Squee! It’s finally back pandas! We can’t wait for the new Game of Thrones premiere and I hope that little Geoffrey finally gets his comeuppance. Brat.
We have a few friends who are also die hard GoT nerds that come over every Sunday to watch and I’ve decided to make a meal that is inspired by the show. First up is this Buttermilk Brined Chicken with Cress and Bread Salad. I guess “cress” is the new way to say watercress? What do they have against water? I digress. I made this last night and the buttermilk brine keeps the chicken super juicy and moist, plus the dressing is delightful on the bread salad. I’m probably going to add some roasted potatoes too. This will be a perfect roast meat for us to enjoy while watching Khaleesi kick some butt!
To represent the beautiful red tree in Winterfell, I’m making this Mesclun with Raspberries and Sweet Spiced Almonds from Cooking Light and to top it off a White and Dark Chocolate Pudding Parfaits that gives a nod to those creepy White Walkers and awesome Night’s Watch that I hope will keep them at bay. I highly doubt it though lambs. Ugh, don’t they freak you out? I’ll keep you posted on how it goes this Sunday, along with my thoughts of the premiere!
