In addition to Blogroll Amnesty Day part two...

A fellow blogger was so bold as to contradict me when I insisted upon the existence of one "candlelight salad," consisting of a banana, (and please use the straightest banana you can find no wierd kinks or blemishes, please) sitting on a bed of lettuce and standing up in the middle of a canned pineapple ring. The mayonnaise dollop on the top is supposed to simulate "wax" and the cherry (or pimento if you lack a sweet tooth) is the "fiery wick."

This was apparently a big hit amongst the "ladies who lunch" crowd in the 1920's.

There is no way I could eat that, let alone make it.


  1. Oh my God, after an hour of The L Word, that looks positively divine.

    I suggest you use paper napkins if you serve this.

    Replace that dollop of mayo with marshmallow fluff or whipped cream and I'm all over it.

  4. Wow. So erotic. Didn't know your were up for that, dear.

    Paper napkins? At least.

    For some, barf bags may be required.

    I will admit it looks tasty. Mayo and banana is always a good idea. Whip cream instead of mayo is even better. Just my suggestion.

  5. Yeah I'm in the whipped cream crowd too. For the BANANA. Sheesh.

  6. Eyewwwww.

    What is up with the fruit/mayo combination? My grandma used to top a piece of lettuce with pineapple, mayo and cheese. All the kids loved this. Gah!

    Oh, and hey -- I moved!

  7. I'm with D Cup, I have an aversion to the concept of mayo.

    Actually, this makes me think of sushi. A few months ago I was at a nice little sushi place with friends and one of us ordered a roll of something called the "salmon lover". We assumed that it was some roll that incorporated a large piece of salmon, you know... for someone who really loves salmon. When the roll arrived, we discovered that the "salmon lover" roll involves a small ball of rice with a slice of salmon wrapped around it in a conical-type shape and a dollop of mayonnaise on top. So instead of a roll for a lover of salmon, it was a roll that looked like a salmon lover.

  8. I just try not to play with my food.

    That's just rude. And where I come from that would be called, um, desert? Salad, my ass.

  10. My Mother had a paperback cookbook with that on the cover.

    hmmmmm . . . .
