Thread: New Year's menu?

    Default New Year's menu?

    I'm doing easy stuff this year. For New Year's Eve there will be Little
    Smokies in BBQ sauce for Angela and husband. I'm making two packages so
    they can eat some the next day too. Also Tater Tots, black olives and baby
    carrots or maybe green beans if Angela prefers those.

    The canned green beans are starting to frustrate me. I was buying the S & W
    from Costco. But I found they often had stems in the can. So when they
    came out with their own brand, I bought those. Organic and sea salt. My
    kind of beans! And I thought they tasted fine. Angela hated them though
    and refused to eat them although she could not give a reason. She does love
    canned beans though so I took her to the store and allowed her to pick out
    what she wanted. Her favorite brand is Del Monte. Not sure why. So I got
    four cans of those and guess what? That's right. A stem in the can! Gah!
    When we lived in CA, I would buy odd brands of beans for 25 cents a can.
    Back then, Angela would often eat a whole can all by herself in the course
    of a day. She wanted them at every meal and also for snacks. I don't mind
    stems in a cheap can of beans. But when I'm paying good money for the beans
    I want good beans! But I digress.

    I will probably pop some corn to eat during the fireworks. Not sure how
    long those will last but since it is a weekend they could go on all night.
    Sometimes they do. Luckily it is not bitter cold. I have only worn my coat
    a few times and not even the heavy duty one. I got a gray fleece jacket
    this year. I have it in my van but have only had to put it on maybe 2 or 3
    times.

    For breakfast, I will make the sausage and applesauce casserole for Angela
    and husband. I will probably have some applesauce and black eyed peas
    (nobody else likes them).

    For dinner, I will make faux pierogies and we will have leftover meatloaves.

    Angela bought some festive hats and party blowers. I bought some holiday
    crackers. Not edible ones. The kind where you pull the end and prizes come
    out.

    not sure what we are doing, the smoked turkey turned out so well from the
    grocery may do that again, Lee

    Daughter and husband like smoked meats but I do not. They just taste funny

    its one of the few ways i can enjoy meat smokier the better, this particular
    place has turkey legs on offer regularily, but you can special order the
    same day and have them gaurenteed. after the turkey day disaster this
    seemed to b a better option,

    I found some smoked cooked turkey legs here once. I think the brand was
    Dietz. We like their turkey so I bought a lot of them. And then my husband
    wouldn't eat them. I don't think Angela tried them.

    New Year's menus aren't a tradition here. You are more likely to find
    many parties at which there are bbq's, nibblies, copious amounts of
    alcohol and drunks trying to kiss you at midnight

    I do not like dark meat from turkey or chicken. I can eat turkey breast a
    few times a year but it is by no means a favorite food.

    I bought a nice Pork Loin, which we will have with sauerkraut , mashed
    potatoes, corn, biscuits, applesauce. I Lay a bed of sauerkraut in the pan
    mixed with chunky onions, then place the pork on top of it...cover and bake
    ....I take the cover off the last half hour. My Mother always made pork ribs
    with sauerkraut .

    I only heard about the black eyed peas a few years ago. But I love black
    eyes peas so... What better excuse to eat them?

    I didn't know about this tradition, but I find that I like to eat the
    way Germans reputedly eat. Give me pork and cabbage any day!

    However, I'll be working on the turkey carcass until I go back to work
    on Monday, so it'll probably be tetrazzini (sans pasta) or turkey and
    mushrooms in leftover gravy or the like. I think Saturday will be when
    I make the soup.

    PP, up to her elbows in turkey
