"They" should sell it in smaller quantities - a few bundled stalks. :) Mostly, I think of celery as peasant/comfort food, paired with carrots, onions & potatoes (inexpensive ingredients) in chicken soup, beef-like stew, in stuffing/dressing or in a pot pie. My Hungarian Grandma would make chicken soup or flanken (cooked on the stove all day long), using carrots, onions, potatoes and celery - with borscht on the side. I love vegetables, but celery is not my favorite (bland and boring), and too much left over. I do like salad, soups and sometimes slaw.
Chicken soup or chicken and dumplings gets my vote:
I do like Waldorf salad(s), and they can be changed out according to taste, i.e. subbing bleu cheese, or adding cherries or pomegranate seeds, subbing yogurt for mayo, adding grilled chicken strips or leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
An interesting read re Waldorf salad:
(Serve some black and white cookies or Babka for dessert.)
P.S. I was never a fan of raw celery. I remember when it was a "dressed up" diet food/snack.
Stir-fries are a good bet.
But, I just don't know what to do with those tossed salads & scrambled eggs. Frasier has left the building. lol
