OH, I love this! It reminds me of that Cher/Wynona Ryder movie "Mermaids". Remember that? Where Cher only made party food? I love that.
I love party food too! I wish I could find one of those deviled egg displays-fabulous!
I heard recently that in diners and automats in NYC in the 1940s strawberry jello had the nickname of "Jack Benny in the red" and english muffins were "Burn the British!". Oh, the good old days.
