Do you cook a big brunch or dinner on New Year's Day? How about New Year's Eve? What are some of your favorite foods to serve?

Homemade pozole, tamales and bunuelos. Washed down with a healthy glass of Rompope.

Just went a bought the pork last night. Making chili verde and chili rojo tamales this year. Ordered for pickup on Thursday the whole nixtamal for the pozole and fresh masa for the tamales. Plenty of cinnamon and sugar for the bunuelos. Got left over bottles of Rompope from Christmas.

I honestly enjoy New Years more than Christmas when it comes to spending time with family and friends. People will start stopping by on Friday and it will continue till Sunday morning. Its more relaxed, people are not as harried and there is no present anxiety.

Yup I like New Years better than Christmas for getting together. Even Mass is not a hassle.

I can relate....I enjoyed Thanksgiving more than Christmas because no gifts were involved.

I'm doing Gravlax, seafood and salad for a long lazy lunch/dinner for anyone who is around. A few bottles of Champagne will be on hand to wask it down!

I bought a whole salmon just before Christmas and filleted it to make the Gravlax - it's now being cured in the fridge... hope it works!

A ham for us, probably with some sides like mac and cheese and potato salad. It's just the four of us so there's no use in a big fancy meal.

Until I met my husband I grew up with just appetizers. I think my mom was tired of cooking by then. My husband grew up with the ham, black eyed peas and greens thing. So, for him, I'm going to make greens, black eyed peas, corn bread and pork chops.
