What's for Dinner, Thursday Jan. 1st?

Thought I'd start it since I am so new around here!

And I hate to say it but "unknown" - maybe grilled burgers and potato pancakes from left over mashed

Welcome tzakiel and thanks for starting the thread.

Nothing special here as DH will be working tonight. I am putting together nibbles for him to take with him for the staff and residents and I will keep some back for my dinner. Iam planning to make him a nice omelet for lunch.

Standard New Year's Day food but my own twist on it.

Collard greens, pork, black-eyed peas. I make a hoppin' john of sorts with caramelized onions and red peppers, rice, of course, cumin, cilantro, and then mix all together. Serve it up in a bowl with some sour cream and pico de gallo.

Was going to do the traditional pork and saurkraut, but I have a lot of leftovers, so tonight will be BBQ pulled pork.

I'm trying to make black eyed peas but either the pot smells funny or the food inside does. I'm hoping it's just the pot because it's cast iron and the outside has oil on it. I'm also trying greens. I'm lucking for any luck I can.

Mmmmm. All of your ideas sound yummy! I'm doing navy bean soup with ham hocks, that cornbread recipe someone was kind enough to post the other day (the one with the sour cream), and iceburg lettuce wedges with blue cheese and bacon crumbles. And champagne, of course. Happy New Year, everybody!

jalapeno marinated chicken breasts on the grill, with buttered linguini and black-eyed peas on the side for a big lunch - we just got up a few minutes ago (noon Central time).

Later today we'll snack on the leftovers from the party we attended last night, and clean out the leftovers in the fridge.

We actually have invitations to three different parties today, but I think the one we'll end up at around dinner time is also serving ham hocks, beans and corn bread. Yum. Last night for dinner, my daughter and her boyfriend joined us for grilled salmon, fresh green beans almondine, pan-roasted potatoes and we each ate 12 grapes for dessert - a Mexican custom for good luck in the New Year. Hope everyone enjoys their New Year's dinners!

Saludos, Karen
