Okey dokey. Here we are at the famous Passions Family Buffet Restaurant. The selection is endless. You get your plate(s) and sit down.

What's on your plate? What do you choose to eat from this endless buffet? Do you get two plates right away or get them one at a time? I have a problem with jello and salad on the same plate..call me quirky but it doesn't look right!

Jello belongs on a plate of its own. I can't stand it when my mashed potatoes mix with jello.  ~YUCK~

But I'm not real hip on jello either.

There's always room for jello... but not on my plate! I leave it on the buffet line! *G*

I love jello!! But only if it is on a plate by itself. I will have some of that frog eye salad though and some fried chicken if you please.

Hi there loves, I know I'm being picky, but desserts are only for the dessert plates, you cannot have Chocolate Heaven mixed with anything else. So please get someone to move the dessert trolley to the other side, thank you. Presentation is so very impotant don't you know!   Now this is a carvery right? Because if it isn't I'm in the wrong line.

Enjoy, and make sure that there is some chocolate moussee left for me.
              
Take care love as always

I love red jello! (on a separate plate of course!)
But first a caesar salad, hot rolls and pasta!

PhaerieChild,
Don't you like the Rocky Mountain oysters
The town of Eagle serves up every year?  I hear they're real tasty! LOL!

Romy,
I take it you've been there!!! They are good. After I found out what they were I wasn't real impressed but taste won out, so I didn't care. Eagle still has that every year too.

Well, given that I only eat jello with a frog in it (chocolate of course) it has to be on a separate plate and only after I've finished my meal. None of this lining my plates in a queue to be eaten.

Is this an "all-you-can-eat buffet"?

It's all you can eat and every kind of food imaginable is here..we are in the discussion of jello rut though....

I always get one plate at a time. Salad first. I like good coleslaw but it's hard to find. But if I find it, I usually go back for more.

well see I am a perfect gentleman at a buffet.

I let my wife go and get the screaming hungry babys food first.

once he is settled she goes gets her food cuz she is the lady.

Then she takes Melanie my 4 yr old up and they pick out food to eat.

Then matthew goes and i accompany him makin sure he doesnt get five different types of potatoes.

Lastly, I get to go and grab something and by the time i get back to the table the cycle starts again.

Yeah, I've been there a few times...

Well, I don't eat any meat, but that doesn't mean that I'm a dainty eater! I'm part Irish, so I have a plate full of every variety of potato that's ever been made. I have another plate full of Italian pastas, and then we come to DESSERT!

ANYTHING CHOCOLATE! But no nuts or cherries... too healthy!

And then I go home and make my peace with Jesus since I'm sure I'll die of a heart attack by the time I'm 20!

Well, I'm back for my second plate. What sounds really good is some Cajun Coleslaw. Love that stuff!! I have never tried chitlins either but I smelled 'em once. It was gross! Another thing that sounds good is some good old-fashioned bread pudding. And maybe some Apple Brown Betty. Yeah!!!
Oh and yes Romy...we really do eat them. If you have ever eaten sweetbreads then you know that they are sheep instead of beef. Those aren't too bad either but they are kinda small lol. Some places replace them with other cuts and it could be to scare Californians. Having lived there before, I would have to say some of the menus at certain restaurants in California are scarier than anything we have here. I won't mention any names lol. Anyway, enjoy your food.

I was trying to figure out what you meant by 'Jello' ie: pudding or jelly...

I just read what Severn has said so that is why I came in rite now as before I hesitated...

I'm being serious with ya   I've always called jelly that red jiggly stuff that you get at cafeterias usually in shapes of squares with a puff of whipped cream on top...

Jello for me is pudding and I know they serve that too but I don't like jello I like jelly...

Sooooo...
If I were at the buffet table (I usually make 3 trips to the table)
#1 I'd first get myself soup accompanied with bread on a side plate
#2 Then I'd get the main course and return with that alongwith a salad on a separate plate
#3 Once the meal is done I'd have a coffee and sit back a few minutes then go back up to the buffet for the desserts (usually 2 on my plate a chocolate cake of sorts and a mousse or sherbert)

And for the record I prefer sit-down dining "a la carte" as buffets can be exhausting sometimes  

And PDV... I luv rice crispie squares I decorate em with colored smartees

Well, I'm going to call it jelly because that's what we call jello in England.

I've got a very special way of making it too What you do is melt the jelly into the absolute minimum of boiling water. Then, instead of water, you make up the rest of the liquid with vodka or another spirit which compliments the flavour of the jelly eg cointreaux for orange.

When you eat the jelly, it melts in your tummy releasing all that lovely alcohol and then it's party time!

Karen, I wouldn't know WHAT yer talkin' about...

*ahem* Am I even suppose to be IN here? I keep snooping around with paranoid side glances to my lowly little 300 posts. ARGH! Still not a Senior Member! *sigh* I feel so intimidated.

Personally, I can't let ANY of the food on my plates touch. Cold food goes on a separate plate from hot food and runny stuff goes in it's own bowl. If cherry juice runs into my mac & cheese, I won’t eat it. Same with cherry juice and chocolate cake, or barbeque sauce and peas, etc., etc…

~ soon-to-be-senior-Beth

P.S. What’s up with this jelly argument? Jelly is what you spread on toast in the morning, not what you suck through a straw. Jell-O is a trademark name for the little giggling squares of gelatin that Bill Cosby promotes (“Hey, Kids!… why don’t we all go backstage after the show and smoke some possum?”) Hmm. Explains that freaky Mortimer Ichabod marker he had… Anyway, Jell-O PUDDING is the creamy, gooey stuff -- note that they have to add “Pudding” to the title, whereas Jell-O by itself signifies the gelatin. *cough*

Picture Pages, Picture Pages, time to do some Picture Pages, time to get a crayon or a pencil...you can play with Picture Pages, fill your day with Picture Pages, time to watch Bill Cosby do a Picture Page with you!
