I rarely post a “photo blog”, but since I promised to share the pics, here it is:
Photo Blog – Walking Dead Dinner
If you have been following along you know that we hosted a themed dinner this past Sunday to welcome in Season 7 of The Walking Dead. Truth be told, the real reason we did it was for the comfort of chosen family when we knew at least one of our faves was meeting his demise. Needless to say, we ate before the grisly scenes. Here are some pics of the food, all themed to specific episodes, characters or thematic elements in the show. Do note the “Lucille” prop that the Hubs and the Offspring collaborated on for our table décor.
For me the coolest part of taking all these pics and posting some of them to my Instagram is that The Walking Dead show itself liked and commented on several of them. Color me nerdy, but that was a cheap thrill for me. Thanks to Friend Lillian for letting me know! I had several fangirl moments and high fives over that shit I can tell you!
Mama Dixon’s Veggie Spoon Bread. Just the way Darryl likes it. Thanks Friend Lillian for sharing.
Shane’s Frog Eye Salad – Israeli Couscous subs for actual frogs’ eyes in this pasta salad
The Bell Gang – smiling for the camera is not their forte…in fact they hate it.
Friends Joel and Lillian with the Offspring
The Hubs carving the meat. Check out the Walking Dead Shirt from Universal Studios Hollywood!
Bowl of Walker Blood Punch. Bulleit Bourbon and Fireball hit hard in this creeptastic punchbowl recipe.
Oh Terminus! Here is the main course of the evening – Dinner at Terminus. If you are a fan of the show, you get it.
Carol’s Casserole – my twist on Tuna Casserole. Fun fact – perfect post apocalyptic meal; all ingredients are shelf stable in the original recipe.
Carl had the celebratory can of “roof pudding” when he survived the walkers on his own. Our take on it.
Look at the Flowers Lizzie cupcakes. Flower shaped lemon cupcakes with limoncello glaze. I used this recipe as a guideline.
