New Year’s Day Traditional Meal

Filed under: Uncategorized — Valerie Springer @ 6:05 pm

On New Year’s Day people everywhere set their tables for luck and prosperity!

 

At my house, we also join in on the festivities.  While most major holidays were spent with parents and grandparents, I decided years ago I would start a New Year’s Day Meal at my house for the happy three and anyone else who wanted to join us. 

We eat off our Christmas china given to me by my grandparents,  and use the beautiful crystal that sits in my china cabinet most of the year dormant.  I also break out the lace tablecloth and even though we usually eat during the day we light the candles.  This year due to the football games (Roll Tide) we will eat supper.

My menu has been consistant through the years.  The table is filled with the following:

ORANGE PORK CHOPS

BLACK EYED PEAS WITH RED CAYENNE PEPPER & HAM

TURNIP GREENS

GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE (for those who don’t eat TG’s)

HEN AND DRESSING (Cora’s recipe)

FRIED CORN YELLOW AND WHITE MIXED

PISTACHIO SALAD

BREAD AND BUTTER PICKLES

CORN BREAD STICKS

WHIPPED BUTTER

HOUSE WINE OF THE SOUTH…SWEET TEA

APPLE PIE AND ICE CREAM

It is all in fun and another excuse for us Southern Belle’s to get in the kitchen and whip up a good meal.  Entertaining is what we all live for anyway.  This year we will host about 13 guests and are looking forward to once again having our home filled with laughter.

These and a few more!

Well…I must end this blog and make my grocery list, Happy New Year to All and I wish you a year filled with blessings and prosperity.  Love your family and cherish each and every moment!

Yours to Count On,
