On Thursday October 7th, do not bother me.

Don’t call me. Don’t e-mail me. Don’t text me. Don’t tweet me. Don’t facebook me (is facebook a verb yet???). Don’t knock on my door.

Do. Not.

I will be engrossed in every way by the beginning of yet another hockey season.


After my family, baking and Italy, there are few things that I love more than hockey.

My hockey team … the Toronto Maple Leafs.

I will pause for a moment while you laugh/joke/point/giggle/smirk.

Pausing. Pausing. Pausing. Pausing.

Okay. Where was I? Oh yes. Thursday October 7th is the first game of the 2010-11 NHL for the Toronto Maple Leafs. As is customary for the first game of the season, they play the Montreal Canadiens.

One of the things that I’ve learned surfing the never-ending sea of blogs is that there are a lot of hockey fans out there and rightly so … hockey rules.

So to honour the start of another season, I thought it would be fun to host a hockey event.

Don’t worry. This one doesn’t have a lot of rules. Basically, if you want to participate, all you have to do is send me a link to a post you’ve put up featuring something savoury or sweet that you would serve during a hockey game.

E-mail entries to creampuffsinvenice{@}gmail{dot}com. Include your name, blog name, name of your dish, blog url and post url. The deadline for entries is midnight EST on Friday October 8th. I will post a round-up on Saturday October 9th, just in time for the first Saturday broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada broadcoast of the season.

Remember. Make whatever you’d eat or serve to your hockey buddies during a game.

Impress me!

Go Leafs Go!
