Last night, for those of you that missed it, we had a movie night. Shaun of the Dead!
My idea, my inspiration, as I was watching, was that from now on, I will create a food item to eat while watching the movie. It'd be fun if you follow along - I'll try to pick recipes that anyone can follow using things they have in their house. The recipes should tie into the movie somehow....
So, I'll do an example post for last night.
I went to London a while back and went to many a pub (even though I don't drink, the atmosphere in UK pubs is totally different than bars in America (/opinion). One of the things I could NOT get enough of was apple chutney with cheddar cheese sandwiches. Oh God they were so good I couldn't stop eating them for roughly 12 bucks a pop (thanks weak dollar to Euro conversion!)
So, in fitting with Shaun of the Dead (the Winchester?!), I present: Grilled cheese with apple Chutney.
Start with the chutney. This will make a lot and you can save it for a few days and have these sandwiches all the time.
1 pound apples (peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch pieces - about the size of your thumbnail)
1 small onion (diced)
1 tablespoon garlic (chopped)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
Real easy, just throw everything in a bowl. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 45 minutes to an hour (until it is nice and thick).
