On Tuesday mom got all excited because she got a package in the mail based on how happy she was we figured it had to have something edible in it, maybe a Bark Box! When mom opened it we saw a boring blu-ray box set:
|Mom you can't even eat this|
Mom explained to us that it was the season 2 boxed set of Game of Thrones. This is one of those geeky shows mom and dad like and they don't have HBO so they have never seen season two, they have read the super long books though (or at least some of them). Mom tried to tell us that we liked the show by reminding us that it has dogs, or dire wolves as they are called on the show, in it and we do like barking at dogs on TV.
We still were not very interested, food is better, but then mom told us there is a lot of food mentioned in the Fire and Ice books. According to her a lot of the recipes sound pretty fanciful Pie stuffed with 100 doves for example and some are quite revolting, at least to humans. Honey roasted mice anyone?
Sounds good to me!
But quite a few of the foods are familiar to modern viewers, roasted chicken and lamb for example, and plenty of tarts. Some ambitious and talented fans of the series decided to create recipes inspired by the books and show and have created a website, Inn at The Cross Roads, and a cookbook, A Feast of Ice and Fire. Mom spent some time looking at the website and decided to create one of the simpler meals, and best part she said we could have a taste of the bacon (we are starting to like this Game of Thrones thing).
Mom decided to make Breakfast at Winterfell, which consists of soft boiled eggs, thick bacon, buttered peasant bread, sharp cheddar cheese, honey, and black berry jam.
Perfect Soft Boiled Egg
- 1 organic egg
- vinegar and salt
Everyone was very happy with the breakfast, except the cats who where really hoping for those mice.
