Charles Phoenix’s Slide of the Week: The Astro Weenie Christmas Tree, My Kitchen, 2006
This is what do you get when you stud a tinfoil wrapped Styrofoam cone with cocktail weenies, green olives, black olives, pearl onions, baby dills, pineapple chunks, pummeled carrots, radishes, broccoli and cauliflower then top it with a slice of star fruit star! I just couldn’t help myself! I had to do it!
An edible Christmas tree in a 1960s slide from the Retro Holiday Slide Show inspired me to create this timeless tower of tidbits – this beauteous beacon of bites. It’s the smartest savory sampler that you will see this season!
THE RETRO HOLIDAY SLIDE SHOW begins Wed Nov 29th at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. Click here for tickets.
Here’s to your Astro Weenie Christmas Tree and YOU!
