Serenity Fruity Oaty Baked Oatmeal #FireflyFeast

6 comments:

The other day, Jessica posted a fantastic Firefly themed cake for this month's Fandom Foodies theme, hosted by Fictional Fare.  I couldn't resist getting on in myself before the end of the month.

The challenging part for me is that this month, my husband and I have been doing a slow reintroduction of foods after a month of Whole30.   This means that most days we're still strictly Whole30 but every few days we can have one food family along with our meals to see how it makes us feel.

The catch is - ONLY one. So on dairy day, you can have dairy products, but still no grains, or on non-gluten grains day, you can't have sugar, etc.


I had some baked oatmeal on my mind for our non-gluten test day.  It's something we've both always enjoyed, and while I would normally add some maple or brown sugar to it, I thought we would enjoy it fine just lightly sweetened with fruit.

And that's when I had a thought - in the movie Serenity, River Tam is triggered into some insanely skillful violence by a subliminal message inside an animated commercial for a snack called Fruity Oaty Bars.  The movie snack would be full of sugar, rainbow colors, etc - things we can't eat!

But if this was a popular snack inside the 'civilized' region of space, you can bet that Kaylee might find a way to make something sort of like it - especially if she managed to get ahold of some actual fruit!

So - unsweetened, homemade Fruity Oaty Bars it is!  I used this recipe from The Real Kitchen and Beyond as my starting point.  And if you want it a little more sweet just drizzle a bit of syrup or honey on top, and enjoy.

Serenity Homestyle Fruity Oaty Bars
makes 8' x 8' pan

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp five spice powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsweetened chunky applesauce
3 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups total diced fruit and nuts, as desired
(I used fresh strawberries, blueberries, and walnuts)

Preheat oven to 375F.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Add applesauce, and stir to combine (It will be thick).
Mix in water and vanilla, and stir.  Add fruit and nuts and stir again to combine.
Turn into an 8' x 8' baking pan and cook for 30 minutes or until settled and lightly browned.
Let sit for at least 10 minutes to cool before serving.

This reheats nicely and even tastes fine cold.  If desired, serve with a little milk of your preferred type and a scant drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

Guaranteed not to cause your genius teenager to turn into a lethal yet graceful killing machine. Probably.

Happily sharing with Fictional Fare's #FireflyFeast : Celebrating the Food of Firefly and Serenity.

Mock Tournedos #FoodnFlixClub

8 comments:

February's Food n Flix Club movie is Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, the award winning Stanley Kramer classic from 1967.   The cast for this movie is incredible, including movie icons Katherine Hepburn, Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy, Beah Richards and Isabel Sanford.

This FoodnFlix round up is hosted by CulturEatz and you can read her announcement here.



The plot itself takes on the confrontational subject of racism and societal disapproval of interracial marriage at a time when this was a hot button issue. To put it into the context of its time, Loving vs. Virginia, the Supreme Court Case ending laws outlawing interracial marriage, was decided while this movie was in post production, and it predated by several months the landmark Star Trek episode featuring the first interacial kiss on TV (deemed so controversial, it had to occur in the context of Kirk and Uhura being controlled against their will by a powerful entity).

I hadn't seen Guess Who's Coming to Dinner in decades in spite of being a huge fan of old movies, and being incapable of passing up Katherine Hepburn or Sidney Poitier whenever I come across them, I was looking forward to having an excuse for a rewatch. I was interested and a little nervous about how badly it might have aged.


Make no mistake - it is a product of its era in several ways, but it's not awful, either.  I'm not going to get into a huge critique, just a few small observations.  The plot concerns a young adult woman (Joey Drayton) bringing a man she plans to marry home to meet her parents, who are social conscious liberals and who, she's positive, will have no issues at all (in fact she appears to be unaware of why anyone might, so I can only conclude that in the 60s, Joey was attending boarding school on Mars).

