With the holidays approaching, parties will be thrown, bad sweaters will be worn and those little cocktail wieners will be served. 

Much to our foodie dismay, we will be invited to meals that we will have to choke down and smile, while saying things like, “Gee, that tasted good” all while thinking, “Why is he serving the same tasteless hors’ devours year after year?”
