You're Invited: Marvel-ous Sips and Nibbles #FandomFoodies #MarvelUniverseEats


I am hosting a month-long homage to the Marvel Universe, in conjunction with Fandom Foodies, as we prepare for the release of Avengers: Endgame near the end of this month. April 26th, in case you didn't know.

I used to just say that I liked the Marvel movies because I am a permanent resident of Testosterone Land...with two teenage sons and a husband. But, it's more than that. I actually really love the story-telling in Marvel movies. It's hard to pick a favorite, really.

So, I'm inviting you to watch - or rewatch as the case may be - any of the Marvel movies and whip up something inspired.

How to Participate
Check the announcement post to see what the theme entails. Done. You're already here! If you’re already a fan of the Marvel movies and have immediate inspiration, great! If not, watch/read/play relevant things to drum up inspiration for a recipe.

Cook up something or make a recipe! Foods can be taken directly from a Marvel movie or even just loosely inspired. Do you have something you think a specific character would love to eat? Is there a food in the show you’ve always wanted to try in real life? As long as it’s related to the theme, it’s fair game. Everything else is up to you. Get creative!

Post your food photo or recipe on your blog or on social media. Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or a blog… it’s all good. Be sure to use both the #fandomfoodies tag and #MarvelUniverseEats for this month’s theme, and @ Fandom Foodies if possible! Each submission should include a link to Fandom Foodies, a link to the hosting blog, and the month’s hashtag. If you post a recipe on your own blog, submit it to the link-up.

Make Something MARVEL-ous
Back in 2017, I posted A Mutated Kyushiki + Ginger-Miso Petrale inspired by Wolverine.

 

Maybe you'll be inspired by some Hulk-hued cocktails such as my Kale Margarita or Captain America-colored Chia Pudding.


How about a cocktail that Black Widow would be proud to make...



...or a salad with scarlet pomegranate arils? Will you join me in my April quest to share Marvel-ous Sips and Nibbles? I hope so and look forward to what inspires you.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
