10 Meals Inspired by TV and Movies
Some delicious and others…not so much, TV and movies with great scenes that center around food are conversations that come up around our own dinner tables during the holidays. Here are 10 TV and movie-inspired meals that are certainly great for conversations around your dinner table.
With Will Ferrell starring in Elf, this classic spaghetti and syrup combination really gets us gagging. When you are thinking of hosting your next elf party remember to always include the four food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup. Don’t miss your chance to get into the holiday spirit with our Holiday Lights & Movie Sites Tour.
Rachel’s Thanksgiving. Rachel’s attempt at making a traditional English trifle was a little less than appetizing, to say the least. Whoever heard of adding beef and vegetables to a trifle but like Rachel said there is mincemeat pie. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to check out the Friends apartment where this “interesting” holiday dessert was created on our NYC TV & Movie Tour
After seeing the episode with the Soup Nazi, everyone wanted to know, does this place really exist? Could such amazing soup combinations be made? Elaine found the recipes and these soups are real. Check out our version of the Soup Nazi’s jambalaya recipe or check out the real Soup Nazi’s soup shop on our When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour.
National Lampoon’s Christmas.
Christmas dinner was certainly a little awkward with the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance by Aunt Bethany in lieu of Grace but things really got weird when Clark sliced into the turkey….ewww!
A Christmas Story.
Watching the Parker family eat their meatloaf dinner in A Christmas Story, we are reminded by Ralphie that eating like a piggy can be fun.
Do you remember the giant stack of pancakes that John Candy made in Uncle Buck for Miles’ birthday? It really brought a smile to Miles’ face.
National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation.
Eddie and Clark are in charge of grilling up the chicken for dinner at Eddie’s place. Clark asks Eddie if he needs help firing up the grill and Eddie tells him he has it under control. He just grills on the hot rocks out back. Delicious!
Rocky’s Breakfast of Champions had everyone eating half a dozen raw eggs to help with their workout program.
As everyone prepared their lunchtime meals, things got a little weird when Ally Sheedy put together her sandwich of bread, mayonnaise, dry cereal and pixie sticks.
We all knew who was in town when they ordered dry, white toast and four whole fried chickens and a coke.
