S+S Chow: A Feast Fit for The Hunger Games

So I have an obsession and it is called The Hunger Games. I have been anxiously awaiting this day for a year now. Ever since I picked up the first book, it has been over. This might surpass my embarrassing obsession with Twilight. I received several text messages late last night containing pictures of my friends at various midnight premieres. If it weren't for the fact that I am like a small child and need a solid 8 hours of sleep every night,  maybe I could have bucked up to participate. But, today it shall be. In honor of such an important and memorable day, I feel we need to celebrate in the most proper way. For all of you fans out there, you will understand. All of you others, get the books. Now. Let's continue.

Nerd Alert: I am about to nerd out on Hunger Games in a serious way. 

Perhaps we should host our own Hunger Games. Shall we? Location: Undisclosed. We cannot even know about it. Don't want to risk the capital finding out. What to bring: Weaponry of course. The following weapons are encouraged: bricks, tridents, bow and arrows, fireworks, licorice, pillows, sporks, toddlers, tiaras, toddlers and tiaras, ferry dust, spiteful looks, feathers, grenades, paintbrush, upholstery nails. Just to name a few. Ok so maybe we won't fight to the death. We are going to half ass it. What we are eating: Look below. Feast your eyes on a feast fit for The Hunger Games. All of these dishes have been concocted based on the cuisine served in Panem. Ahhh glamour. 

Told you it was going to get real nerdy up in here. Has anyone else seen it? What did you think? Rotten Tomatoes gave it a solid 88%. We shall see. Can't wait. Gotta go fashion my bow and arrow for our event. Good luck! Love, L+L


  1. Glad I am not the only obe that wants to join the masses and see the movie this weekend. Still trying to talk my sister into joining me! Happy Weekend girls!

  2. I love this!! On Sunday I'm hosting a Hunger Games-inspired dinner for my husband's birthday and then we're all going to see the movie. Not nerdy at all ;) Great menu!

  3. Hahaha I love this!! I can't WAIT to see the movies!!

  4. I can't see the recipe for Prim's Goat Cheese & Herb Bread when I click on the link...:(

  5. This is great! All I'm missing are Peeta's cheese buns!! Just finished the series and loved it!

  6. I can totally geek out about Hunger Games. If only the people in the Districts had such a spread. And, like in the Zombie Apolcalypse, a bow and arrow is truly the only way to go. I'm not sure I'll ever forgive Suzanne for Mockingjay, though. So tragic. And Prim! Teaaarrrr!

  7. Oh, I'm a self proclaimed dork! I'm going with the hubs to see it today! Can't wait! Love this post...I've seen a few on blogs but love the original take you took on it and featured the feast! Clever!

    Btw...I got the blue and white dog bowls your dogs have and you gave me the link for. LOVE them! They are the best things ever! Thanks so much for hooking me up with that information!


  8. Saw the movie this weekend and loved it!!!! Love your menu-it's too perfect!


You are the best, the most, the everything.
