New Year's Food

Yeppers, today's a tradition in the |cehaus, and most of the south for that matter -

For luck in the new year we eat:

Black-eyed peas (representative of monetary income of the jingly type during the new year)
Cabbage (representative of monetary income of the folding type during the new year)

Tradition states that the more of the stuff ya eat, the more $$ you make.

When the ex was doing the cooking the cabbage becomes of the 'corned beef and cabbage' type, reminding us of her Irish heritage - today it was pan sauteed with copious amounts of bacon and creole seasonings. The peas were slow-boiled with the traditional pot-dividend of leftover Christmas ham, and served over hot-water cornbread.

What do y'all across-the-pond types eat on new year's? Or even you Yankee types? Hell, I ain't picky...

Last night we had an Asian dinner consisting of homemade Chinese dumplings and a vegetarian curry with nan and salad.

Homemade apple crisp with ice cream for dessert

For brunch we had Beauties Specials ....which are toasted bagels with cream cheese, tomato, red onion and smoked salmon. (borrowed the recipe from Beautys Restaurant Montreal)

Then I roasted a small chicken stuffed with herbs lemon and garlic...with roasted potatoe and carrots...for dinner. Left over apple crisp...now making a chicken broth

We celebrate foods of the world....and we are grateful we can