She surprises her mother and tells her she's in love and wants to marry - and mother is delighted! And then her future son-in-law walks in and she is shocked and distressed to discover he's African American. And the rest of the movie has to do with the various people in the household, including Poitier and his character's parents, all struggling to come to grips with this shocking situation without destroying two families.  This happens through a series of well-composed conversations that manage to be a round up of the various perspectives brought to  this issue by people of good will.

All of which is both interesting, very well written and acted, and a  little cringe-worthy (I am old enough not to also be deeply puzzled at why they're acting like it's such a huge deal.)

And make no mistake - this is not a bunch of people who are proudly racist - they're liberal and in at least an abstract sense, they do not believe that white people are better-than people of color. They're 'just concerned' at how everyone else might react when racism goes from being an academic subject and a cause solved by a fundraiser to being a matter of importance to their own daughter and future children. 

What really got me though, is that almost everyone is all very distressed by this bombshell Joey dropped on them unexpectedly.  The parents are shocked and concerned about what the neighbors will say, what sort of difficult life this will cause for them both and their future children.

But none of them seem shocked or bothered by the fact that the couple met TEN DAYS AGO while on vacation and that she's barely into her 20s and he's well into his thirties.  Apparently, none of that is potentially problematic at all!

Equally eyebrow raising is that the two fathers and the prospective groom have conversations about their 'approval' - and if Poitier doesn't get their blessing, he's going to dump her and leave.

Guess who wasn't a part of that discussion? Joey!  She doesn't even find out that's a possible complication until she's upstairs grabbing her suitcase to head off to Europe with her soon-to-be husband.

The mothers also seem to occupy a secondary place.

While they can and do appeal to their husbands from an emotional perspective to remember what it was like to be young and in love, it seems to be a given that the practical details of 'can this marriage work?' belong with the menfolk.

Maybe that's to be expected, since an ongoing motif is that everyone forgets to clue Tilly into how many people will be at the table, causing her to scramble all day to prepare them a special meal.

All of which is to remember that the era's feminist movement was not on the public radar until the 70s.

The Sixties, man!

With that, let's turn to food in this movie. In spite of its title, there's not as much as you might think! This was what I noticed:

  • Tilly makes some coffee and sandwiches for the new arrivals - looks like egg salad or tuna.
  • Joey asks Tilly for a special dinner, to include celery soup, tournedos, and her 'best pie'.
  • Tilly orders steak from the butcher. Later, she'll need to order more when more guests are added.
  • Tilly is seen preparing peas and lettuce.
  • a bar in the living room with decanters (likely the usual range of expected liquors in the cocktail-heavy 60s). 
  • Mel's Drive-In where Spencer Tracy wants ice cream he had once but can't recall. The carhop reels off the list of what they carry: "Daiquiri ice, honeycomb candy, cocoa coconut, Jomoca Almond Fudge, Mocha Jamoca, PB&J, banana mint? Boysenberry sherbet..." and he remembers - yes! He wants 'Oregon Boozenberry'.
  • The parents go out for cocktails and have what looks like an Old Fashioned and a Martini.
  • At home, arriving guests are offered drinks - Scotch and Soda, Bourbon, Sherry for the ladies.

And after all that, the movie ends before they get to the dinner table!

As I was casting about for inspiration, I looked up what 'tournedos' are.  They're filet mignon wrapped in bacon. Oh, those!  I priced filet mignon. I thought about the huge size of that bag of steak Tilly had, and gasped.  We are not wealthy enough for that dish.

And then I tripped over mention of MOCK Tournedos, which are bacon-wrapped ground beef patties - and realized I grew up on this stuff, although I have no idea what we called them. And I grew up in the 60s, so this is authentic.

Therefore, I'm pretending I didn't hear Tilly order steak, and declare that THIS is what a typical family having a special company's coming dinner would have made in 1967.  I know mine would have.

