Yes JIM we always have a very big dinner with some friends. We usually eat late in the evening and finish off in the new year hence the 2019 signs in the dessert tray. Here is the technique I used from thermoworks perfection vs excellent. Perfect (seriously) roast beef tenderloin | ThermoWorks
I am very pleased with this method [emoji482]
Is the black eyed peas a southern New Years thing? from what I’m reading, cause I just googled it. cause u r the second person who mentioned them to me. I know pork is. Up here pork and sauerkraut is the traditional New Years thing. At least where I live.
I was just wondering. I always thought it was just pork on New Years but years ago I learned about the sauerkraut thing up here. You learn something new everyday!
Actually it is a trinidad thing. Collard greens is for money and we leave a little bit of black eye beans in the pot usually New Year’s Eve thru news years day which means that we will not go hungry for the next year and brings good luck.
Not all things are on google. My parents on my moms side were very poor. They grew up in a one room house and slept on the floor which was the dirt. Not sure if I could put up with that but food was hard to come by and jobs were hard to find. I am so proud of them as they worked hard and are doing well for themselves at in their 80’s now.

Fresh homemade garlic and basil pasta with braised bourbon beef ribs done in the instapot Definitely a keeper. ( Santa bought dw an instapot for Christmas so this is the first meal cooked in it )[emoji482]

we got sidetracked a bit. Its cold here today so I was playing Super Smash Brothers with my son (don't judge me. . . yes I still play video games. ), and my wife made some ham bone soup. It's pretty good.
