This is a blog for people to discuss what they are eating. There is a theory that by journaling eating habits, people will eat healthier. I am trying to cook more at home and feed my family a wider variety of foods. People can just read or join as co-authors. Topics don't have to be recipes with nice photos. You can write about eating habits, special diets, culinary cultural differences, etc.

New Year's Dinner

If I don't have an incredibly lucky year it is not because I didn't follow all the New Year's traditions. First Andy was the first person across my threshold....well actually it was his dog. Next I ate everyone's traditional New Year's good luck food. I started the boys with this beautiful plate of shrimp. They promptly destroyed my hard work by scooping half the shrimp onto another plate. They needed plates in their laps not on the table. Something about the dogs trying to steal shrimp.

I was cooking something new this year. This is a traditional Japanese dish courtesy of my Bunny Buddy. She is trying very hard to help me become a cooking whiz like she is. Below is my care package. I am so lucky to have such a friend.

My care package.

The finished product. Soba noodles with dipping sauce.
It was very good and a big hit with everyone. Yummy and
I will be doing this dish again.

My plate. Steak which everyone had, sauerkraut for the Yankee side of me,
black eyed peas with a little onion for the southern side of me and the soba noodles.

Andy wouldn't eat the peas or sauerkraut so I am a little worried about his luck in the coming year. Neil didn't eat the sauerkraut which he should have because there is some Yankee in him so he could be in trouble too. But I should have a fantastic year.

Pam, your New Years meal proves what a cosmopolitan person you are!! Steak, soba, peas and sauerkraut. You rock! So cool everyone loved the soba. Eating any kinds of noodles ensures long life and black beans are lucky foods too.

Didn't have any saurkraut Pam, but did have blackeyed peas. You don't have any tradition about collard greens? Eat them on New Year's Day to bring wealth. Don't know if it works... but I haven't ever gone hungry, so it surely doesn't hurt. :)