Mock Tournedos
Serves 4

1 pkg sliced button mushrooms, finely chopped
1 Tblsp olive oil

1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 Tblsp Worchestershire
2 Tblsp brown mustard
1 egg
salt and pepper

4 slices bacon

1 cup chicken or beef broth
2 Tblsp mustard
1 tsp rosemary
1/3 cup tomato sauce or V-8 juice

Saute chopped mushrooms in a large saute pan with olive oil until soft and cooked through.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, sauteed mushrooms, Worchestershire, mushrooms, seasonings and egg, working with hands to mix together. (make sure everything is combined well, but don't overwork or your patties will be tough.) 

Divide meat mixture in quarters, and shape each quarter into a patty about 1" thick.  Wrap a piece of raw bacon around each patty, securing on two sides with wooden toothpicks.

Pan-fry the tournedos in the same pan used to saute the mushrooms, about 5 minutes on each side.  If need be, add a little olive oil to the pan, but remember the fat from the bacon will soon be liquefying, too.

Once the tournedos are cooked as desired, remove them to a plate and let them sit a few minutes while preparing a sauce:

Combine broth, mustard, rosemary and tomato sauce (or V-8, which I used because I was drinking some at the time) in the pan used to cook the tournedos.  Scrape the pan and simmer for a few minutes (tasting to determine if it needs any additional seasoning) to let it thicken slightly.

I served this with steamed mixed vegetables and roasted potatoes, adding the sauce to the potatoes and meat.

We really enjoyed these and will be making them again, whether it's for company or not!



Now I'm off to go read CulturEatz round up of dishes inspired by Guess Who's Coming to Dinner - I can't wait to see how others tackled this movie theme!  You can join me here!

Got Luck? It Could Happen to You! #MovieMondayChallenge

8 comments:

On the last (or fourth) Monday of each month, a group of bloggers participate in a #MovieMondayChallenge, hosted by C'mon Get Crafty! We decide on a topic, genre, or specific movie to use for inspiration and everyone gets free reign to create something wonderful!
 
This month's challenge was. . . . "LUCK! Everyone was allowed to choose their own favorite film so long as it was inspired by the challenge word.

I knew as soon as I saw the word 'Luck' which movie I wanted to work with - 'It Could Happen to You', the 1994  romantic comedy set in New York City that opens with the narrator, Angel, introducing the main characters as Frank Sinatra reminds us that 'fairy tales can come true, if you're young at heart'.



The short summary of this movie - which is very much a fairy tale - is this: Charlie Lang (Nicolas Cage) is a good cop who lives a simple yet satisfying life with his wife Muriel (the hilarious Rosie Perez) - who may be leading the same life but is experiencing it very differently. Where he sees cause for contentment, she sees not enough and she resents him for his lack of ambition for more.  Muriel dreams of more, and she fully believes she deserves more.

Muriel tells Charlie to buy a lottery ticket, which he does.  This is where it gets complicated (well... complicated by feel good rom-com standards) - at a coffee shop, he and his partner get lunch and Charlie realizes he doesn't have enough cash to leave a tip.

He tells the waitress, Yvonne (Bridget Fonda) that if he wins the lottery, she can have half.  For obvious reasons, she figures she'll never see that tip - even further confirmed by a series of terrible events that had already happened to her that day, including a leech of an ex who has drained her account, forcing her to declare bankruptcy.

So of course you know what happens next, right?

Charlie wins the lottery for $4 million and gives her half!  Of course, Muriel isn't at all happy about that turn of events - she was busy freaking out about needing to share the money with other winners before she'd even had a moment to enjoy having won - when she learns he gave away half, she is livid and before long, she demands a divorce. And all the money.

Meanwhile, Charlie and Yvonne slowly develop a relationship with each other as they share their new wealth with their community in NYC, and deal with the conniving Muriel trying to get all of the money in the divorce.

Seems clear the connection to luck, doesn't it?  Except it isn't so much about the lottery, even if that is a catalyst for the plot. Each character has a different idea of what luck is and how it relates to them.

Charlie begins the movie from a place of contentment. He believes he has enough and enjoys doing things for others and spending time with the kids in the neighborhood.  As the movie goes on, we see the money mainly disrupting that contentment until he figures out how to use it to fulfill the dreams of people around him, in large and small ways.  Charlie truly enjoys making luck for others.  

