Things That Used to be Exotic
Ah, here we are again, planning our New Year’s party menu. What to serve, what to serve…
Thank goodness for Hormel! We can have an international dinner!! Just like that wild Italian food that we’ve loved from Chef Boy’ar’dee…it’s authentic!
Those “far-away land” dishes that are among the hardest in the world to make – Beef Stroganoff, Chicken Cacciatore and Kottbullar (Swedish Meatballs)! And in cans no less! What a joy!
Just pop a few tops, dirty a few saucepans and warm up those chafing dishes…your New Year revelers will think you’ve slaved for DAYS!! Of course, being the ultimate housewife, you’ll have to make sure you get rid of all the cans (what with 26 people coming, you’ll need a few cans…), rub some flour on your face, pull down a piece from your Italianesque hairdo and fool them all!
Oh, and don’t forget to stock the bar. No one notices the food after a few martinis.
Isn’t it nice living in this “jet age” where we can get all these exotic foods right in our own supermarket? What did we ever do before?
