"My mom's side of the family revolves around our family farm in northern Minnesota, which was established by my great-grandparents when they came over from Liechtenstein in the early 1900s. My grandpa was given part of the land when he married my grandma, and they raised my mom and her seven siblings there. By the time he passed, the farm had grown to more than 1,600 acres.
Today, my aunts, uncles, and cousins who have stayed in the area keep the farm running. For those of us who don't live nearby, it's home base, especially for New Year's Eve. It's the only holiday where the festivities can start well after the farm chores are done, and everyone can celebrate together.
Every year we plan a potluck with foods that are quick, easy, abundant, and-given Minnesota's freezing winters-warm. I stumbled upon this recipe last year and made it for the first time on New Year's Eve. It was a big hit and I've since incorporated it into my regular rotation of go-to meals."
