Pawhuska Hometown Foods launched its first holiday buffet last Saturday with an array of delectable foods and drinks.

"We plan to host a free buffet each Saturday now until possibly the first of next year where guests can sample our wide assortment of holiday foods, drinks and desserts," said Michael Hood, produce manager.

"Today we are featuring apple cider, a veggie tray, assorted beef, ham and chicken sandwiches. Our meat tray features Little Smokies, cheese burgers and chicken sliders. One of the most popular dishes is our home-made garlic and onion cheese ball. Desserts include brownies and banana cream pie."

"We used to have an annual open house but thought our customers would enjoy this weekly concept," said Woodhams.
