During this program we will enjoy the following... Thousand Calorie Weenies: Someone’s aunt always brought this to the barbeque. Cocktail wieners are wrapped in strips of bacon, grilled and then served in a marinade of brown sugar and tomato paste with a hint of clove. If you’ve never tried this dish, you can probably still fit into that outfit you used to wear to the disco.
Hipper Dips: Healthy dips made from tahini, beans, chickpeas, eggplant and other yummy alternatives to cheese and sour cream make a bold statement about standing up for a healthy lifestyle, man.
‘Shrooms: Marinated mushrooms round out a party table nicely and are rarely seen today except in the occasional Supper Club. They are bright and spicy and the perfect complement to all that bacon.
Haystacks: If you took Home EC in the 70s and didn’t learn how to make these, you missed out! What is not to love about combining chow mein noodles with chocolate and butterscotch chips? And who in the world first dreamed this up? They’re still weird but they are really good, in a weird way.
If you Like Pina Coladas… And who doesn’t? Best made with fresh pineapple and fresh coconut and the nicest rum you can find. The garnishes for pina coladas can be bold works of art by themselves and this drink is very nearly as wonderful with no liquor and is then called a Nada Colada.
