   I'll be making some stromboli, and some mini-hot dogs  in puff pastry.
I had to look it up, I thought it was a volcano  ;D

As usual I will probably be in bed before 10pm. Depends what is on TV. I cannot remember the last time I saw the new year in, probably 2000 when even my 91 (at that date) year old mother stayed up.
They were taking down the giant Christmas tree (it is obviously fake, comes apart in sections and they used a crane) in the city square (called the Octagon) this morning and the giant sound stage had already been erected next to it.

I made some mincemeat pie for Thanksgiving and am slightly ashamed to say I made it from jarred mincemeat.

They had it at Safeway, which is a huge chain. BUT, I had to enlist the help of a seasoned employee named Michael, who I've learned knows how to find everything in the store, no matter how obscure. He had to get down on his hands and knees in the baking aisle and peer into the depths of the lower shelf to find it.
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

I'm going to my friends' house for a NYE party, so I have some baking to do!  :)   I'll be making some stromboli, and some mini-hot dogs  in puff pastry.

Sounds fun!

I think I'll be staying home. I haven't been invited to any parties and I don't want to venture out on cold, icy, drunk-filled roads if I can avoid it. The predicted high here on Sunday is 4 below zero F.

In America people consider stromboli Italian food.   My friend from Italy says they don't have stromboli in Italy.

LOL

damn, that is cold!!!   I'm  not a fan of driving on New Year's Eve, but my friends only live about 10 minutes away, so I can deal with that.

Yes, when I looked it up, it said is was an American invention. As you know, I grew up in Sydney which has a huge Italian population and I also often go to Italian restaurants when travelling but as I said I had never heard of it.

Someday I want all my friends to live in the same condo or townhouse development so I never have to drive to see them at all!

and once again, America perverts another culture.  :laugh:

That would be very handy.  You can walk door-to-door and see everyone!
