Since the dawn of the in-home party, there have been hosts and hostesses desperately scrambling to create the perfect scene, the perfect mood and the perfect menu, often on a budget and usually at the last minute. When I was younger we were at the tail end of the Jello Mold Era, a time in culinary evolution so horrific and gag-inducing as to haunt my palette to this very day, this very moment. If you know of the horror of mixed vegetables and fruits suspended in gelatin, you have my pity.
But this post is not about Jello, damn you! It is my own little spin on the eternal and perpetually lazy treat, Ants on A Log. So what exactly are “ants on a log” you cry, shout and bellow into the night?
What Ants on a Log is:
Celery sticks with peanut butter smeared all up in that celery crack and sprinkled with fuckin nasty raisins. BUT I HAVE A BETTER RECIPE! THIS IS IT!
It requires you make some substitutions, but at this point I imagine you fine people will have your shit together enough to handle this awesomeness.
Instead of peanut butter, you will be using some guacamole.
Instead of stupid celery, get some delicious tortilla chips.
Instead of raisins, use NO RAISINS.
And that’s it, folks! Enjoy your damn weekend!
