The new year is just around the corner and I thought it might be fun to share your New Year's Eve and New Year's Day traditions! Is there anything you do annually to ring in the New Year? Do hog jowls, collards and blackeye peas make an appearance at your house or do you have another favorite tradition? Do you take the frugal route and celebrate at home or do you go all out and party 'til dawn?
As a child, my parents took us out to a fancy restaurant every year on New Year's Eve. My brothers and I always ordered lobster tail and thought it was the coolest thing. Now, as an adult, I think lobster tail is a ridiculous price and not really tasty enough to justify such an expense. I prefer a more affordable seafood item like shrimp, which is probably what we are having for dinner New Year's Eve.
