So this episode was about “Games on the Go,” and Jared joked that I should just do Hot Pockets for the recipe. Of course he meant the crappy freezer Hot Pockets that you put in the microwave – you know the ones, they are never fully cooked in the center. Yeah THOSE. Yuck. But, I decided it was still a fun idea. You can make homemade pizza pockets with crescent rolls, and they’re pretty good. I don’t know how “on the go” they are, though you can put them in a container and warm them up for lunch
Space...the final frontier. Well, the episode this recipe was paired with was a space-themed episode - and while the closest any of us will get to space is playing a space-themed board game or sitting back and watching Star Trek on television - I thought we should do some variation of space food. I read about what foods astronauts eat in space and I learned some interesting things!
I think pot roast is tasty just about any time of the year. It's easy to make and all you need it a crock pot. Put everything in at the beginning of the day, let it cook nice and slow and then you've got an amazing meal at the end of the day to serve to your gaming friends when they all come over! Eat up while you decide what you're going to play, or take a break from playing games to have a nice dinner!
In the fall and winter, I absolutely love the butternut squash and autumn squash soup you can get at a various restaurants. My favorite is probably the autumn squash soup they have at Panera Bread, so I have scoured the internet for recipes that are copycats for those delicious restaurant squash soups.
Here in Southern Indiana, the first full week of October is Fall Festival - it's a street festival that is touted as the second largest street festival in the United States (second only to Mardi Gras). It has rides and like five blocks of food booths with about any kind of food you can possibly think of (and a lot of foods you probably never would have thought of).
It's fun to play games on your lunch hour isn't it? At lunch time, you want to play small games that play in 30 minutes or so and you want a food that you can make quickly and take with you...a nice "on the go" food, right? So, here's a tasty recipe for a Miso Soup you can make at home, but it's got some noodles and extra veggies added in to fill you up and keep you going for the second half of your work day! Enjoy!
Stir-Fry is always tasty, but this one comes with a bit of a fruity twist! When we got back from GenCon, we were excited to talk about all the games we saw and played. Of course we ate a lot of food there too...but we didn't make any of it. So, we picked a few recipes with a common theme - dragon fruit - because GenCon always uses images of a dragon. It's kind of their mascot.
GenCon 50 2017 was the first sold out GenCon ever and in honor of that momentous occasion, we selected a recipe with a whole lot of ingredients. This overcrowded stew takes a bit of preparation, but it isn't terribly difficult to make.
We ran a contest on our Twitter and asked our followers to send us their favorite burger recipe. The winner, DanielleK, sent us this one and she won a copy of the game "Burger Up" and its expansion "Burgers of the World." We chose this one because it is so unique, but when it came time to try it...we were both a little worried it might be too weird. But...it was pretty good!
We both really enjoy Korean Bulgogi, which literally means "fire meat," though you can ask for it to be a little less on the spicy side. When we went to St. Louis for Geekway to the West, we got to go to Seoul Taco where we got Korean tacos and they were delicious. So when we got home, we decided to share a recipe with you so you could make your own version of these delicious tacos at home!
