Here it's the custom to have Pork, because it's the south, Greens are so you prosper in the New Year, and Blackeyed Peas for good luck.

So I am cooking a slab of Pork Ribs, fresh Collard Greens with onion, garlic, and seasoned with bacon, and a pot of Blackeyed Peas with onion, garlic, and bacon. All cooked on the grill outside and smoked with Apple Chips. I still have to go to the store for dessert, but I'm thinking Lemon Meringue Pie.

YUMMM!!!!

We eat as soon as it's done.

I can't say that I'm aware of the origins of the tradition, but we always have Pork and Saur-kraut on New Years day. My grandmother said that it was to ensure prosperity in the coming year. We generally have Kielbasi too.

I always get the best of both worlds, north and south of the Mason/Dixon line. We fix Ham and black Eyed Peas, Greens, Corn beef and Cabbage, mixed Veggies, Corn Bread. After that, it's nap time on the couch with my daughters.

No traditional meals here, just whatever we have or want. Lunch was chopped steak, fried corn, and mashed potatoes. Was good too! Tonight just sandwiches.

Wind took the power out earlier so it was off to the Japanese steakhouse for me. Hibachi cooked scallops with garlic sauce and sushi(cooked sushi, not raw).

Sure sounds like good eating. It also sounds alot like the way Grandpa Jones did it on Hee Haw. Brought back good memories.
