Love you Paula and your family. We chop up an onion use chicken bullion cubs and about 3-5 halapeno peppers instead of hot sauce. Give it a try you will never go back to your old way cooking them. Love Jerry

Paula's menu sounds like what I always have. Have had it most of my 73 years and continue to do, as do my daughters. Only difference is that I'm not crazy about collards and substitute turnips. Still yummmm.

My mother and father always said to have pork and saurkraut for News Years dinner for a good year. It seems it always worked for them. So I have been doing it for 43years now. My children do the same.

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
