The SML Oscar Menu for 2013
OSCAR WEEK PLANNING–- It’s that time again and we are excited. Although this year’s list of nominated Best Pictures presented quite a challenge for menu planning, our fearless SML contributor and follower Be has come up with courses the fit the occasion.
Check them out! And let us know your plans in the Comments section. Happy viewing and eating this Sunday. Be sure to catch our continuing Oscar themed posts all this week and next Monday.
Beasts of the Southern Wild:
Fried catfish tidbits with bathtub gin martinis
Warm salad of pigeon breasts “smothered” in a light bacon and shallot sauce
Life of Pi:
Vegaterian Indian potato pie served with “mock” tiger sauce
(Actual restaurant name in Ohio) Django western tacos with negra refritos
(As in “argonaut,” a band of heros sailing with Jason in quest of the golden fleece) Iranian lamb kabobs
Silver Linings Playbook:
Crazy, mixed up cake with silver dragees on top
Lincoln log rolls of cream cheese mixed with southern peaches and pecan nuts
Zero Dark Thirty:

If all this food is making you miserable, stop eating, lose weight and you’ll sing the praise of oatmeal and gruel.
