Mrs. Swanson opened the very successful catering business, Mrs. Swanson’s Sweets &Eats in spring of 1976. She specializes in Swedish dishes, pies and candies, however recently she announced the addition three new hotdishes to the menu. In an interview with The Daily Boar, Mrs. Swanson said, "That hoity-toity Betty Thompson ("Cookin' It Up With Betty" TV host) will never be able to compete with my green-bean-kumquat-marshmellow hotdish, no matter what she thinks!" In another article in The Daily Boar said they had learned from a reliable source (Nosey Norma the Waitress) that Mrs. Swanson's Sweets & Eats Catering may be about to go under. Mrs. Swanson was enticed by Ronnie P. Silage to invest every single dollar she had into developing his business brainchild: "HOTDISH ON A STICK"! As reported earlier, the half-baked idea went south, and now word has it that Mrs. Swanson is nearly penniless! When asked about the rumor, Mrs. Swanson scoffed, "You can't keep a good hotdish down!" We hope she's right! This shocking news was covered on KLUK TV's "That's News to Us" (click on the video tab below) Mrs. Swanson was quoted as saying after the newscast "All coverage is good, right!"
