I'd be careful. If you disobey a Canadian's requests, it is customary to hang you upside down and dunk your head in snow, while flogging you with a slab of back bacon. It's never pretty. Trust me...

Lol Rock! Funny! They will have to drive me to the mountains to find any snow around here! Hmmm.......Now a big slab of back bacon, they could probably find! Since most of our close friends live in Canada, I made a rule that when I am entertaining them, they are not to "bring anything" (border/food issues). We had a dozen or so folks here for a holiday party and I specifically requested that no one bring anything and if they were so inclined, to instead make a donation to their local food bank, mission or soup kitchen. So......every last one of them showed up with a cake, or wine or other goodies! Crazy Canucks! So, I thought maybe I might break my own rule.... No flogging please! ;-)

Our family tradition mandates that we have oysters on New Years Day, so I'm making a pot of oyster stew, to be accompanied by crusty bread and white wine.

Happy New Year Everyone !!
Laid back buffet and college football. Ham, scalloped potatoes, sweet potatoes, home made lefse, veggies, dipps, devilled eggs, smoked salmon stuffed baby tomatoes, herring, eventually cookies and blue berry pie.

We're having a boneless ribeye roast with Bearnaise sauce, baked potato with sour cream and a Caesar salad. A bottle of Coppola Claret to top it all off.

I'm thinking of a seafood soup as I have a salmon head and bones for the stock and some pieces of various fish and shrimp in the freezer. Not sure if I will leave it clear or make it a coconut milk base - we are really beginning to like that!
