"Hunger Games" Inspired Dinner

03/23/2012 by C.

Like pretty much everyone else in this country I am super obsessed with “The Hunger Games” books. The movie opens tonight at midnight but since I am old and have to work tomorrow I will have to wait for the weekend to see it. So I decided to celebrate with a dinner tonight that is inspired by the books.

I wanted to start my dinner with some grilled squirrel legs but when I went out in the backyard to shoot a squirrel this is what greeted me…

So I slowly closed the door and decided on some goat cheese. 
My main course had to be lamb stew with dried plums. 
And what “Hunger Games” meal would be complete without some Peeta bread…
If you all haven’t checked out the books please do and then get out to see the movie.

    I'll pass on anything related to "hunger"…on the dinner table! Lol I agree the books have been a real surprise….very hard to put down…kinda like a potato chip…can't eat just one….so within the last 2 weeks I have read the series. I am completely lost now….nothing to do with all this "katniss" time. You know…you ought to write a book yourself! You are a pretty darn good writer yourself. 🙂

    When the lines waiting at theaters are shown on the news, 90% of those waiting are women. Doesn't sound like a chick flick, so why is that?

    Well Grumpy, there is a weird love triangle in the books. Katniss has to pretend to be in love with Peeta for survival in the games and she has a best friend, Gale, and he loves her and initially I think that is who she would prefer to be with, but I think she starts falling for Peeta.

    So you have all of that plus the fact that Katniss is a great heroine. And I really don't hear of many men reading the books for some reason.
