OT - Just about time for the traditional Southern New Year's Day dinner!
Posted by: Mongoose ()
Date: January 1, 2008 22:40

Growing up in the southeast USA, there are minor variations to this meal, of course, but any southerner worth his or her salt today is having:

PORK OF SOME KIND (at our house, left over Honeybaked Ham)

BLACK EYED PEAS (for money for the New Year, in this case, coins)

GREENS (Turnip or Collards....green money for the New Year)

RICE (added in by my wife's aunt, for overall "good luck" - ain't gonna argue about it!)

CORN BREAD (served up with butter, maybe a spread of apple butter on each slice)

Top it all off with a bourbon and put Let It Bleed on the music box, and you're in business. Add in a Sugar Bowl victory by my Georgia Bulldogs, and all is right with the world.

What time can y'all come over?

Just finished this same meal, Mongoose. Several cocktails between now and kick-off at 8:30.

Go Dawgs!

Well we're having a different menu this year. Fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and blackeyes. I had some cravings this time around! But the cocktails, cold beer and all that is the same. Glad we have folks pulling for the DOGS on iorr. And right now I'm working on my new solo acoustic version of You Got The Silver. This can't be all bad!! Cheers 5

All that stuff plus a piping hot bowl of gumbo with
a dash of Tabasco sauce!

Maybe some bananas foster for dessert.

Well, we're having a variation on the theme, with homemade veggie soup and some blackeyed peas on the side. It's 29 degrees (and dropping) here in WV, with some snow predicted tonight.

Mongoose, had the same yesterday. My girlfriend is a Yankee so I'm trying to teach her our good Southern food traditions.

Baboon, that is one helluva pizza! Does it come with a stomach pump?

The Dawgs looked awesome in totally destroying the formerly undefeated Hawaii Warriors.

Hey rooster, do they blow up cars in your neighborhood to celebrate New Years Day? My Uncle Stumpy did that before the accident.

HAHAHA!

I have never heard of this Southern NY meal. I hope everyone enjoyed their meal, and I'm even more thankful that I didn't have to have any of that kind of food!

We had turkey and trimmin's on Thanksgiving, but Christmas '06 and '07 we had Chicken'n'dumplin's and some good spicy chili.
New Years was ham, potato salad, cabbage, black eye peas, chips and salsa, etc.
Dang, it's early and I'm making myself hungry.
