The zombie apocalypse has just hit. Your friends decide to come to your house for the night, before heading out to the safe house the next morning. It’s a long way away, so you guys need a good dinner. You also want to make sure you get rid of all the perishables before you go. You have the following ingredients: Eggplant, blue cheese, hammour fillet, chicken drumsticks, a watermelon.
– You’re allowed one sous-chef/zombie lookout person.
– You can only use your gas stovetop. The electricity is out in the house.
– You can also use what you currently have in your pantry. Let’s face it; leaving your house to buy groceries is not an option at this point unless you want to join the ranks of the undead or be immortalized on the menu at zombie dinner parties. We won’t judge.
SO, WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
Appetizer: So I have ONLY blue cheese, eggplant, hammour fillet, chicken drumsticks and a watermelon? In that case, I would wrap the drumsticks in aluminum foil and barbecue them. That would be the appetizer, served on a bed of whatever greens are still crisp, since the electricity is out. The hot barbecue flames are also useful as an emergency weapon in case the zombies strike during dinner. The blue cheese will come in handy at this point too, as I can throw it at them (the musty smell would remind them of back home and they would leave me alone for the night, at least).
Main: Layers of quasi-moussaka by alternating hammour fillet with eggplant and tomato (do I have tomato? I can use old cans of tomato paste from my parlor). I should bake them, but since I can’t use my oven, I would just cover them with foil and cook them on the stove top.
Dessert: Watermelon sorbet. Yes, yes, I know I don’t have electricity, but my sous chef/zombie lookout person has managed to capture a zombie caught eavesdropping outside my window and – lo and behold – the creature is so COLD I managed to freeze my watermelon on his (eweee…) skeleton-y twig-like bones.
WHO WOULD BE YOUR SOUS CHEF/ZOMBIE LOOKOUT PERSON AND WHY?
Adam Levine. Um…Yes, Adam Levine. It’s the end of the world, for heaven’s sake, let a girl dream!
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR WEAPON OF CHOICE?
That blue cheese, of course.
DO YOU THINK THAT YOU COULD SURVIVE A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE?
Survive a zombie apocalypse? Honey, I may even start a revolution. Think of all the art installations I could create with those cool bones.
