Happy New Year! Happy 2019! Rabbit! Rabbit! Rabbit!
Today, my Family and I will eat my favorite meal of the year. The lucky New Year’s Day meal is my all-time favorite, even more than Thanksgiving. Pork, sauerkraut, brats and kolbassi, collards, potatoes and black-eyed peas, make up this yearly tradition. Cooked all together all day long, with the savory flavors blending together, all with the promise of excellent luck in the upcoming year.
This is a tradition my family has had for years and generations and judging by the fact that my grocery store has all of these ingredients readily available at the front of the store, something tells me that we’re not alone. There is going to be a lot of good luck, excitement and hope, wafting around the houses of the world today. Fresh new starts abound!
