I host a recipe club monthly

jewels_ks

Once a month I have 6-7 friends come over to my house and everyone brings a dish with the recipe. We always have a theme and the last two months have been "Soup". We are taking the month of March off due to very busy schedules for everyone and will continue in April. Our April theme is a recipe from a movie. We will be at one of the other's house and she will be showing the movie Tortilla Soup and will make a recipe from that movie. So far I have not decided on my recipe, but I thought this would be a good discussion and I could get some ideas. Is there a recipe you would like to make from a movie?

From Woody's Allen's What's Up, Tiger Lily, a recipe for "egg salad so delicious you could plotz." You definitely need a sense of humor for that movie!

Is something from Julia and Julia too obvious?

How about some spaghetti and meatballs from the Godfather?

Chocolate Eclairs from Titanic?

I was thinking in terms of Milly's Chocolate Pie from The Help.

You might review Bubba's lengthy list of his favorite shrimp dishes from Forrest Gump.

Oh, Rhizo. I think I read your first reply totally wrong. I thought you meant the rabbit in Fatal attraction :)

edited to say I didn’t think of a real rabbit. Just some take on it. Hence the asking about the sense of humor.

Annie, for the past couple of days, I've been thinking of that scene, but for the life of me, I couldn't recall the name of the movie.

I did a quick search and found this fun online article from Martha Stewart. One of the suggestions - spaghetti and meatballs - a nod to Lady and the Tramp.

This post sure has been fun to read and to get some ideas for my April recipe club. Thanks everyone! I'll be sure to let everyone know what I decide and what the other 7 make also.

Fried green tomatoes! That movie has some good food.

Two years ago I went to an event that featured "iconic dishes from all 50 states" (I can't recall the name of the event). Yes, there were crab cakes, lobster rolls, bison... but my absolute favorite of them all were the fried green tomatoes. I had never had it before and it was So. Good.

There's an idea for another recipe club meeting - recipes states are known for.

Hubby and I loved the movie Chef. I'd cook a pork roast just so we could make Cuban Pork Sandwiches out of the leftovers!

Ramen from Tampopo? Patty Melt from Three Women? Ratatouille? Something from Eating Raoul? Or cherry pie as in Lolita?

Raven beat me to it but I was also thinking of (and craving) fried green tomatoes.

If I had some green ones I would go for it tonight.
