I have a terrible cold/flu thing and my mom is making me chicken corn soup (which is a Yankee dish and I am really excited because it is super delicious and my favorite soup on the planet), which has chopped boiled egg whites, yellow corn, white corn, dumplings and chicken in it. It is a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe which can be found here. I haven't had it in YEARS.
For New Years dinner my mom is making another Pennsylvania Dutch recipe, pork and sauerkraut with mashed potatoes. She cooks the pork and sauerkraut in a crock pot all day long and makes the mashed potatoes from scratch. My mouth is watering just thinking about tucking in to that later tonight. It is so delicious and the recipe can be found here in case any of you would like to give it a try. This recipe talks about a side of applesauce, which we sometimes have. I don't usually eat it since I stuff myself with the main course.
What do you guys eat for New Years dinner?
