Traditional New year's Meal
« on: January 01, 2019, 06:44:46 PM »
   A few modifications - some folks eat collards or cabbage for the green for money. We had Cole Slaw. My wife substituted pork loin instead of hog jowls which is probably probably big time cheating. 

   Dad said during the depression people did not have refrigeration and Black Eyed peas were one of the few foods people could raise and store through the winter and a piece of smoked hog jowl for seasoning was the cheapest cut of meat you could buy. Based on that if you were down to eating BE Peas and hog jowls on New Year's Day things had to get better  because they could not get much worse. You had already about hit rock bottom. 

  Happy New year.

We had pork roast, black-eyed peas, collard greens, sweet potatoes, and corn bread.  Also gravy.

I had never had callard greens until I went to Liberia last year. Had them almost every day and enjoyed them.

When we were raising hogs, we had the jowls made into bacon, we only used it for BLTs yummy

Had black eyed peas with beef bacon (no pork in Saudi) and cabbage for breakfast on the first. I was crew changing to travel home that morning and had asked the campboss to fix me some the dinner meal the night before. He had the night cook fix it for my breakfast so I could have it new years day. Something must have worked. Got upgraded to biz class on my first flight.  8)

Lee,

  If you work with a bunch of Brits over there they probably serve you a bunch of porkless pork and beans for breakfast. Actually they were pretty good just that beans for breakfast was not common in southern USA. I never got used to the baked tomatoes on the side. I fell in love with the Arabs hummus and ful with good thick loves of flat Arabic bread covered olive oil and sesame seeds (Kubz if I remember correctly - doesn't spell right in English) for dipping. We had that every Friday at the pier on the Red Sea there in Jeddah when we went scuba diving.

  Have a good trip and welcome home.

Danny, we ate about the same.  Black eyes, corn bread, pork trimmings from the ribs done in the pressure cooker, collard greens, apple salad and some other stuff that I did not try.  Just had some leftovers for lunch.

We don't have a traditional New Years meal, it is generally what ever left overs we have in the fridge. Yesterday, it was scalloped potatoes and ham casserole. That casserole was freshly made from left over ingredients.

Maple,

   I am sure sorry for you. Eating food like that on New Year's Day means you probably ain't gonna have no good luck at all for 2019. tsk, tsk, tsk. :'( :'(

I pretty much shot myself in the foot for the new year also. Around here its Sauerkraut and pork for luck I guess. I skipped that for the first New Years day i can recall and went to to Chiles and had some Guacamole and and a Quesadilla salad. It was good though! 
Saw you tomorrow!

WV,
I'm the only westerner left on the rig crew. One of the Aramco co-men is from San Antonio and another from Trinidad. The rest of them are from India and Egypt. My crews are from Egypt and Saudi. The arabs eat beans for breakfast but they are similar to kidney beans. I don't eat them or the bread. I try to stay pretty low carb. Most days I have a couple eggs, some salad, and either beef bacon, half a weiner (which the call sausage?), or a small serving of liver(chicken or lamb).

Lee,

   Yeah, I remember those limp wristed sausages. I think the Brits called them Bangers. The ones I remember were kind of like a Vienna Sausage without the kick. 

   I'm sorry to hear about your low carb diet. That Arabic bread was one of the best things going for them. We had another Indian/Paki place we visited where they made the best naan you ever ate. You never got over half way though one before they brought you a fresh one and the steam would rush out when you tore open the big bubbles.

We had black-eyed peas and collards, but had some leftover beef roast. I'm trying to cut back on red meat, especially pork since I now have a cardiologist :( We have beautiful collards in the garden this year!
I hope my ship comes in before the dock rots!

Wife and I got colds a couple of weeks ago so had to postpone our Christmas gathering until today, so I guess you could say New Years dinner, but not traditional.
Will be about 26 or 27 if grandsons girlfriend comes along.
