Charles Phoenix’s Slide of the Week: The Astro Weenie Christmas Tree, My Kitchen, 2006

astro weenie christmas treeThis 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!

You can make one too! See the instructional video on

Post a pic of your version on the ASTRO WEENIE CHRISTMAS TREE blog.

THE RETRO HOLIDAY SLIDE SHOW begins Wed Nov 29th at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. Click here for tickets.
