New Year’s Eve Traditions
The good ole country girl in me knows there are certain traditions that you just have to uphold when it comes to New Years Eve or your whole year will be bamboozled, hoodwinked, ran a muck, led astray!
How you start the new year, is how you end it!
You can not, I repeat, cannot go into the new year with a dirty house. Of course, your house should be clean all year but this is a special kind of cleaning, like the cleaning your mom made you do when on punishment. I mean, scrubbing base boards, wiping down walls, dusting, washing and folding all clothes in the house. Like good ole old school cleaning. Yes, today, I will be the Black Cinderella! Clean your house, clean your old habits and clean out the old to welcome the new!.
New Year’s Eve Meal
Now once again, y’all know I am a southern belle. M.I. crooked letter crooked letter I hump back hump back I, to be specific. So, of course one of the dishes to eat on New Year’s Eve will be good and country.
Black eyed peas are know to bring good luck into your new year! They should be partnered with green vegetables as they are supposed to reflect the welcoming of money into your new year. I don’t know about you, but I am def trying to be cashed out. Fish are lucky for multiple reasons such as swimming forward and progressing in life!
Our whole meal tonight will be black eyed peas, cabbage, corn bread and fried catfish with my favorite Frank’s Red Hot, Hot Sauce. The sauce doesn’t resemble anything for the new year besides good flavor in ya’ ear or should I say mouth. Tasty! Now, my aunt just called and told us that lobster tails are on sale 👀 We may have to slide those on the plate, too. I mean, why not? 😏
I believe in spending New Year’s Eve with those you love the most whether they are family and/or friends. This year, we are keeping it simple with my husband, son and parents. At the stroke of midnight, I will be sharing a kiss with my bunny aka Bay and my little hunny. Excited to bring in the new year with those I love the most!
Tomorrow, I will sit down and clearly finalize all of my goals for 2017. What doesn’t get measured doesn’t get done!
