    Thought I would start a new thread for the coming year..
    New Year's in our house is just another day.. Nothing special food wise..

    Supper tonight (New Year's Eve) will be homemade chicken burgers on the BBQ..

    Some sort of a steamed veggie to go with it.. Probably green and yellow beans with sour cream..

    Breakfast New Year's Day: 3 egg omelette with 2 slices of Turkey Bacon for my Princess
    3 scrambled eggs for me..

    Lunch: As usual, a BIG hug and kiss from my dearest wife, my Princess......

    HERE'S WISHING EVERYONE A VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR

    New Year's Day and I have to again figure out what to make for supper..
    I know I had burgers last night, but these are different and will be more like a minced steak rather than a burger..

    I have some minced Moose that I will thaw and make some Moose Burgers on the BBQ..
    Caramelized onions with sliced mushrooms to go on top of the burgers..
    No buns, just burgers..

    A turnip casserole would go well with the burgers..
    I also have some coleslaw on the side..

    White chocolate pudding for dessert..
    I will scrape some dark chocolate on top for appearance..

    Voila !!!! A perfect meal to start the New Year..

    Today we will have the traditional ( for this area ) new years meal; hog jowl, peas, greens and cornbread.

    What's traditional in your area?

    Today is my day off...and New years day as well...but I've had nothing out of the ordinary to eat today because I've been busy catching up with chores before returning to work tomorrow.

    Breakfast was ..Toast and orange marmalade

    Lunch was a bowl of frosties..and skimmed milk

    Mid after noon ( a few minutes ago)...was 2 freshly baked bread Sun dried tomato and Parmesan bread rolls that I baked today ( I've also baked a whole large loaf)...scrummmy yummmy

    No idea what dinner is going to be...possibly Kangaroo steaks and veggies...haven't made up my mind yet

    For dinner, I cooked collards, black eyed peas, baked sweet potatoes and country ham 'n biscuits. We are supposed to have hog head but you can't buy them anymore. So I cooked meat from the opposite end.:) That is a traditional New Year's day dinner in this part of the country.

    My husband follows the traditional New Year's menu of pork and sauerkraut. Blackeyed peas, baked pork ribs and sauerkraut and hot water cakes (fried cornmeal). I made the Kool-Aid :rolleyes:.

    I would love to contribute our menu to this thread but there is nothing to contribute. For new year's eve, we had spaghetti in special tomato sauce plus pork barbecue in small sticks. On January 1, understandably the table would show the leftover spaghetti and barbecue which was our fare until dinner. Today, January 2, the breakfast si simply spaghetti and no more buttered toast, we've had too much. And tonight? we are thinking of buying something different for dinner but there is still a mountain of spaghetti and a few sticks of barbecue.

    I guess I will be eating much the same as last year, I am mainly vegetarian now and start the day with Kefir and fruit, followed by one main meal usually at lunchtime, today will be left over veggie chilli, apart from that a couple of snacks of tomatoes and cheese. My weight doesn't vary at all on this style of eating and I am never hungry.

    We cooked 2 kilos of spaghetti and a cauldron of matching sauce. And to think that there were only 3 of us in the house for the New Year's eve celebration (the midnight dinner), we distributed to some neighbors. And on January 1, we went on a joy ride for a brief visit to relatives for their share of the spaghetti. With the pork barbecue, we had only 10 sticks because it started to rain at 10pm and the charcoal will get wet. But since there were only 3 of us, those 10 sticks lasted until the next day.

    For supper tonight (Saturday) I made a stew in the slow cooker..
    I have NO idea what kind of meat it was, but it turned out very good.. Put some stock, worcester sauce, onions, carrots, parsnips, mushrooms and green peas..

    I made a small amount of pasta to go with it as a base..

    As much as I want to, I have no time to watch tv or youtube because of my hectic schedule particularly the chores during the holidays. But thank you for the link, I would try seeing it later in the day in the hope of getting new ideas for cooking. Just take note that I am not the chef in the house but my husband although he would cook whatever I would suggest, hahahaaah.

    New Year's Eve I went out with a friend for Sushi but I ordered the Scallops with Feta and Spinach sautéed in Miso and a glass of Chardonnay. When the waitress brought it, it was just raw spinach with scallops on top. I asked her where the Feta was. She was puzzled so I told her that Feta is a white cheese. She said, "No there's no cheese, just Feta Spinach". Haha, my friend and I told her there is no such thing as Feta Spinach but she insisted, pointing to the kitchen, "She told me it is Feta Spinach". I said okay but sent it back for the spinach to be sautéed as I don't like the texture of raw spinach (it's the feel of rubbery powdery leaves or something…hard to describe).

    New Years Day is traditionally Black Eyed Peas for good luck but my family never does that. Instead, a light Buffet, Brandy Egg Nog or Wine, and celebrated with family in front of the fireplace and watch the festivities TV or music.
    This year was 70 degrees so no fire :(

    Again today it looks like a casserole night.. Snowing, cold, and windy.. Temperature will drop to -27c by suppertime with brisk winds.. NO BBQ tonight..

    I have a casserole that I make with B/S chicken cubed to which I add a ton of veggies..
    That could go over quite well tonight and it is easy eating..

    I LOVE those one dish meals.. Easy to make and easy to clean up after..

    A dessert could be in order which might be some white chocolate pudding with some dark chocolate scraped on top..

    I make deep fried salmon or mackerel patties often, Steve. I've never tried them with sour cream. I usually make tartar sauce. I wonder if sour cream would make a good base for tartar sauce instead of using mayonnaise. o_O