Muriel is the opposite.  Muriel wants more... of everything.  She believes it is her destiny to be very wealthy and as soon as the money comes in and Charlie starts giving it away, she ditches him and starts campaigning to keep it all.  Muriel believes in luck - and she believes she's owed a lot of it.  In reality, we only ever see her happy in brief spurts when she's shopping or rubbing shoulders with other wealthy people, and that happiness is fleeting because there is always more she doesn't yet have.


Yvonne has yet a different idea about luck - she believes she has terrible luck (and to be sure, a lot of unpleasantness has happened), and is convinced she doesn't deserve anything good to come her way.  Tellingly, while Charlie was giving money away and Muriel was spending it as quickly as possible, her first act after receiving $2 million was to treat herself to a jar of macadamia nuts.  She's definitely not thinking 'big', but she has a deep understanding of the value of small comforts.

Meanwhile, in spite of her belief that she not only has bad luck, but in fact is bad luck, she buys the coffee shop and keeps working there, welcoming customers on the margins of society. She make a regular customer, a man with AIDS, feel welcome and cared for, and sets up a table in Charlie's name, where anyone can get a meal for free if they can't afford it.

Without sharing the entire plot - at the end, each of these characters return more or less to the financial state where they began - no one permanently joined the ranks of the very wealthy.

But there were happy endings for Charlie and Yvonne and not so happy endings for Muriel and Yvonne's ex, Eddie.  Not because of money, but because generosity and kindness make Charlie and Yvonne feel as if they have everything they need, and so for them,  a return to a normal life of connectedness to their community and each other is, truly, lucky.

Maybe luck, good or bad, is a way of seeing what happens to you and how you respond to things beyond your control.

So, I had several ideas for this one including making a menu board inspired by Yvonne's coffee shop, or even trying to make some homemade scratchers that could be tucked into a card.

But - in our own turn of events - after I signed up to participate, my husband and I decided to look for a larger apartment, and we found the right one - but it meant needing to move soon instead of mid-summer as we'd thought we would.



So we've been decluttering, and I truly have neither the time or space to do anything crafty right now.  But what I did have was this fun  little cross stitch piece I'd finished that I'd been meaning to put into a frame - Plum Street Samplers' free chart, Got Luck?  This is a fast stitch, suitable for beginners and can add a sweet little touch to your March decor.

I tucked it into 4" x 6" IKEA Ribba frame that I hope to paint as soon as I'm able. (I also need to take it out and iron it before it goes into the frame permanently)

I bought a bunch of these IKEA frames, in varying sizes, a year or so ago when they were on sale - they're very handy for quickly framing needlework, and the thick sides means they can stand freely, making them very versatile.

Now let's see what everyone else was inspired to create for this month's #MovieMondayChallenge!! If you'd like to join our Facebook group, you can request an invite here.

Simon's Chocolate Protein Birthday Cake #FireflyFeast

16 comments:


This month's Fandom Foodies theme is Firefly/Serenity, hosted by Fictional Fare - I am a huge fan of Joss Whedon's all-too-short series, so I had to get in on this.




In the Firefly episode “Out of Gas”, Kaylee makes Simon Tam a big birthday cake to celebrate. Unfortunately, she couldn't get a hold of any flour, and it's mostly protein, well, essentially what they just had for dinner. But she tried to make it as chocolate-y as possible!

Earlier this month, I celebrated my own birthday, and decided to make my own version of Simon's birthday cake.

Now, because I am not wandering the known 'verse, getting my hands on flour is actually pretty easy. Shiny!

But in the spirit of the episode, I decided to try my hand at a new type of protein rich frosting, made from tofu!

Here is my interpretation of Simon's birthday cake, with a little homage to Kaylee's favorite fruit!

Simon's Chocolate Protein Birthday Cake

Cake:
2 ¼ c all purpose flour
1 2/3 c sugar
¾ c softened butter
1 c dark cocoa powder
1 ¼ c whole milk
1 ¼ t baking soda
1 t salt
2 t vanilla
¼ t baking powder
2 c dark chocolate chips

Chocolate Protein Frosting (see below)

Preheat oven to 350* F. Grease bottom and sides of a Bundt pan.

