December 20: blondies, gumbo, LOTR Pez

For a Louisiana-diaspora dinner party, Elana and I made banana blondies with cocoa cream-cheese frosting. Then we celebrated the first night of the miracle of the oil by eating her roommate's remarkable sausage gumbo [with potato salad mixed in, which I guess is a thing that they do there] and pondering what guys who are born with cop-thick necks do when they want to become ballet dancers.

Could this Lord of The Rings Pez set be a leftover from when the movies were out, or are they still actively cashing in on them?
