Lucky New Year

My mother's good luck tradition for New Year's Eve was black-eyed peas.

I never liked black-eyed peas.

So when I grew up, I switched to Brussels sprouts. What are your New Year's traditions?

Here are pictures of my sprouts recipe:

These are the ingredients, except I didn't use mustard seed. I thought I had pulled out the caraway seed.


I cut the sprouts in half. For New Year's, there must be 12.


Ah, here are the caraway seeds.


Fry them gently. I think the fancy-pants people say sauté.


Being Polish, I finish off my sprouts with gnocchi.


(I'm not going to ask the color of your underwear.)
