Default New Years Dinner 2019

I dont have as clue as to what I will eat but I have a few things in mind.
You know stuff I haven had in a good long while.

Personally I couldn't care less about the greens ham and black eyed peas.
So that is off the list for me.

On the list of possibilities is deep fried sweetbreads I haven't had them in maybe over a year.
Maybe some pre-pressure cooked batter dipped deep fried chicken gizzards too.


What are you all having may I ask?

We're having cabbage rolls and who knows what else will pop up. Has anyone noticed the size of cabbage in the stores? I checked 4 stores and they're all small heads, must be the warm weather.

I also want to try a soup recipe from Kent Rollins, Cowboy Collard Greens and Black Eyed Pea Soup with Bacon Fried Cornbread

Cabbage heads not much bigger than a softball in the store, I just checked.

Bagna Cauda with Italian Bread, cabbage, portobello mushrooms, cauliflower and thin sliced smoked coffee encrusted New York Strip steak to use for "dippers".

Tomorrow morning, I will do the cooking and here's my breakfast menu.

Breakfast steaks dipped in all purpose flour.
Hash Browns
Scrambled or over easy eggs
Sliced tomatoes
Home made skillet gravy (made with skillet drippings)
Biscuits and toast
Coffee
Orange juice and/or Milk for the kids

This is my tradition for my branch of the family. I call it "Comfort Food".

===========================================
Menu for afternoon brunch

Beer-Battered Butterfly shrimp
New York cut steaks with sautéed sweet peppers and onions with Captain Morgan spiced rum
Baked potato
Rolls and Garlic Texas Toast
A Large salad tray with Hidden Valley sour cream dip
A fruit tray
Home made Friendship Cake, Lemon Pie, Chocolate Pie, and Apple Pie
Home canned pears with ice cream
Home made tomato juice
Coffee, juices, & Diet Pepsi, with Beer, Blush wine, Sherry, and spirits for the adults

No real tradition here. It just tastes good and allows snacking the rest of the day.

From our house to you and yours, we wish you all the very best for the coming new year.

Pork and sauerkraut is the good luck tradition in my area. I don't believe that stuff but hubby likes pork and sauerkraut so I may as well make it.

I made a huge pot of minestrone yesterday. You add a dollop of pesto to your bowl and ladle the hot soup over it.
Heaven.

Our tradition is potato chips and cucumber dip (cukes, neufschatel cream cheese, & Worcestershire sauce). Usually it's on New Year's Eve, but this year we'll be piggin' out on New Year's Day.

Just got this gifted to me.
Made in Houston Texas.
Having a glass as we speak.
Not as good as Evan Williams but a heck of a lot better than Jack Daniels.

I bought a couple bottles of good bourbon about 15 years ago, Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 15 year old and Van Winkle 12 year old "lot b"... I came home to my brother in law drinking most of it... But I still have the bottles! The empties are almost worth what I paid originally, but the full bottle of Pappy would be worth a grand today.

+1 for Beam!!!

I've been on a micro brewery beer kick and bought a few to try tonight before I make smash burgers. My favorite is citra hops and it's hard to top Parish brewing but I keep trying.

I'm starting off with this, it's not bad but I won't buy it again.

It will be an early evening for me, as well.

Blackeyed peas and smoked hog jowl tomorrow!
Happy New Year, my friends!

Wishing you and yours a healthy and prosperous 2019!
