My friends and I have a tradition of hosting an Oscar party, with themed food connected to the nominees. It’s been a friendly competition to outdo each other with the puns, and I’m particularly proud of the year An Inconvenient Truth was nominated, and I served Al Gore’s Baked Alaska.
This year, though, I’m having a tough time…The Reader? Doubt? What can you do with that? And would it be in poor taste to serve Heath Bar Crunch ice cream for Heath Ledger’s posthumous nod?
Here’s all I’ve managed to come up with so far:
- Harvey Milk shakes
- Corndog Millionaires
- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Mushrooms)
- Kate Gimlets (though to be honest, my husband would make gimlets regardless of whether Kate was nominated)
Stuffed mushrooms, corndogs, and milkshakes do not a party make. Anyone got any better suggestions?
