    Mrs. Patmore, those cookies sound very intriguing. Wasn't there a cookie or dessert thread going? Perhaps your recipe is not a family secret and you'd share?

    Dhs dad's side was Jewish, and his tradition growing up was lox and bagels Christmas morning. We did that for the first time this year, and it was great.

    I made this dessert Old Fashioned Chocolate Icebox Dessert Recipes with DS today. My grandmother taught me how to make it - though more like a log and no vanilla. We decided it would be a great tradition for NYE/Day so we are starting that this year as well!

    I feel some homey. Homish. Momish.

    Im feelin it too TFZ!!! And wow, your younguns ate lox on bagels?

    I like the idea of making a traditional new years meal too. Black eyed peas and collard greens - eat simply, live richly - somebody told me this is why you eat that on new years day. And maybe add cornbread, because its southern. Hmmm and pineapple upside down cake, because its also southern, and very popular in this house.

    And that frozen whipped cream log looks yummy, we may try that for new years eve!

    For xmas, it's always been vegetarian sushi. Crazy but true. We start making tsukemono (Japanese pickles) a few days before. As the kids get old enough they learn to wrap the rolls.

    That's our tradition. My family of origin would turn their nose up at it. DW family is Armenian. Lots of good food around the holidays - dolma (stuffed grape leaves) is a favorite.

    Eclectic. We do music, math English, history/geography/culture, Russian and science. Lots and lots of reading. I blog at suzukiexperience.com

    MNDad good luck with the move! You're posting so hopefully that means you're not stuck in customs, right

    Sushi is a grand thing to make with kids. In point of fact their little hands are better suited to rolling, or at least that's the way it works in this family.

    NEW YEAR'S: Anyone have any traditions to share? For New Year's Day we usually do Hoppin' John but that's mainly because field peas (of which black-eyed peas are one) are stupid easy to grow here and we therefore have a lot. I also usually make something cheesy and sloppy to help with that post-champagne thumper of a headache that I tend to get....

    We haven't developed any traditions yet. On NY's day My mom used to make lots of appetizers, hot and cold dips, to have with crackers, cheese and other snack foods. We used to watch the Rose Parade live and come back to the house and watch it again on TV until the Rose Bowl was on tv.

    I liked that, except that I am the only one who like those appetizers and no one is interested in the parade except me.

    Sure EJsMom. These are the rum nog cookies:

    I don't put sugar sprinkles on top, but I do put a little nutmeg on top (an option listed in the book this comes from, the Veganomicon). The cookies are very sweet without any sprinkles.
