The Holiday Buffet I


My Illinois friend Steve (not the organist) passed on a slew of suggestions from a friend of his. Consider this series a public service announcement for the blogosphere. Enjoy.

Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they’re serving rum balls.

    I had a liturgical new year party for my choir and served carrot sticks! I was the only one that ate them though…

  2. The big question: were the episcopalians next door serving rum balls?

    Can’t wait for Holiday Buffet II…!!
    Coming from the one who always puts out celery and carrot sticks as only a faithful WeightWatcher would do.
    But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t eat rum balls etc….

  4. I find lots of nice celry and carrot sticks are lovely for scooping up lots of those yummy cheeseballs and rich sour cream dips; sure beats the joy-killer of getting out the scale to weigh out the medically-approved one miserable ounce of crackers………

    Ick, carrot sticks. Precut carrot sticks, like the fake things marketed as baby carrots (but in fact are not baby carrots) are merely shaped pieces of the inner parts of woody carrots. Real nasty stuff. Fit for compost. Genuine baby carrots are marked by the thin grown of greens; unless they are local farmer product, they usually come from Israel and a couple of other places. Otherwise, flee!
