Anyone Make Pork and Sauerkraut today?

Not sure where it started or when but supposedly if you eat pork and sauerkraut on New Years Day you will have good luck in the new year. Didn't this year but have made it in the past and didn't seem to do much good! :P

  • Eww, no way. We had leftover Chinese take out for lunch, and we'll be having prime rib, mashed potatoes, cheesy veggies, and some sort of salad for supper.

  • That is not something I would eat. I'll risk my chances. I know of people who do make it every year, but I can't see my picky kids eating that.

  • I didn't make any today, but usually do...My hubby worked today, so we're taking it easy on not over doing it, and making a bunch of food that will go to waste!
