Drinks, Dinner and a Movie...Perfect Pairings.
What would be the perfect combination for you today? Real or imagined...
Pineapple Wine, Roasted Peacock with wild vegetables, Coconut Panna Cotta, and the movie "Six Days Seven Nights".
Drinks- A vintage champagne.
Dinner - Venison Medallions with Red Wine Plum Sauce
and Red Cabbage & Spätzle
Movie- The Blue Max
Mrs CHM and I just did this last night.
Bad Mexican Restaurant
Really bad beef nachos and not so great margaritas
Cowboys and Aliens
But a good time out.
A few stiff juleps (in the proper cup, of course) made w/ most excellent bourbon, a full-on fried chicken/mashed/stringbeans or other greens/gravy/biscuits dinner, "Soul Food." Or (I'm reaching, this one might strike people as nasty) choco-tinis, a delicious chicken or pork mole, lava cakes, and "Chocolat." Or hey! Ouzo to start, grilled lemon/oregano leg of lamb, orzo salad, spanakopita or tyropita, and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
Chinese food (purchased with the last of the petty cash), a really big Twinkie, shots out of a flask, and Ghostbusters.
Some dry white toast with nothing on it, four whole fried chickens, a Coke, water glasses filled with wine, and The Blues Brothers.
Big Kahuna Burgers (that's that new Hawaiian burger joint), a tasty Sprite, a five-dollar milkshake, and Pulp Fiction.
Damn good coffee, cherry pie, an assortment of donuts, and the Twin Peaks series (better as breakfast or dessert than dinner).
A plate of shrimp and Repo Man.
re: Big Bad Voodoo Lou
I just had my Birthday at our teeny tiny theater...
Champagne...(lots of medium quality...volume was issue)
Homemade Triple Vanilla Cake...it was so pretty with fresh roses and nastrutium leaves
BIg bowls of popcorn and candy
and Dirty Dancing
Champers buzz, sugar rush, and naughty tingles! A perfect night!
Terrific thread idea!
First thing that popped into my head is the following:
Meal: pecan-grilled NY strip, medium rare, surmounted with a thyme-lemon compound butter; burgundy-broiled portabellas; baked potato with butter and sour cream; NY cheesecake for dessert
Drinks: Rosenblum Zinfandel, Wyborowa Vodka martinis with roquefort-stuffed spiced green olives
Movie: On Her Majesty's Secret Service
We have been having theme dinners. No drinks because my group doesn't care that much honestly.
Silence of the Lambs- Lamb stew, succotash (closest they would get to fava beans).
Sound of Music-schnitzel, spaetzel, fondue, German chocolate cake
Thoroughly Modern Millie- general tso's chicken, fried rice, peach cake with raspberries
Blue Jasmine with Stoli martinis and fresh (not bad) clams.
ETA: in San Francisco -so beautiful!
Spring water, rabbit stew, and Jean de Florette and Manon of the Spring. Poor Jean, he tried so hard to make a go of it.
Take out Chinese food, cream soda extra fizzy aside a root beer and Good Will Hunting, I'm in the mood for comfort.
