Judgment Day birthday party!

Lucky me. My birthday is May 21. Have you seen the billboards, ads; heard the radio nuts?
It also happens to be one of the big birthdays. (not telling which one, but I'm still here!)

So---I want suggestions for what to serve, aside from deviled eggs, angel food cake...you get the idea.
(and yes, I've thought of all the food-diavlo dishes).

My invitations say that of the two events, mine will have better food. You can help make that happen!

  1. Did I miss something? Judgement Day is May 21? I thought we were all saying goodbye on Dec. 23, 2012. Yikes! I just lost a year.

    As to what to serve, something AS FATTENING AND EXPENSIVE AS POSSIBLE since you wont have to worry about losing the weight or paying off the credit card!

      yes ...a guy in california is claiming thats the day he figured from his interpretation of the bible...

      if u google it ..its all over the internet now...

    2. Oreos have been found to counteract the negative effects of The Rapture.

      1. How about serving Devils Food cake with your Angel food cake? See which one is more popular.

        Also, chicken diablo comes to mind. Angel hair pasta?

        Have fun!

        1. lol i thought it was the date when computers become self aware a la the movie terminator 2, which has recently passed without incident.

            t1 judgement day was aug 29,1997
            t2 judgement day was july 25,2004
            same for t3

            april 21,2011 was from the terminator tv show...

          2. but i dont think the bible says a specific day....afaik
            people/preachers/prophets..etc etc have come up with specific days for a long time

            so i wouldnt worry to much....

              I'm not worried about the end of the world! I'm worried about being funny while serving a great feast! Keep the ideas coming. I especially liked the high-calorie, high credit spread!
