Yes, we’re still playing everyone’s favorite Golden Globes game: What dish would the Golden Globe Movies be if they were food? Have you joined? There are no rules, making this an extra fun addition to any Golden Globes party fun. So far, we’ve got Inception as Cherpumple, Black Swan as a duo of Nutella Pudding and White Chocolate Blondies and The King’s Speech as Cherry Lemon Scones. Now for 2011 Golden Globe nominated The Social Network.
I didn’t exactly select one dish for this movie. Well, I did, but with 8 variations. Here’s the story. We’ve got macaroni and cheese. Why? Well we’re talking about a movie made about college kids. College kids who set out to create a social network for other college kids. And what dish is more college appropriate than Macaroni and Cheese?
With me so far?
I couldn’t decide which mac and cheese recipe was most fitting for this movie. Sure, we’re talking about college kids… but college kids who went on to make, um, a GAZILLION dollars. And sure Facebook was originally intended for other college kids… but raise your hand if your grandma facebooks you. Not just for college kids anymore.
College kids probably eat macaroni and cheese out of a box. Or maybe they hit a place like California Pizza Kitchen for their Mac and Cheese. But I have a feeling that Mark Zuckerberg and many others on Facebook dine on more refined versions of mac and cheese, like the Triple Cream Mac and Cheese with Bacon pictured above.
With so many people on Facebook these days, there was no single macaroni and cheese recipe that worked for all. So choose from these Eight Ways to Make Macaroni and Cheese.
There you have it.
We’re almost done folks. Only one more movie to go!
