If you're like me, you enjoy any excuse to make a themed dish. Well the Oscars are this Sunday, and if you're planning on attending a party or hosting one yourself, here are some fun ideas to keep your snack foods and drinks festive and appropriately THEMED. Themes are fun.
The Descendants - The Corpse Reviver
Get it? What, insensitive of me? The film makes light of her coma, so why can't I? And that was no spoiler, you find out George's wife is a vegetable within the first 15 seconds of the movie. So if anything is going to revive a corpse, or a snoring group of Oscar party attendees, it's gin, lillet and absinthe.
The Help - Fried Chicken Bites
I mean, you knew I was going to say fried chicken, right? But bites! Finger food! Genius!
Or you can serve little spoonfuls of Crisco.
The Artist - Black and White Cookies
I was trying to think of something that makes absolutely no sound when you eat it, like an oyster slithering down your throat, but then if you're like me that's always accompanied by a loud "HOLY F THAT WAS GOOD!" I know, I'm classy. So I thought (Carson thought) of these - vintage, elegant, classic.
Moneyball - Mini Pretzel Dogs
What better way to celebrate a baseball film than by combining two ballpark staples: pretzels and dogs. Please make these and tell me all about them in detail.
So, anyone have any ideas for the rest of the films?
Hugo, The Tree of Life, War- don't you dare suggest we cook horses.
