The day got off to a late start because we stayed up past midnight ringing in the New Year.
New Year’s Day, the entire family gathered at Mom’s to make Chow Mein (or Chop Suey as the recipe says). They called it Chow Mein. Anywhoo…..
I heard it’s better luck than black-eyed peas (I hope that’s true as I forgot to eat my peas!).
Mom (Jason’s Mom) loves to gather her boys in the kitchen. It’s just like old times. I think it’s the sweetest thing ever (and they are so lucky to be close and all in the same town).
Some of the can ingredients.
There is LOTS of chopping (get it, chop suey, chop, chop!).
I am not a happy chopper. That is why I am really glad they chopped everything. I hack, I don’t chop. It’s not pretty.
Mom put Brandon to work opening cans. This was his first New Year’s with us. He was really happy Sydney came back from Mississippi. We have seen him every day since (and that’s okay, we LOVE Brandon!).
You place the noodles on the plate first.
Add chow mein (or chop suey), and enjoy!
Sometimes, I really wish I loved to cook, because I think food blogs are awesome.
But I don’t. However……..I LOVE to take pictures of food.
So, that was my New Year’s Day (chop! chop!).
How was your first day of the New Year?
