While watching the movies again, I couldn't get the idea of mushrooms out of my head. Because the Caterpillar sits on one and they are everywhere. I also couldn't stop thinking of the Queen of Hearts' tarts, and of course the Mad Hatter's Tea Party.
So I decided, to mix some of that together, and threw myself an unbirthday party (UN-bIRthdAY PaaARrr-TEA ...big "U" big "N" accent on the tea)
This I have to admit, was not the easiest blog post I've ever done. It was in fact frustratingly brutal. I went from the original idea of a straight up Mad Hatter's Tea Party but had issues with menu ideas other than just tea and tea-sandwiches, to mushroom tarts which exploded twice in my oven, to a cake that wouldn't hold up. In the end, I pulled together what I could from the mess and thought I'd hand in my homework anyways. Trust me, some point down the line, I'll do another Alice in Wonderland themed dinner to try and make up for it.
For the mushroom tarts
I used a pre-packaged dough,
half an onion rough chopped
ground black pepper,
two large white mushrooms rough chopped
and a can of cream of mushroom soup
The cake was a boxed cake...lemon. And the icing was as well.
The good thing about food is that even if it didn't turn out to be the prettiest dish, it can still be tasty! Those mushroom tarts sound so good, and I'd happily polish off about half of that cake. ;) Thanks for the Alice idea - I had fun with it!ReplyDelete
Very true. The "tarts" were good...the couple that half way worked. I'm glad you had fun, I loved the drink you came up with!Delete
