I used to, but not any more. This was back when my parents and Aunt and Uncle and Grandma were all living and I cooked for them. They are all gone now.

I made a boat load of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, black eyed peas, home made mac and cheese, and a veggie.

Yes. You gained ten lbs at dinner but it was so good. The same every year and this is when I was a younger woman. I guess I made this dinner from age 18 to 25 or so.

Everything was home made. Nothing from a box. The black eyed peas were soaked overnight, all that good stuff.

Nothing from a can. All fresh food. Yummy stuff. Great Southern food. Big bellied and cannot move from the table type of dinner.

Of course the black eyed peas were for good luck in the new year.

That. Sounds. Amazing. I haven't had fried chicken in 10 years at least.

It was so fun, and felt good to be having them all come together and enjoying such a meal!

I normally would only make half of that when they would all get together but this would be special.

I haven't made fried chicken like that in more than five years!!!!

Pik treat yourself this coming one and do it in their memory.

We always have a prime rib for New Years Day-even if it's just the 2 of us.

We usually do something nice for New Year's Eve dinner -- filet mignon and lobster, crab legs, a fondue party, sushi, etc.

We will do whatever caprice comes along. Steaks, Prime Rib, or maybe a Ham.

We have a 3 course fondue meal. The first course is cheese fondue with french bread wrapped with prosciutto, and mushrooms, steamed broccoli & cauliflower for dipping, served with a crisp white wine.

The second course is a broth fondue seasoned with fresh herbs from my herb garden, with steak, shrimp and chicken, as well as more veggies and a side of rice and several dipping sauces, served with a dry red wine.

And of course last, but not least, is chocolate fondue with angel food cake, strawberries, bananas, marshmallows and maraschino cherries, served with a sweet dessert wine, then later, champagne!

Mmmmm!! It's such a wonderful way to celebrate with friends around the table, having a long, multi-course meal, great wine and fun conversation.
