Food of the Apocalypse
« on: June 29, 2010, 12:01:19 PM »
Stuff to eat while playing ApW.

Vx Brand Apopalyspe Corn
Make popcorn.
Melt butter.
Add a whole bunch of sriracha hot sauce.
Stir sriracha hot sauce butter through popcorn.
Eat.

Elizabeth's Prepackaged Feast
Gather together food-like products that might survive an apocalypse. Must include Twinkies, Spam, and cheap junk candy. Fish paste in a tube is good, as is Cheez Wizz. Display on something incongruously lovely, like an antique silver platter or a tiered cut-glass cookie tree. Make up increasingly bizarre combinations as the night wears on. Bonus points to whoever first tries Twinkies with Fish paste icing.
 

Bret's Salsapocalypse World
Ingredients:
2 large tomatoes, cored
1/2 large white onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 sarrano pepper
1/2 cup cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper to taste
Dump it all in a food processor and blend to desired chunkiness. Just as tasty chopped up with a knife and dumped into a bowl, just more time consuming.

This is great!
I love the prepackaged feast idea.

I'd also love to see a recipe or two for something that would end up resembling some kind of horrible mess that you'd make out of pig-maggot meat, roaches, and pigeons, but actually tastes good.

Anyone got anything?  :)

Well, my salsa can look like green goop when it spends too long in the food processor.

Gonna be honest -- I like the green goop salsa best. I don't like chunky salsa at all.

Somehow it had never occurred to me that I could make food that looks on purpose like something horrifying.

Pigmaggot stew, here we come.

I tried to search the site for more about pigmaggots. Are they the size of witchetty grubs and taste like pork? Or are they like pig size and taste like grub?

Oh, and I found this, which sounds like it would suit AW. Just substitute some apocalyptic sort of bird thing.

As Elliot and Sebastian were the inventors of such, I asked: Pigmaggots are the size of smallish pigs with short legs and wrinkly grub-like bodies, and they taste like really, really fatty pork. They do have distinctly piggy noses and eyes, though.

Sick and tired of having to wait for Bret to force feed it to me every monday night, I made my own tonight.

Lemme just say I think my marriage is secure for another three years thanks to this salsa recipe.

I added an avocado like Bret did last time.

Avocadogasm.

I can't think of a time that adding avocado to something has made it worse.

I actually once made avocado icing for a birthday cake. It was fantastic.

Crystal and I made Apocalypse Corn before watching the Book of Eli.

It was good. Really good.

Personally, I didn't find the spicy to be overwhelming, though my tolerance to such things is admittedly high. (Crystal eventually bailed out.) My youngest son Justice really liked it, too, when he got a chance to try it.

I made Salsapocalypse World + Avocado, with homemade tortilla chips (cut those small corn tortilla's into 1/4ths, heat olive oil, throw 'em in with some salt til they're crispy), and OMG. Amazing. Thanks, Bret. This is a keeper, can't wait to feed my friends.

Red Bull + Coca Cola = Nuka Cola?

Also,
I once mashed up some of that orange and white flaky 'seafood surprise' stuff with avocado and mashed potato and pan fried to approximate 'mirelurk cakes'. Was rather tasty! (especially with a chilli paste)

If you had the facilities and time to do this as a break in your AW game it would be fun to present the table with a bunch of canned food -- labels removed and appropriately dented, and let your friends cook the meal on an open fire in the back yard.

Oh my goodness Chris, that is a truly fantastic idea!

'It's the Apocalypse! Everybody bring a tin can with no label to a surprise party (What's the surprise? It's what's for dinner!) at our house..."

I think I have to do this.
