I'm not sure. Now, if I could just teach them that you only need to poach the shrimp for a few minutes, instead of cooking it for 30......

Subtract the collards and add mimosas, and you're eatin' in my kitchen on New Year's Day.

We also make a big pot of Rotel dip with sausage and put out various chips.

Oh, and don't forget to bring your leftover Christmas treats. We all eat each other's to get rid of them for the new year.

Taking the treats is a wonderful idea - I'd never thought about that. We didn't even touch our desserts hardly. I have 2 pies with only 1 piece missing and one that wasn't cut at all - more than half of a fruitcake and about half of a mandarin orange cake (the rest I sent home with sil. I don't know why we weren't hungry for dessert this year. I tried to have a delicious, but healthy dinner so perhaps that was the reason everyone passed on most of the dessert.

This is more like what happens, but, you asked for traditions.


Mudbug, I'm the only one in the house that will eat the collard greens, noone else cares for them.

New Years Eve the whole bunch of us go to our favorite Chinese place and have dinner, we then come back here and have dessert later in the evening..It's pretty quiet, except for the kiddos. We just talk and play games with the kids...Nothing special..Just us

Buckytom+silly comments = my coffee all over my monitor.


We always have finger foods for New Year's Eve's game night, and then on New Year's Day, it's whatever I can forrage through the fridge for.

Reviving this thread - we're having a few couples over for New Year's Day. So far the menu is Pork & Saurkraut in one crockpot, kielbasa, brats, etc. with saurkraut in another crock pot. Mashed taters on the side. To me, the menu is really lacking.

Can anyone share other traditional New Year's Day meals from different parts of the country? I have heard of Hoppin' John a number of times - I think it's a southern thing. I need to research that one & find a good recipe.

Thank you!

New Years day is Football - so, lots of munchies - cheese, sausage, meatballs, veggie try, cheeseballs, dips, chips and crackers. May do a Boston Butt, for sandwiches !

Fairly tradtional across the South...Black-eyed peas and hog jowl (meat that comes from the cheek of the hog..cured kinda like bacon...can be bought in a chunk or sliced) or smoked hocks, and of course cornbread...Tradition says it brings good luck.

Please use the dry variety.(not the canned version) soak over night in plenty of water then cook until tender with your favorite seasonings...salt, pepper garlic, onions, peppers, thyme, cumin, and so on.....
