Oscar Night Worthy Bites

It’s Oscar night and I got nothing, except a few reruns. But these reruns are in syndication and worth it.

Where will you be tonight? At a fancy Oscar party?  What will you wear? And, who do you most want to get dreamy about?

I’m going to pull a Paris Hilton stays in to watch the Academy Awards and lay across my heavenly bed with my long haired chihuahua, Jinkie, sipping champagne and pretending my live-in maid is serving me.  I’ll have to dim the lights because my husband doesn’t look much like a gal named Hazel, but a girl can dream. After all dreams are what the Oscars are all about.

I think this is the night that all the skinny girls who starved for weeks should open their mouths widely and deeply and shovel some food in.   To you starving skinny Hollywood beauties, I say, “Who cares if Monday morning you find yourself a whole size larger. A size in the my  world is equivalent to at least six sizes in yours. Seriously, my jeans can stretch for a good six pound weight gain, but in your world, a six ounce gain deems your wardrobe unwearable. Just remember that you are an expert in shedding the weight and Monday’s starving day and 4 hour power workout will get you back in your size subzero in no time at all. Now if you happen to be one of the heftier gals in the Hollywood crowd, take one of your skinny sisters aside and show her how to eat. Don’t worry, Michelle Obama is nowhere in sight; you don’t need to include a vegetable on the plate.”

Just to get you started, here are some dishes I think are award winning with just enough fuss to qualify for stardom.

Parmesan Crusted Lamp Chops
