  • Why do people like hard candy?

    I don’t see what the big deal is. Hard candy is more of a chore then something to enjoy. Every Halloween I throw all my hard candy away or give it to my grandpa. I don’t see how sucking on an individual piece for 10 minutes is remotely enjoyable. Biting it hurts your teeth I mean what is the point?

  • How much should I charge to do in-home p rivate catering?

    ... to serve dinner and walk around to serve appetizers, pour drinks, clean up constantly and maintain food (by myself, I might add) for a p rivate  party in a home for 50 people ? I was asked quite a bit last year to cater parties. I do not provide anything other than myself and sometimes my husband for bar tending services. I work extremely hard and diligently and I know I'm worth my time. I don't take breaks (shame on me), but want to make sure everyone is happy and satisfied. Last year I charged $50 an hour. I do not feel it's worth it at that rate. I'll be gone 3 or so hours and have killed myself physically. Thoughts? What have you paid? I'm being told to up it quite a bit if I'm the soul caterer doing it all.

  • How to keep costs down for a party?

    I’m trying to throw an awesome surprise party for my parents 25th anniversary. I’m only 19 and in college so money is super duper tight. We’re using my grandparents house as a venue and I’m doing food myself (taco bar!) and I was going to get a helium tank and my own balloons. Any other ways to keep costs down but still have an awesome party!

  • My sister in laws food is awful?

    You know how people say white people cant season food? It's my sister in law. She's white people. She puts salt and pepper in her bland potato salad, brings stove top to Thanksgiving, fries up some of the greasiest, chewiest cube steak (also salt and pepper seasoned) and the worst gravy (made with the gritty stuff in the bottom on the oil after she's done frying her cube steak). Problem is she thinks shes the best chef in the family and always trying to give cooking advice (that usually is just a harder way to do something but she feels its creative). She's over my shoulder all day in the kitchen on Thanksgiving, harping advice that I ignore entirely, only to swoop in 30 minutes before the meal to make her precious stove top (no other stuffing is as good you see) and acts like she saved the day. It drives me nuts and I dont know if I can take another year of it! Advice, funny stories from your Thanksgiving, good recipes for strong drinks? I'll take anything I can get to stay sane!

  • Can someone please check my essay for parallelism?

     I'm a full-fledged adult, but I get as excited as a little kid when it comes to my birthday. I know that on that special day, I will receive gifts, eat cake, and be having a party. I start my birthday by sleeping late and to make my favorite breakfast—pancakes and sausage. After breakfast, I like rollerblading, biking, or to run through my neighborhood. I pretend that people know it's my birthday and are coming out of their houses to sing to me. (No one ever does, but it's a great fantasy.) Returning home, I shower and am getting ready for my party. I have to fix the food, set the table, and be decorating the living room. Inviting my close friends and to serve a special meal is a big part of the celebration. After dinner, everyone sings "Happy Birthday," we eat cake, and I will open my presents. Then we listen to music and are telling silly stories about the past year. If I live to be 100, I will always have a birthday party and have been nice to myself on my special day.

  • Slimming world christmas snacks?

    Best answer: Celery and dip, baby carrots and dip, and so on.  Yogurt is an interesting one you might give a shot- sounds weird but man is it good.

    You can grill/fry veggies which is different enough to be a treat- not for everyone but I love grilled cucumber.  Shicobobs are a good option with lots of veg and some healthy meat like chicken.

    Fruits or fruit salad- watermelon, cherries, oranges, mangos, whataver.  Cut em up and mix em in a bowl or stab toothpicks into cubes depending on how fancy you're trying to be.

    Roasted nuts.
