Famous Movie Food
with Famous Celebrity Quotes

Thinking of not having friends over for Academy Awards night? Fuh-get about it! You need some serious group kibitzing time. I don't take the movies seriously, and anyone who does is in for a headache.

The last thing you want to overhear at your party, though, is What a dump! or Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into. Not to worry, Oscar parties and movie nights are easy and cheesy.

A few baubles and "admit one" tickets, and some great movie food in front of the TV, and you'll be able to stand proudly before your friends and say with confidence and just a little awe, You like me. You reeeeeally like me!

Famous Movie Recipes:
Take One

Okay, take two, they're small. You can serve "movie food" in the traditional sense, munchies and finger foods, or you can take your cue from the movie titles themselves and serve Meatballs, Tortilla Soup, Animal Crackers, and Fried Green Tomatoes (recipe below.) Eclectic, for sure. Sorry, I don't know how to make Duck Soup.

Whichever way you go, you're sure to hear, Please, sir, may I have some more? Don't do it, though; you know you should always leave 'em wanting more.

Fried Green Tomatoes

When they're not cast as movie food, Fried Green Tomatoes make a wonderful brunch or breakfast side dish.

6 green tomatoes
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup cornmeal
Oil for frying

Core and slice the tomatoes into 1/2" slices. Season with salt and pepper. Press both sides of the tomato slices into corn meal and fry in hot oil, turning once, until golden brown. Serve with a little aioli or plain mayonnaise on the side, if you like. Serves 6 or 8.

Well, that's a wrap for movie night and Oscar party ideas. Don't worry, though, I'll be back.

Thank you Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant, Betty Davis, Oliver Hardy, Sally Field, Oliver Twist, and Arnold for your contributions.
