Nothing Says Merry Christmas Like a Hot Dog Holiday Tree!

I love the internet, for this holiday season it has bestowed the hallowed “hot dog holiday tree”! And that’s not all, how about a Christmas tree fashioned out of TUNA FISH!?!?!?

OK, I know you think that is a joke, but it’s not – I mean, I FOUND IT ON THE INTERNET SO IT MUST BE TRUE….LIKE THIS:

A PICKLE TREE!

I did an investigative search online and found so many wacky food ideas from the past – yes a multi-colored pickle tree, so how about this helpful recipe for green olives to cover a “cheese and pimento porcupine?”

You see, there are so many unique ways to feed your family this holiday season – how about greens beans and a meatloaf bundt?

Yes, that looks disgusting, but it was a real, honest effort for a company to encourage you to use their canned products for a festive meal – this product is for those who just don’t want to be bothered:

A Christmas “Dinner!”

I think this is close to brilliant perfection, but what if it gave you a toothache? Well, in the past there was a simple, easy answer to your pain:

COCAINE!

Well, that was clearly a “simpler time”, wasn’t it? I want to thank The Huffington Post for their great story of retro holiday foods – see more classic pics here:

And don’t forget, celebrities love holiday food as well!

Yes, Mrs. Damon Runyon was shilling a hot dog dinner, and lots of celebrities extolled the virtues of cigarettes as a holiday gift as well!

Of course, you may want to serve good food this holiday season, and I have you covered for that as well:

gigot d'agneau recipe

Here is a “Gigot D’Agneau” – a Provencal leg of lamb recipe! Check it out here:

So you can eat Provencal – or you can have a hot dog tree!

Let me know if you serve that, or perhaps a “tuna tree” this Christmas!
