Welcome. Oshogatsu wa osechi ryori tabetai...
But chances are, if we host, we'll serve finger foods like we always do. It's easy, and not much pre-planning to do.

New Year's Eve I am going to a pot luck.
New Year's Day- Pork Roast, Sauerkraut, Mashed Potatoes, Black-eyed Peas and other veggies to be determined later. Maybe Honey Glazed Carrots and Lemon Peppered Green Beans.

The BLPs are good luck and the carrot "coins" simulate money coming in. The more you eat the more prosperous the new year will be.

I am doing kielbasa, pork, sauerkraut, pickled beets, rye bread and pierogies.

I need to come up with a sweet finale!

Out to dinner early New Year's Eve. Then back to our place for champagne and a belated Christmas celebration.

New Years Day we'll probably have some combination of things we traditionally do. Shrimp cocktail, marinated herring, etc.

Is it legal where you live to consume alcohol under the age of 21? Please be very careful.

New Years Eve is traditionally what we call "Butterfest" at our house. Usually this is the last day we pig out before starting the annual New Year Diet (), so we have Crab, Lobster, Artichokes, or whatever else we can find that requires being drenched or bathed in butter. All washed down with copious amounts of sparkling wine, of course.

New Year's Day means Oyster Stew. I love the stuff. I don't know why we don't make it more often. New Year's Day is about the only time we ever have it.

Black-eye peas, hog jowl, turnip/mustard/collard/cabbage greens.and cornbread. ~ It's sorta a Southern Tradition ~ Peas are "coins", greens are "cash" cornbread is "gold" ....All for good luck, health and wealth in the New Year ~ Some say you must eat 365 peas...one for each day of the year ~ I've eaten this meal each year for a life time....this year will be no different.

Fun!

For our annual New Year's Day open house, we have the same menu as Uncle Bob, but without the greens. We also drink mimosas. Our guests are encouraged to bring all their leftover Christmas cookies and such so we can all get rid of them.

nice extra signature line ya got there, UB.....

Lots of alcohol makes me sick. I'll throw everything up during the night and feel completely miserable and nauseous the next day. Not worth it.

Hey Claire,

has been a custom for many years.

Merry Christmas.

I have the ingredients for two pies. Accidentally thawed half the meat. So we'll be having it sooner AND later. Christmas eve (after midnight mass) was the tradition in my family. My husband loves he stuff, so I'll bake one Christmas eve day, then probably again new year's eve afternoon. We're invited to a lot of places over the next couple of weeks, so having them on hand for a slice at brunch, lunch, dinner, or just a slice to line your stomach before a night of drinking is good. They freeze well and nuke well.

Me too. I used to get a champagne headache that felt like an ice pick stabbed into my brain. It's one night I NEVER go out. Amatuer night, people drinking and driving that don't usually do that. Nope, not me. I go to bed at a reasonable hour and wake up when the noise starts, wish myself a Happy New Year, and go back to sleep.