Beat all ingredients with an electric mixer for 3 min on med/high speed. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour into the pan.

Bake for about 50 min, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

Chocolate Protein Frosting
1 package soft tofu
powdered sugar to taste (I used about 2 cups?)
½ c dark cocoa powder

Mix tofu, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar until everything is a smooth, frosting texture. 

Spread frosting on cooled cake. 

For an added Kaylee touch, you can put sliced strawberries on top like I did!

Blubarb Pork Tenderloin #FantasticalFoodFight

16 comments:

It's time for another round in the Fantastical Food Fight, where bloggers get together to create a dish using the challenge ingredient.  For February, the challenge was RHUBARB!


I'll admit I had no intention of participating in this one.  I have, I think, eaten rhubarb once, in a strawberry-rhubarb pie which was good, but not anything I was ever tempted to recreate.


I had no idea when it even came into season - I assumed around the same time as strawberries due to the frequency of that pairing, but it turns out that late winter/early spring is Rhubarb Season, at least in some areas.  Maybe?  Rhubarb confuses me.


Even if I could find it, this wasn't going to be the month for me to try it - rhubarb is very tart, which means it takes a lot of sugar, I'd assume, and we're not eating more than tiny amounts of sweetener this month.

Add to that that about all I actually know about preparing rhubarb is that it looks like celery but definitely isn't, and some part of it is poisonous to eat, and I have very little idea of which part. (I believe it's the leaves, but the idea is intimidating.)

So, I let this month go, thinking I'll just leave rhubarb to the professionals.

Then, while I was enjoying a gift set of jams I'd received from Blue Owl Preserves (reviewed here), I impulsively set aside the jar of Blueberry Rhubarb Jam.  I could do something with that!

It didn't take me long to decide what - I just looked over my upcoming menu plan (don't you love how very organized that makes me sound??  It is all lies.) and thought to my self, 'Self? What would this jam be good with?"  Self answered - pork tenderloin!

Easy enough - I used  the jam to make a glaze for pork tenderloin, and it turned out to be flavorful, tart and delicious!

You can, of course, use any variety or brand of jam you have available, but if you enjoy rhubarb, I highly recommend Blue Owl Preserves with its fresh Colorado grown fruits (as a side note, if you use the discount code RCH, you can take 10% off).  This variety, affectionately nicknamed 'Blubarb', tames the tartness of the rhubarb with brightly sweet blueberries, but still packs a delicious punch. The combination used with the pork reminded me a lot of a good cranberry sauce.

'Blubarb' Pork Tenderloin
serves 4

1 pork tenderloin
2 tsp. olive oil
seasoning to taste (I used Penzey's Florida Seasoned Pepper)

2 Tablespoons Blueberry Rhubarb Jam
1 Tablespoon white balsamic vinegar

Heat oven to 425F.
Coat the tenderloin in oil, then season well, patting seasonings so they stick.  Set in a rectangular baking pan (you may want to cover with foil, for easier cleanup).

Bake tenderloin for 20-25 minutes.  The internal temperature will be 145F when it's done - check with an instant read thermometer.

While the pork is baking, combine the jam and vinegar in a small saucepan, stirring to combine. Let this simmer gently for a few minutes to thicken.  If desired, some fresh blueberries would be wonderful, simmered in with the sauce.

Remove the sauce from heat until the pork is nearly done.

Spoon sauce over pork, spreading to cover, and let the pork cook just a couple more minutes to set the glaze.

Remove from oven, and let rest at least 5 minutes before cutting into medallions.

I served this with baked sweet potatoes and a large salad with blueberries to start.  The glaze was intensely flavorful and the tartness of the rhubarb took center-stage.

Pork tenderloins are a great way to get a reliably delicious meal on the table quickly, and I will be happy to serve it this way again - still leaving the rhubarb preparation to professions, of course!
