I'm just curious...

In your neck of the woods, do you have a particular food that you prepare for New Years?

Here in Southwestern Pennsylvania, it's tradition to serve pork and sauerkraut! We've always done that for as long as I can remember. Eating sauerkraut on the New Year is supposed to bring you good luck in the coming year. Since I don't believe in luck, be it good or bad, I make it because I like it!

So I would like you to leave a short comment and tell me what will be on your New years Day menu !
P.S. Don't forget to tell me what State or country you're from!


  1. It's fun to hear about your food tradition for the new year! We don't have one in our family...just always have lots of snacks and play games on New Year's Eve. Blessings for a great year, Suzy! Thanks for sending the Christmas card! It was fun to have an exchange with you!

    Last night we were at a friends home and we had black eyed peas after midnight which is their tradition. My Mom would alway bring out the pickled herring for luck.

  3. Black eyed peas are traditional here in Texas. We ate at my inlaws house since I don't know how to make them...LOL

    Happy New Year!


Thank you for stoppin' by and leaving a comment...I'll be over to see you in just a little bit !
