Okay, now who wouldn’t want that ? I was thrilled, squealing with delight when I got this precious item for review, and just before The New Avengers Age of Ultron is released. Yes, I will make a something special for movie day. I’m not sure what but I’ll be posting about it. Maybe the Shawarma ? It is a dish they ate during the credit scenes in a New York place.It sounds like a Gyro I can veggie it up easy, substituting potable mushrooms or roasted potatoes for the chicken

I watched with my kids and read through some Dr. Who comics/show my daughters and I made fish sticks and custard, we sweet vanilla custard. It was edible but not good, okay it was kind of gross. Thank the gods there is a recipe for it and the custard is not the vanilla infused type I made but a mustardy sauce that sounds fabulous. I am quietly throwing away the previous recipe my daughters had. 😀

Silent Green, remember that movie ? It freaked me out when I was a kid and left a whole generation with green cookie jokes. There is a recipe for Soylent Green cookies ! I am going to sit my adult children down and watch this movie with them with a serving of cookies. Mwahahhahahhahaa. Why did I not have this recipe when I was a teenager ?

Desserts- on my must make quickly list- South Park’s Salty Balls, Kingdom Hearts Sea Salt Ice Cream, Pokemon’s Poffins. I will be running an extra mile everyday to keep the weight down I see.
