2. Having lasagna and salad and hard rolls

My husband is in town buying a bottle of Asti and we will go next door to our neighbors outdoor party. Yes outdoors in all this snow! They run a cabin rental business and have this annual party for their guests. They provide a huge fire, lots of food and drinks and this year they are having a DJ! The woods will be noisy. We never stay long and will trudge through all this snow to get back to our warm house .

9. What a great way to celebrate! My "neighborhood" is mostly rental

cabins, just a few full-time residents around here, but the cabins are owned by individuals so they don't do organized functions. Thats a great idea!

3. I think this...

Chicken sautéed with vegetables in Trader Joe's Masala Simmer Sauce with naan and probably some kind of rice. It's snowing beautifully here, and I just had to make some cookies- tried out Joy of Cooking's "Pecan or Angel Slices"- wow! Like pecan-coconut pie. Happy New Year!

6. Nice choice! I love pastrami.

I had planned on antipasto if Bill didn't find a good deal on burgundy steaks. Things get way overpriced here (a tourist town) but we got lucky!

13. going to a dinner party

I'm taking: Pumpkin soup with pumpernickel croutons. Tossed salad, mostly bitter greens but with some romaine, shaved parmesan cheese, and toasted pine nuts.

I know shrimp is on the menu--at least that's what my friend told me. Baked apples with Greek yogurt is dessert. My sparkling wine will be "virgin."

Can't imbibe as the drive is about 45" each way.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!!

15. Fettuccini with kale pesto and chickpeas.

Having it tomorrow, too. It's my New Year's "good luck" meal. My answer to Hoppin' John.

20. Do you use pork belly, fatback or sausage?

From your answer I might discern where in the south your inspiration comes from.

16. Since we are going out later, we just had hors d'oeuvre here for dinner.

Pimento cheese ball and crackers.
Steamed shrimp with cocktail sauce.
Sausage balls.
Olives.
Gingersnaps for dessert.

17. Change in plans.

Mr. Pup came down with the flu. So, it's chicken soup tonight in stead of lamb chops. Sigh. No celebrating but still, much for which to be thankful. Happy New Year!

18. I just brought home delicious cheese steak sandwiches from

a place here that I really like. It is one of two sandwiches that I have to have when we come over.

So, will get the other one on Wednesday.

21. Where did you get the cheesesteaks from?

A north of Philly dude must know.

22. I am in Los Angeles right now and this is a place in Venice.

I am a lover of the cheesesteak and was thrilled to find a place here that did them just like they do in Philly.

Now, if I could just find a New Orleans style hot roast beef (smothered in gravy), I would be in heaven.

23. If I could have one thing from NO

It would be oysters.

Oh and a good Hurricane.

Oh and jumbalia.

Oh and gumbo from Mr. B's.

Oh and alligator sausage from that place we went to on my birthday.

Oh and "The All Purpose Blues Band".

Wait... Is that more than one?

24. We brought in Chinese...

and are staying off the streets (drunks and road blocks) and out of range of crazy types (those that decide to shoot their guns at midnight).

I call this one of the biggest "Amateur Nights" of the year.

26. I made Chicken Kiev

and bundles of asparagus wrapped in proscuitto each baked with a slice of fresh mozzarella draped over them.

The herbed butter splurts out when you cut into the chicken.

The dinner was well received.
