I LOVE SOUP TOOOO!!!
My partner and I make a big one every week!
We love trying different ones but, our favorites usually end up being the ones that we whip together from the lonely, forgotten veggies and leftovers in the fridge! We get the kids involved and pretend we are making a potion for some special event like, turning our neighbors into into elves or some strange creature.
Just for a night of fun though, they ALWAYS turn back at 3am. :grin1:
Sorry (soupy head), I know this is about the New Year!
Black-eyed Peas and Collards is our traditional meal. We make Quinoa and put the mix on top of it!
Our neighbors usually stop by for a bowl before they head out for their celebrations cause they can't resist!
We get a big fire going in the back yard. We read the intentions we created for the year at the last New Year's celebration and talk about our accomplishments or the goals we had that we don't even desire any more, etc. Then, we all write down what we want to release from the past year on paper, release it from our hearts and burn the paper. Then we write down our intentions for the coming year and seal them in envelopes to be put away until the next New Year's Eve celebration.
It sounds like a lot but really, it just flows and it's all very relaxed and loving.
Much like both of your traditions!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
