New Year’s Day Dinner

It’s New Year’s Day 2011 and I am looking forward to dinner tonight with my family!  I have lived in the south for 20+ years now, but we stick to our northern roots for New Year’s dinner…no greens or black eyed peas for us 🙂 

This is some of what we have…

Stuffed pork chops

Cinnamon apples

Boiled cabbage…mom adds one of each, a quarter, dime, nickel and penny.  She says it will tell you how much wealth you will have in the coming year, but I think it is more to encourage everyone to eat their cabbage 🙂 

What are some of the highlights of your family’s New Year’s dinner?

    We have not had a regular menu for a while. My extended family always had the collards and black-eyed peas, but since we have hung out at home the last few years, it's kind of whatever we feel like.

    Today it will probably be enchiladas 🙂
