Spudguns! it's been a few months since I last joined in the group, and I couldn't think of a spiffier way to cap off Hallowe'en Week this year then doing a little treat based on a movie of tricks. The Food'n'Flix selection this month is Beetlejuice, and it's being hosted by Deb at Kahakai Kitchen.
plot: When a couple are killed in an accident, the find themselves stuck in their old house as ghosts with a new family. After many attempts to rid themselves and what they consider to still be their home, of the unconventional modern family, they hire a so called expert to help. The self proclaimed bio-exorcist offers them not only a free possession with every expulsion, but his help comes at a price. He wants to be able to keep his human form, and not be confined to the afterlife. Soon, the ghostly couple find that they have more than just the uber modern family to get rid of.
I do believe I've chatted about this movie back in year one of the blog. (I know I did, I'm just too lazy to search for the post)
Notes: milk(the model truck) juice, wine, bread, garlic, coffee (mentioned) beer, chicken (wall decoration) apples, rum and bananas (the song) bottled water, Chinese food (Cantonese actually I think is what they said?) pop, tea, soy sauce, cow, chocolate bar, onions, lettuce, turnip, chives, tomato, radicchio, herbs, artichoke, green peppers, salad dressing, jam, spices, oil, ginger, fruit, peas (mentioned) Italian food (mentioned) shrimp cocktails with sauce, lemons, limes, ice, olives, martinis.
Cooked the rice, added some chopped mushrooms, green onion, and a fried egg.
Mixed it together with a splash of oil and pinch of crushed red pepper flakes and a splash of hot sauce.
I then gutted the pepper, stuffing it with the mixture and baking it for 20 minutes at 300degrees.

I love that this is a vegetarian stuffed pepper recipe, and I think you did a great job finding inspiration!ReplyDelete
Thanks. But, being vegetarian can be an issue creatively with these challenges sometimes.Delete
I think ebing inspired by the blood red wedding dress is brilliant! A great dinner there. It was a hard one to find the inspiration food wise.ReplyDelete
Thanks. It sort of was.Delete
Looks delicious and such a creative inspiration!ReplyDelete
Thanks. Something tells me I'm the only one who didn't go big and spooky though.Delete
Ah found you through Kahakai Kitchen - yes the blood rd wedding dress is inspirational. Yu can't go wrong with stuffed peppers, so under-rated these days, its one of my fave ways to eat peppers. Look forward to your contribution for November, I have just ordered the film Burnt as noone I know has it, so i had to put my hands in my pocket and buy it. Happy Food n FlixReplyDelete
