Hi Judy. Michele sent me over!

In all those items, I only counted 4 that I could eat on my February/no animal products diet. And that's assuming those 4 were made with no butter or cheese. *sigh*

The menu does sound good but a little rich for my tastes. Still, even for my simple tastes and picky food habits there's items on the menu that I'd love to have. But I never got an invitation. So sad...

Oh, man. They won't even be able to ship the overflow to the poor people in New Orleans. Ain't nobody gonna eat THAT stuff! Maybe the superthin models in NYC would take it, to prevent them from eating.

Angie said...

You know some things do not taste near as good as they sound.

Bob-kat said...

Wow, that's some menu - I wonder how many courses there are!

Michele sent em over to get hungry!

What the heck is a "Smart" chicken breast? If the chicken was really smart, her puffy parts wouldn't be sitting on a plate ready to be eaten by an Oscar contender.

You had me salivating at Dungeness Crab Cake ;D

I am amazed they can serve all those different dishes. It must be a Hollywood thang.

Have a wonderful day!

Aha ! Aged cheddar. So that's where it went. They've been in our fridge again.

Carmi said...

I want to meet the person who is capable of eating all of that!

The level of conspicuous consumption - over and above the 5-figure goodie bags that presenters get, and the block-long limos, and the mortgaged dresses, and... - makes me sad. The world really is an unfair place when the amount spent on someone's hairdo would feed a family for six months.

Hello, Michele sent me.

I need pictures! It sounds good but show me what it looks like and then I could decide.

alex said...

I'm sure there must be a crazy wastage of food there. Disgusting when you think about it! Here via Michele's today!

Anna said...

Wow...that is some spread! Hope your work is going well Judy!

Star said...

How do they eat all that food while they are wearing those tight fitting gowns?

Shephard said...

Valrhona chocolate is the best.

bluemountainmama said...

Margaret said...

What a menu, do they seriously eat their way through all of that.
Cheers Margaret

Blitz Krieg said...

That is ridiculous.

Rhea said...

Why? Why? They can all afford to go out and buy dinner for themselves. They should let hungry people eat from this buffet.

carli said...

and the sad thing is, all those skinny actresses who will go to those parties and not eat!
