Results for - What To Eat To Start The Year

1,490 voters participated in this survey

1. I'm hoping on January 1, 2016 to go out for a meal of chitterlings and black-eyed peas, as is deemed a New Year's Day harbinger of good luck in some circles (not that I believe in luck nor expect it because of what I'd eat). Have you any culinary traditions to bring in a new year?

Yes, and I may (or may not) share my tradition/s in a comment.

4. Back to the first question, do you enjoy eating chitterlings or, as some call them, chitlins? If you don't know what they are, they're pig intestines.

Oh, yes!
