We were discussing what is served for dinner on New Year's Day this morning. As a girl who's never lived anywhere but Georgia, I can't imagine having anything other than greens (turnip or collard) with cornbread, black eyed peas and chicken and dumplins. And, since it's my Daddy's birthday, we always have chocolate cake.

Since we are located close to Atlanta, we have lots of transplants - some who don't even know what collards are. So that got me thinking, what are y'all having for New Years Day Dinner?

Pork & sauerkraut is a traditional New Year's Day dinner. It's supposed to bring good luck. Not sure if I will make it or not though. I LOVE sauerkraut, unfortunately it doesn't love me......

Pork & sauerkraut is a popular New Year's dinner in PA as well, especially with the PA Dutch folks.

We have always had steak and shrimp. A lot of people here do that on New Year's Eve but we always save it for New Year's Day.

That's what I'm having! And dumb me spent way too much at the market yesterday and forgot to buy the stupid pork chops:P

Pork Chops slow cooked with kapusta (sauerkraut) and served over smashed potatos with scallions.

We're having ham & black eyed peas & cornbread. Not sure what for dessert - maybe a brownie pie or something like that.

Originally from Bama, we always have black-eyed peas(represents the silver for the year, collard greens for the green backs with hog jowl and pork chops for good luck, and of course cornbread. I just love southern food!

Posole (hominy stew with green or red chiles and pork) is a traditional good luck New Years dish in New Mexico, so we'll be having that, along with black eyed peas!

The family tradition has been that we have oyster stew and ham sandwiches on New Year's eve. I'll drive 3 1/2 hours to my brother's house tomorrow night solely for that purpose. When I was a boy, we had corned beef and cabbage on new year's day on the theory that eating something green would assure you had money all year. It never worked.

We usually have "Good Luck Soup" on New Year's. I can put the pot on and watch parades, games and not worry about cooking. It's similar to the packages of 15 bean soup that you can buy in the store except it just uses certain beans with ham, onions, tomatoes, peppers and seasonings. Is really good! Have cornbread to go with it.

This year we will be celebrating Christmas with my husband's family so will have ham, turkey, brisket and all the fixin's.

My husband makes awesome collard greens, and just pulled the last from the garden before it iced here last week.

Pickeled pigs feet is great for New Years...you can also use their nails instead of toothpicks.

That's what we always have too. My mom said that the sauerkraut was to help rid your body of the previous night's poisons.
