whatcha havin' for New Years day?

    For New Year's Eve, the wife and I always have lobster.
    Been doing that for years.

    No special traditions for New Years Day though.

    Blackeyed peas down here in Texas, but I could really go for pork ribs and sauekraut. May need to start that.

    We've started a New Year's Eve tradition, last year I prepared dinner for friends, making tempura with shrimp and assorted vegetables. They have a counter in front of a stove (they have two stoves in their kitchen), and I was able to serve the tempura to them out of the oil. We're getting together again, and will also have some raclette cheese-one of the friends who'll be there has a raclette holder. You place a partial wheel of this cheese in the holder, and turn the cut side to the fireplace. When the cheese begins to melt, you turn the holder back and scrape off the soft cheese and serve it on bread, turning the holder back to the fire to melt another layer. Breakfast will be ebelskivvers and sausage.

    Hey Allanc, now and then the cattle get so thick, that the pump jack on the oil wells will knock a few in the head, so we just finish them off an bar-B-Q just enough for a few hundred folks.

    I lobbied for ribs and kraut, but my wife vetoed it for New Yorks on the grill, Bearnaise sauce, bakers, caesar salad and lingonberries over ice cream.

    I'll have my way on New Years day with buffalo wings and these devastatingly hot jamaican wings, whose recipe I begged for over the course of 2 years. I should be singing "The Ring of Fire" by evening.;f

    I'm all about the pork and sauerkraut, but believe it or not, the friends we will be spending New Year's Day with have never heard of pork and sauerkraut, AT ALL, let alone as a good luck food.

    Well, I thought that was bad enough, but my beloved MR. SHOE hasn't either!! ;P

    Although, we never had it with pork ribs... it was always a roast with the sauerkraut in the roasting pan and mashed taters on the side. YUMMMMMMM...

    Somehow I think that isn't what we'll be having, however, since our hosts have never heard of it. Hmph.

    I always make Chatuea Brion using elk tenderloins on New Years. It is marinating in the fridge right now. Sitting next to it is Eddie C.'s 10 item cheesecake that I made last night. We'll be adding some potatoes and salad. Should make a good feast.

    New Years day, Rocky Mountain Breakfast sausage with Coffe Kutchen cake and eggs for breakfast, snacks through the day, and maybe homemade pizza for dinner.

    I didn't know until 2003 that one of my gggfathers was of a wealthy Mississippi plantation family and along with two brothers served through the Civil War in a cavalry unit.

    I'm with Shoeless and Pont's parents. It's pork and sauerkraut day. Those, along with mashed potatoes is about all we eat all day.

    We ended up having smoked turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and a spinach salad. It wasn't pork and sauerkraut, but hey, we were with friends we love, so that's what matters. :)
