My verbal revenge on Celery!!!

Celery. It's a useless vegetable. It has no purpose in life. It is nothing but a spoon for cream cheese and peanut butter. And I refuse to ruin the taste of my cream cheese and peanut butter with celery.

Those who know me, already knew my feelings about celery; now the rest of you do. Well I broke down and bought some celery the other day. I was having guests over the house and needed to make a veggie platter. I was being accommodating. For some odd reason people like celery. I don't get it. It has no taste. The strands come apart and stick in your teeth. Dirt gets stuck in the creases. It's just gross!

Well I cut those stupid stalks into dipping size pieces and tossed the rest of the celery into the garbage disposal. Well the disposal shredded the celery and the freakin shredded celery strands got all wrapped around the inside of the garbage disposal and clogged my sink for an hour. Yes, between plunging and letting the disposal run it took one hour to unclog the sink.

I HATE CELERY!! Death to the celery industry.

And next time I am NOT going to be so accommodating. My guests will have to live with peppers, cucumbers, carrots and tomatoes.

But on a positive note, I had a lot of veggies left after the party. Nobody wanted to eat vegetables.

Did you read yesterday's post? You should.

Maybe try fennel [finocchio for us eye-talians!] an alternative to celery, especially for a party platter. You don't get as much from the bulb as you do from a package of celery [thank god!] and the little fronds are really nice to dump in your salad.
