Happy New Year from the Vincentennial Cookblog

Ooooh – look what I just found on ebay.  I feel a present to self coming on…

Just wanted to wish all my readers a very healthy, happy and prosperous new year filled with yummy dinners and fun filled booze ups.  I am planning the traditional Vincent Price Goulash for New Year’s Eve but probably won’t have a chance to rustle up much else before 2012.

Also, there is still time to enter my Diana Dors competition over at the Silver Screen Suppers website. Sooooo easy and a DVD of two early Dors films to be won.

Diana was very frank about many celebrities in her clutch of autobiographical books.  When in her A-Z themed book entitled, “For Adults Only” I noticed that V was for Vincent I feared the worst.  But of course, she ADORED Vincent.  She writes: “I only know one Vincent, and of course I mean Vincent Price, who I can honestly say is one of the greatest and dearest men in show business.”  Imagine what fun those two had together!
