    New Years Day Traditional Meals

    Do you have a special/traditional meal on NY day?

    In the South, NY day dinner will include blackeye peas and cabbage (prepared many different ways). Tradtionally, they symbolize health and wealth.

    i am going to fix a duck with raspberry sauce...
    everyone else is going to bring side dishes... then we are having a block party on the beach of all the residents with a pet parade lol
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    CABBAGE!? I grew up on Cabbage and potato soup because we were poor! My Dad was a toolmaker, and as an apprentice didn't make a lot of money until he became a journeyman. Our traditional meal now is ham, mashed potatos, blueberry muffins, green beans, corn, pecan pie, and New York vanilla ice cream.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Call me stupid, but what the heck is the difference between New York ice cream and just plain old vanilla ice cream? I've never been able to tell the difference if there is one.

    I think New York vanilla has more vanilla content.

    It also uses the whole bean vanilla, those little black dots are vanilla bean seeds.

    OK, but what's New York have to do with it? Why not Boston vanilla or Chicago? Heck, why not just call it More Vanilla vanilla ice cream?

    Now you're talkin'... peas and cornbread. Back when I was just a youngin' they were called purple hull peas. Every summer my dad would plant them in the garden. I loved shelling them (one of my favorite childhood memories).

    I don't have one either. I just get the day off of work and I sleep all day from being up all night

    Oooooh, i'm one of the few people I know that likes pickled herring. Not many of my friends like it. Funny story, the first time I had it was at my best friends house in high school. Her dad was hoping for a grossed out face when i ate it, but was disappointed when I said it was good

    That too....I'm part Norwegian, so a smorsbrod has to have fish in many forms. Gotta have the cheeses, various meats and sausages, bread and ice cold akavit!

    My Grandma makes the best cocktail sauce for the shrimp too...extra horseradish!!!!!

    In France, peoples like to eat Foie Gras on toasts, oysters, smoked salmon, and... snails cooked in their cockles with a butter/garlic/parsley sauce (not a joke!) -

    Bon appetit!

    Yes my wife fixes a "southern traditional" meal on new years day (or close enough due to both of us working for the sheriff's office) but that doesn't mean I have to eat all she cooks, lol
    Any Post I make is my opinion only!
    I do not have the authority or the permission to post for my Sheriff's Office.
