My New Years Day Lucky Meal

When I was growing up we did not have a special meal for New Years Day. If my mother prepared a lucky dish, I never got the message. She may have, I was pretty lucky to marry into a family that did have a lucky dish.

I didn't feel lucky at the time because I did not like sauerkraut and my mother in law insisted on at least a bite every New Years Day.
