sounds good, but id rather just drink the Guinness and eat chips and salsa :]
Embrace the noodles of all cultures, and listen to Bob Marley... He's good, and his hair is like noodles

The old new year traditions of my family come from the Deep South - ham, collard greens and black-eyed peas. My Grandmother used to eat 365 black-eyed-peas on each New Year's Day, one for good luck on each of the days of the coming year.

I don't follow these traditions at all. I don't even like black-eyed peas. Bleah. We started a Renaissance New Years Party withour friends, and I do a really kickin' Renaissance-style venison stew for it every year. No New World ingredients at all, only things that would have been available in 1500s England. No potatoes, no tomatoes, no peppers, noting like that. Only things like parsnips, turnips, carrots, raisins, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, cubebs, herbs, wine, etc. The party has grown, and when one lady asked her teen-age son if he was coming, he said he was if there was venison stew again!

I tend to make one of my repertoir of dishes that can be put into a big pot and people can help themselves. I did moroccan lamb tagine this year, and just left out bowls, flat bread etc so people could dig in.
