New Year's: A time to get everything out of your system. Start fresh, set new goals ... oh and if you're Haitian or have a best friend who is, chow down on some good 'ol Soup Joumou!! I don't know about you guys but the dumpling is my favorite part! Not only is it mouth watering but it's a big part of the Haitian culture. The soup represents the defiance of the French colonial regime. It is to celebrate independence and also good luck! Bon appetite and from Island 360, Happy New Year! 

In case you don't have access to some Soup Joumou, here is how to make it yourself: 

Ingredients

1 lb. cubed beef stew meat
1 lb. chicken
