    Finally, a useful short to help me put together my annual buffet! How else would I have known to spread out the forks in a descending pattern? Now to go prepare a Hot Dish for my casual get-together….

    Ha ha, women used to have to LEARN how to cook, in the kitchen!…How sexist and outdated! Why don’t they use Doordash and Blue Apron, like modern empowered women of the 21st century?

    Yeah, something is weird with the normal linking I use. I’ve updated the link to go directly to the RiffTrax page. Thanks for letting me know.

    I don’t recall anything in the short about cooking, the kitchen, or sexism. It was just a goofy short about how to organize a buffet. But, hey, you be you.

    It’s not just you, Terry. Just imagine Geronimo showing her how to set up her buffet: “You think you can place that centerpiece accurately? Go ahead on…it’s your move!”

    Someone should have pointed out that the actual buffet (furniture) is behind them. BTW – What are those red rubber balls with white stuff on top?

    Those are salads in disguise. Don’t they look delish? Yeah, I don’t think so, either.

    This made me laugh out loud. Did your Tater Tot casserole also feature crushed potato chips on top, or was that specific to the Methodist church of the 1960s? (Also, hi, Yeti!)

    Thanks, DarkGrandma, but that’s not an original expression; it’s courtesy of our own lovely Mary Jo Pehl. And funny you should say that about the Methodist church — I grew up in that church in the ’60s and we NEVER put potato chips on casseroles. But I was in the South and think that might have been a Midwestern thing. (Yes, I am overthinking this.)

    D’oh! I’ve only had a chance to watch this short once, and wasn’t able to pay it the attention it deserved (that’ll larn me!). It’s still a great line. Ah, the Methodist church of the ’60s & ’70s, when the banner was a Mouth Rampant. I washed more dishes than I care to remember after Methodist weddings – I wasn’t a member of the church but got roped into service by my mother.

    Also, I don’t believe it’s possible to overthink casserole toppings – in fact, they’d be a worthy topic for a short.

    Now, there’s an idea. HOT DISH TOPPINGS – WHAT’S IN YOUR PANTRY? I envision a twenty minute short filmed in fifties colorvision so that the yellows of the velveeta and the green artificial coloring in the peas really pops. I’m a tater man, myself, but there are some purists out there who just let the blobs of velveeta floating on top blacken and acquire the texture of Naugahyde. Maybe it would be one in the series from Jam Handy, THE WORLD OF CASSEROLES.

    That line of Mary Jo’s wasn’t from this short. I forget where I heard her say or write it.

    And last night for dinner we had… Tater Tots.

    Here’s a tater tot recipe that’s easy to adjust the numbers.

    40 tater tots, thawed
    20 slices bacon, cut in half

    Wrap a half slice of bacon around each tater tot and spear with a toothpick. Place tater tots on a baking sheet with a rim, standing upright. Bake in an oven preheated to 400F for fifteen minutes. Flip tots onto bacon sides and bake eight more minutes. Flip to other bacon side and bake eight more minutes. Place tots in a dish lined with paper towels to soak off excess grease.
