food that your friends , neighbors and relatives always bring to Christmas partys , New Years Eve parties that takes very little of their time or money to make. Food you can tell was prepared either the day before or bought at the supermarket 10 minutes before they got there like sugar cookies matching the event. Usually poor in taste and in nutrition.
bean casseroles , warm salad with hard ramen noodles in it , gross barf looking bbq chicken dip , pretzel stawberry crap , store bought sugar cookies , a ring of fishy tasting cheap shrimp.
My wife is making home made chicken soup for us to eat because if she dont we will leave starving because we wont eat that hunky food everybody else is bringing.
