January 1st...Happy New Year! And, Family Traditions.
Every year I make pork, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, and hot-dogs. It's been a family tradition ever since I can remember when I was young. My mom used to make it each year and now that's what I do every year. It's believed by some that if you don't have sauerkraut on the 1st of the year you will have bad luck through out the year. So that being said, why take the chance? So now it has been my tradition for as long as I've been cooking. I happen to love pork and sauerkraut anyway. One day we will eat it as a meal, and then the following day I'll have a hot dog on a bun with sauerkraut and mustard. Yummy!
