Marshmallows a Plenty in The New Year

I have decided that the one thing Florida is sorely missing is roasting marshmallows.
I lived there for years and I never once saw anyone roast a marshmallow not even on the nights it got cold (yes sometimes even in Tampa it gets cold).
Even just as far north at Atlanta, people know that winter time means roasting marshmallows time.
We of northern origin, we like a good burned up piece of confection.

As a matter of fact, we like them so much that not only did we have some at our trip to see the Christmas Lights at Lake Lanier that we decided we had to have them for our New Year's Eve.
Cuz you know, we know how to party.

The oldest boy got cookbooks from his grandma and he was in charge of our feast for the evening - making English Muffin Pizzas for the family.

It was a kid friendly food festival and, according to the 7 year old - the best New Years Eve ever.

And so - 2010 begins. So far it's been nothing like the movie.
