Happy New Year to all. We welcomed the New Year at home with dinner and an old movie.. First, a traditional good-luck plate of herring, a tradition that goes back to fishermen in the Baltic who were reminded of silver coins when they saw the silver skins of the fish. Then we had roast duck with rice pilaf, cherries (a very out-of-season treat), and lingonberry preserves.

Happy New Year to you too, Mae!
Happy New Year!
Looks delicious! Happy New Year!
It looks beautiful, Mae! I love the herring idea. And what was the movie?!!!
You made me laugh!
My Dad didn´t like fish but he ate Herring. Huhhhh.
I tried that once and nearly... you know.
How can a person not like fish but eat this?!
The duck looks so relaxed :-)
A Happy New Year to you!
Happy new year to you, Mae. Thank you for your kind comments on my site and I certainly enjoyed seeing what you made for your new year's dinner. Haven't had duck in a long time. Yours looks great.
I've never had duck, I may give it a try.
Lovely way to bring in the new year!
Happy New Year! It looks like your's was delicious! ;-)
Happy New Year! I'll take your word for it about luck and the herring, though duck is one of my all time favorites. Unfortunately, not Bob's.
I've never heard about good luck herring before.Apparently my husbands family does prawns every new year but I don't really have a tradition as such.
