In this neck of the woods its saurkraut and pork. Thats one of the reasons we try to be somewhere else on new years. I wanna be in a place that has a new years traditional meal of fettucine carbonara and garlic bread.

Oysters giuseppi would be good.

Blackeyed peas, collard greens, gumbo. Haven't decided yet on the meat. Maybe cornish hens?

Pepto Bismol and Goody's powders.

Our party is going to be huge. There will be casualties.

I'm going to have to think of some kind of grown-up New Year's Day food tradition.

We've been hanging on to my gang's university tradition for a few too many decades. Sour cream and onion potato chips, licorice, diet pepsi, aspirin and bananas. The Cosmo Girl's Bedside Astrologer was part of the tradition until about 2 years ago.

Time to grow up Confused

Maybe some more exotic potato chips?

I did find some hot wing and blue cheese chips that were kinda tasty - make you good and thirsty too - perfect for New Year's Day Cool

don't need much to be thirsty on New Years day, that's for sure! But true, I crave salt, animal fat and spices... Something to give me back my minerals that I lost the night before.

How do you folk cook your black eyed peas? (I notice they're quite popular!)
I'd be interested to do something different with them.

MSOLGA , heres two methods for Cowpeas (blackeye peas real name).
NEW YEARS BLACK EYE PEAS
1pound dried black-eyed peas
1 pound link sausage, or your favorite(we like andouille or kielbasa)
1 small onion, chopped
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup prepared barbecue sauce
PREPARATION:
Rinse, prepare, soak, and cook peas in about 3 cups water, following directions on the package. Drain and reserve half of the cooking liquid. In a skillet over medium heat, brown sausage and onions; drain off excess fat. Combine ingredients (TO TASTE).

A little Tabasco cant hurt none


SIMPLE "HOPPIN JOHN"
cook a cup of peas in a "potlikker" (hamhock or piece of ham or salt pork)
cook a cup of rice separately

When done, mix together and eat

Thank you, farmer! Very Happy

I think the simple Hoppin John (always wondered what that was!) might be the go! (for my first effort!)

I gather black eyed peas are a new year tradition in the US? (Judging from all the folk here who'll be cooking & eating them & the name of your first recipe.)
