Ask the Internet: LOST Finale Recipes?

Today’s question comes from Husband-Elect, who is still curled in a fetal position in the corner after watching the whole submarine thing go down.

Q: The finale of LOST is this Sunday. This makes me depressed and itchy. I would like to eat LOST-themed food to ease the pain. Please suggest something. NO SPOILERS.

A: We at CHG aim to please, sweet LOST fan. Here are a few Island entrees, appetizers, and Sayid dishes (say it out loud) for your viewing pleasure. We promise, they won’t make you want to Hurley.

(Readers, add your own ideas in the comment section! It'll be punnerific!)

Shephard’s Pie: This upstanding concoction of fish and Dharma potatoes should sustain and heal the party until about halfway through the meal, when your friends experience a philosophical flip-flop and reassess the meaning of the pie. (Thanks to Little Kitchen Mouse for this one.)

E-Clairs: Happily, this dessert starts off sweet and presents well. Sadly, with the addition of nuts, it quickly degenerates into a visual crapheap. (Serve with a side of bonebaby.)

Sun Jin Fizz: Warning: prolonged mistreatment of this pretty, pleasant cocktail will result in explosions, being caught in a bear trap, and a humbling journey through time and space.

Miles to Go Before I Dip: At first, you won’t understand the function of this sharp, rather disagreeable onion dip. But it’s served in a bowl where you can see the ghosts of other onion dips, so that’s cool.

WAAAAALTed Milkshake: While this youthful drink initially seems promising, it will be kidnapped by pirates, at which point it will quickly age out of its usefulness.

Juliomelet: This capable, attractive dish will quickly become your favorite meal, until it’s inexplicably sucked down a mineshaft. Then it will become someone else’s favorite dish on the show right after this one.

Lady Lockes, Stock, and Two Smoked Muensters: Imagine your favorite chicken broth topped with pungent frommage, served with creampuffs for dipping on the side. Does it make sense? No. You will eat it anyway.

Kate FlambĂ©: This isn’t actually a recipe, but the Husband-Elect assures me that many would like to see it happen.

Readers, whatchoo got? The comment section is awaiting your ideas for LOST-themed food. We need something for Sawyer, Desmond, Charlie, Ben, and all the rest, brotha.

Want to ask the interweb a question? Post one in the comment section, or write to Cheaphealthygood@gmail.com. Then, tune in next Tuesday for an answer/several answers from the good people of the World Wide Net.

Smokey Baby Back Ribs: You won't know what hit you

I posted this on the Facebook link before reading the whole entry. What about "Pain Perdu" (aka "lost bread")?

Diane said...

Please give me the recipe for Kate flambe! Or better yet, give it to the writers...


I am having a pun-free "Lost Finale" dinner event.

Chelsea said...

How funny! And yes, I agree with Diane, I am ALL IN FAVOR of a Kate Flambe finale.

For the S6 premiere, I made Hawaiian stir fry. This time, the plan is to order sushi, but we may do the stir fry again- it was delicious! I don't know about "Healthy", ha. But just fry up pork, pineapple, shallots, and macadamia nuts (I used cashews, I couldn't find macadamia) with hoisin sauce. Delicious!

I'll let you in on a little secret: LOST is just a rip off of Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island--even the exploding/destroyed submarine.

That sheperd's pie sounds delicious!

Simple recipe. Take one Sawyer. Put him on a platter. Serve him to me.

For Ben, how about some Sesame (Benne) seed wafers for cookies?

Robert Irvine from the Food Network show "Dinner Impossible" is going to be doing a show based on the Lost show. It airs Wednesdays at 10pm/9c.

How about some lemon poppy-Sayid (seed) muffins? :)

Lost Humor said...

haha, I love the 'Food' logo with the Lost lettering. What is the name of that font?

Kris said...

These are sweet, you guys. I especially love Lemon Poppy-Sayid Muffins. Oh - and how about Key Linus Pie?

@Lost Humor - I'm not sure, actually. It was a cut and paste job with the official logo.

Corned Beef Hatch- Dharma potatoes and corned beef come together in this recipe. Must take a bite every 108 seconds to avoid the dish imploding into itself.

Bradsasylum said...

Eggs "Ben"adict- Dharma eggs, muffins and ham put together for a seemingly nice breakfast...but it will then turn on and give you food poisoning you when least expect it.

donkey wheel pasta--so good it just takes one bite to feel like you're somewhere else.
