Chicken Curry

Curry is really awesome.  What I like about it is that it’s actually really versatile.  There’s Thai curry, Japanese curry, Chinese curry, Indian curry… Red curry, yellow curry, green curry… I feel a little bit like I’m writing a Dr. Seuss book: One Curry, Two Curry, Red Curry, Yellow Curry.  I never really adhere too…

Pot Roast

Pot Roast.  Two magical words right there.  POT freaking ROAST. Pot roast was one of my absolute favorites as a kid.  My aunt would make it for me when I would come for my annual summer visits and I didn’t even care if it was hot outside and the oven warmed up the house.  She…

Food Porn: Breakfast

I’m sorry guys. I’ve been really bad about staying on top of my posts. Ideally, I would have the movie night nom post up either on movie night or the day after. Here I am posting last week’s dinner and it’s come back around to the next movie night already. Dang. Life just gets in…

Finger Foods of Epicness

I must hate me.  Seriously, because why else would I make a dinner consisting of only finger foods?  While I loooooooove finger foods something fierce, they are one of the harder things to assemble when there’s an assortment.  But here’s what I made for movie night on January 31 (sorry it’s late… been busy with…

Lost Movie Night Noms: Arc’s Birthday Dinner

It was Archaellys’ birthday not that long ago and somehow I forgot to post the coordinating movie night nom for that celebration. Oops. I don’t know how it happened, but the week must have gotten away from me. It’s always kind of my thing to let the birthday celebrant pick whatever they want and I’ll…

Jerk Chicken Stew with Coconut Rice

Archaellys has fallen in love with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and I have to admit, it is a gorgeous game!  This, of course, influenced our last movie night and we had a pirate theme.  Treasure Island (1950) and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.  Naturally I wanted our noms to…

Sukiyaki

I was trying to figure out what to make that would go along with our Miyazaki night of Howl’s Moving Castle and Ponyo…  There are so many delicious Japanese noms that I could make work.  At first I thought about trying to figure out a gluten friendly version of ramen, since that’s what they eat…

Lost Movie Night Post

There was a surprise movie night earlier this month on December 13th that I never posted about.  I really meant to, but like I said in a previous post, there was an unexpected holiday hiatus with everything that was going on.  Sorry about that folks. The 12/13 movie night was unplanned and so was dinner….

Pulled Pork Extravaganza

Pulled Pork.  Aren’t those some magical words?  Pulled freaking pork.  Please.  Yes. It’s relatively easy to make too.  I find the hardest decision to make is how to consume it.  It was suggested that I turn the pulled pork into pulled pork poutine (thanks Lustymaid!) so that’s what I had for dinner.  Arc also wanted…

Buffalo Chicken Bites and Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

HOLY SWEET BABY JEBUS.  Mac and cheese was my ultimate comfort nom when I was kid.  I would make the blue box stuff almost every Saturday morning for myself at first thing and have it for breakfast while I watched Saturday Morning Cartoons.  And I don’t mean the sissy cartoons they show now (do Saturday…

Pho-tastic Voyage

Pho.  Is.  The.  Best.  Ever. The only thing is I always feel too full of sodium afterward because I do my best to not leave a drop of that delicious broth behind.  So in my quest to be healthier about things and knowing exactly what’s in my food, I decided to try to make my…

Roasted Carrots and Swiss Chard

These two recipes will conclude the first series of Movie Night Noms.  I like to break up the recipes so they’re not all in one post, but I’m curious if other people like this format. Comment if you have an opinion about it – otherwise I’ll assume this is fine. Roasted carrots are stupid easy…
