Sounds delicious Steve! Better get your nap in now. Wife is working till tomorrow so snacks and leftovers for me. Crab legs and shrimp for tomorrow... maybe some stuffed mini peppers as well.

Happy new year!

I'll be the first to embarrass myself and admit to going out. The wife and I now have a tradition of going to Applebees. Very average, very uncrowded, very predictable. But as we get older, doing things a bit differently than most adds a certain degree of intimacy to an action.
 
Neighbor has a NYE party ever year... People just bring finger foods...

I'll be taking RyderD2013 RyderD2013 's Sausage Sliders

 
Steve H Steve H that sure sounds a feast! No big plans here. I am cooking pork with kraut and tomatoes for tomorrow. I loosely based that was n a post of yours in the past. Also did a big batch of a turnip / cauliflower mash with cheddar and cream cheese along with a bacon cheddar broccoli casserole. Some years I do keto fathead pizza for thanksgiving night but have been under the weather with an ass kicking cold and just tomorrows stuff has kicked my butt.
 
Morning all! What are your plans for New Years eve dinner?
I bought a beef tenderloin. Only had select left. But looks really good.
A touch over 2 pounds of king crab.
Crab stuffed mushrooms.
And roasted asparagus.
Can't wait for chow time!
Just smash burgers tonight with caprese salad, lil smokies and port wine cheese. conjuring up a rub for New years day, cause ribs were $1.99 at Winn Dick-me. (St Louis and baby back)

Zero shame in that! We've done that when we went on vacation over New Years.

Thanks Jeff! I was thinking about making the pork and kraut the other day. But. I'm gonna wait until my next batch of kraut is done.

Here's my recipe, I increased it by half...

For tomorrow, we'll have the traditional New Year's Day meal of pork roast, which I'll smoke, blackeye peas, and collards. Cooked the collards yesterday...

This is a pot full of cooked collards, but I like to have them cooked and in the freezer...
 
We had our family Christmas last night with a big pot of chili.
I did 5 bars of smoked cream cheese, pig shots, smoked meatballs with Korean BB sauce and 3lbs of sausage. Snacking on a few leftovers today and planning a prime rib for tomorrow! Of course with collards and blackeyed peas😁

Heck, we went out twice in the last few days... it's why I have some mexican and some prime rib leftovers to eat!

Can somewhat tell geographic location by the menu... I've never had collard greens, or a few other things from our southern neighbors!

Nice price! Mine was 16.90 a pound. Cheapest I've seen in awhile. You got them wrapped nice too! How thick are they? I do mine at around 2".
