Black-eyed peas with smoked ham hocks, cornbread, maybe with a pork roast and collard greens.

A neighbor and I are thinking of having a small get-together for watch the first PAC-10 football games on Friday nite. We will be wearing our 'go DUCKS' shirts even though the screwed up big time and for the first time in 11 years did not get to go to a bowl game. (guess they will be at Autzen playing in the eider bowl) and have like a tailgate party in her apartment with champagne instead of beer. All finger food, i.e., she is doing a crab dip, Lil somethings in BBQ sauce; I am making a cream cheeze, gorgonzola, brandy cheese ball rolled in roasted hazelnuts; and sweet and sour meatballs; also there will be mixed nuts and a vegie tray with my ranch dressing spiked up with a little Franks Hot Sauce.

Sounds good, have a good evening, and take care to arrive home safely.

Lots and lots of alcohol Oh and about 10 rellies play the pipes.... it can be VERY noisy come 12 o'clock!

OK. You lost me on a few things.

Hogmanay? I need some explanation on this one. Is this what you call New Years?

Black Bun. Sounds intriquing.

Finally, Clootie Dumpling. Sounds like it has something to do with sex! :twisted:

Thanks, we will have an early dinner. In the islands, New Years is a big time fireworks night. Gets so bad sometimes you can't see your hand in front of your face.

I did not know that, now I can say this day was worthwhile as I learned something. BTW had a great time in Salem, I was the chef again, and everyone loved the food, nothing left, ate it all. We went thru 3 bottles champagne, one cold duck, two chardonay, and I had one glass of brandy then my daughters MIL to be brought out the danish akaviet, I went to bed, they killed teh bottle. They had a headache, i did not.

Nothing planned for dinner or the night, yet. Dinner will probably be simple. I think I have eaten enough rich food lately. I have been wanting to have the family over for tostadas and the works. Maybe I will do it that night if the weather is good.

Moose Milk is a wonderful thing...

Eggnog in an amount of about "3 US quarts", 40 "Imperial ounces" (1.1 liters?) of "good" dark rum, a cup of good "half and half" cream, a healthy dosing" of nutmeg, dozen or two ice cubes, and little cups or mugs to serve it up in...
