Traditional Meal for New Years Day

Ok, Ya'll...I just gotta ask. Does anyone else eat the traditional southern New Years Day meal of hog jowels, black-eyed peas and greens? This is not a meal I take lightly being from the South. There's a lot people from the South who don't like these foods, who still follow this important tradition to ensure good luck throughout the new year. Ummmmm...smells good!

Corned beef and cabbage around the Midwest. Roy, none of these meals can be taken "lightly", they all sound quite heavy.

Our New Years meal must have sauerkraut, and pork for good luck. A carry over from my family. We like to smoke ribs before we bake them with our own homemade kraut. We do have other things to go with it. I have been having this on New Years Day now over 60 years ! Hog jowels, black-eyed peas and greens, sounds good too !

Happy New Year !!

All of the above sounds so good! I have cooked the traditional southern meal today to insure good luck, (the dime is in the black eye peas) but I have to admit I have changed it some. Instead of hog jowl, I cook with chicken broth or chicken bullion cubes. I do try to lighten up hoping we will both live a long life and enjoy our RV for many years to come. Happy New Year to all of you on this great forum. I don't post much, we are still too new to have a lot to offer but I read it almost every day and never fail to pick up valuable information.

Hey, the fact that I can take nourishment on New Years Day is good luck in itself!

black eyed peas from the southern wing and pickled herring from the northern wing.
they really don't go well together.

That does not sound the least bit appetizing. The herring is good, but not with the black-eyed peas.

I guess there's something to be said about eating for luck but I think the TCU Horn Frogs just kicked butt with or without the "luck food".

Now, gig'em Aggies!

Having a brother who graduated from University of Alabama (Roll Tide! they rolled over those Spartans today) we've gotta have black-eyed peas & greens with our German-heritage pork roast & sauerkraut. It took me a while to get to like greens - they're kinda bitter. He's even got the bottle with those tiny yellow peppers in the vinegar liquid to sprinkle over the greens - too hot for my taste.
