Robin Wood's birthday occasionally falls on Thanksgiving. Some years ago, she decided it was unfair that there were always vegetable trays, but not trays of things people really wanted on a feast day.
So, we invented the Twinkie Tray - yes, in addition to the vegetables, we sliced up all kinds of bad things and served them with dips made from cream cheese and chocolate.
There was never a shortage of desert here on Thanksgiving - for one thing, we all loved to bake. But we had previously waited to the end of the day like civilized folk. The twinkie trays went out with the appetizers.
Sugar shock set in early that year!
