Feast at Casa Bizarro
There’s no better day on the calendar than April Fool’s Day, to bring one’s alter ego out of the closet. Allow me to introduce Lennodo Mik, (a name straight out of the Bizarro World telephone book), who’s known around town as the hostess with the mostest Hostess fruit pies.
Lenny (that’s what friends call her) gave me a ring last night; she wanted to invite me and the Mister to a little get-together she’s hosting this weekend; I told her we’ll be out of town, but good ole Lenny insisted that I listen to the menu lineup so that I’d know what we’d be missing.
Thanks to a sale on mayonnaise at the store last week, Lenny says she stocked up on a few of those super-size 64-ounce jars, which she’d like to incorporate into all of my party favorites -- mayo-laden potato salad, devilled eggs and artichoke dip. “Shucks, I was thinking, with all that mayo, I could whip up a chocolate layer cake, too!”
Through a special connection, Lenny says she’s been able to rustle up a case of black-market cloned meat patties for the grill, and since she’s saved a bunch on the mayo, she’s not cutting corners when it comes to burger toppings. After all, what’s a cook-out without spray cheese!
Speaking of neon orange, Lenny will pay tribute to her favorite color (she had a part-time job one summer driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile), with a buffet of cheese-flavored corn snacks, including Cheetos, Cheez Doodles, Jax and Doritos. She’s even color coordinated the refreshments, with pitchers of Tang, in memory of her uncle, an astronaut who drank the stuff in space.
“You sure you can’t make it?” Lenny asked. “It’s gonna be a real hootenanny.”
“I can only imagine,” I replied. “Can I take a rain check when I get back from Earth?”
