Our Heroine Asks a Culinary Question

What should I prepare for tonight's penultimate-episode-of-Lost party? Past Lost parties have featured such diverse and slightly inedible snacks as:
  • Swedish meatballs (I burned the bottoms)
  • Cheesefries with bacon (bacon = undercooked due to misread recipe)
  • Fudge brownies (awesome, but, seriously, how much talent do awesome brownies take? an orangutan could manage awesome brownies so long as someone set the oven to the right temperature for him)
  • Chili (slow-cooker version, a bit dry)
  • Supernachos (awesomesauce! but I cheated and ordered them in from Rachel's Taqueria)
  • Buffalo wings (natch, from Domino's)
  • Oatmeal Nutcake (my signature cake, delicious, but too fussy for a Lost party, like eating petit-fours at a tractor pull)
  • Fried ricotta fritters (usually amazing, but pre-Lost I burnt the outsides and the insides were runny. Still, it was fried cheese, so, totally edible)
  • Patti LaBelle's mac-n-cheese (Thank you Miss LaBelle, for my one unqualified cooking success. If this recipe was any indication, I should add 3 cups of cheese, a pound of butter and two cups of cream to every thing I make moving forward).

If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments box.

Also: props go to my amazing friend kherman for gamely eating whatever I put in front of her this season. You're a true kindred spirit!

I would go with either a dozen or so White Castle cheeseburgers or some Indian takeout.

Sweet, sweet White Castle. There is one a few blocks away from me. RMK, thank you for a stroke of pure genius!

i wish bmt had your confidence with brownies.

BMT brought her brownies to my Italian party and they were awesome. Whether she had confidence making them is another matter altogether.

BMT said...

I have confidence, but it doesn't mean I want to spoil you. Besides Frank, we're on wedding diets...so, no brownies for you!
