5 Favorite Fiction Inspired Foods [5 Fandom Friday]

5 Fandom Friday - Fandom food

So this weeks prompt is ‘Favorite Fictional Foods’ but after racking my brain I only came up with one thing. I dislike changing prompts, I feel like I’m cheating, however, I’d rather answer with something than skip a week. Hence the change to food inspired by fiction.

Butterbeer Latte

There’s a lot of Harry Potter inspired food out there, especially for Butterbeer, but this one attracted my attention more. I converted to coffee a few years ago as I wanted to see if caffeine helps and yep, I became addicted. On a positive note it has really helped deal with the fatigue side of my health conditions. The reason for this little side story is that I got hooked on Mochas and flavoured coffees, so I love finding recipes for different coffees especially easy ones like this. I’ve yet to try it myself and would love to hear if anyone else has.

I found a lot of awesome Star Wars recipes (check this and this out) but this one stuck with me because it was so different to the others. There’s plenty of cakes, biscuits, drinks and so on, and then there’s this treat mix. It takes a bit more effort, yet it’s such a good idea for parties or even if you’re just having a Star Wars marathon with friends.

My fiancé is obsessed with minions, so this one is for him. Although if he ever sees this recipe he’ll probably want them made ASAP. I chose to feature these because the shape and design of the minions faces/heads means that you could be very versatile with these cupcakes. You could even make up your own ones easily enough.

How cute are these little guys?! I love the range of different ingredients used to design them.

When Frozen came out it won the hearts of kids and adults, and there are a tonne of Frozen inspired recipes from cupcakes, to blue hot chocolate and cocktails. This one caught my attention because it is so pretty and sparkly, which ok, is a given for anything Frozen related. This was just so different from the other recipes I found and looks simple to make as well.

Summertime

Summer

The post exam entry is always a nerve wracking thing to write because reflecting on myself in an exam isn’t easy and I worry about being too over confident, about jinxing myself. They went ok, pretty sure there is no failures in there. As for actual marks? We’ll see.

So that is the end of year three and there are no resits in sight for the first time in 3 years. It is a glorious feeling knowing that my summer is completely free. It’s even better knowing that I go on holiday soon for two weeks in Tenerife. I can’t remember the last time I was away for two weeks. One week always feels too short, so really looking forward to the longer break – and after this year it feels very needed!

I have a lot of things I want to do this summer; explore, make home made ice cream, write, online projects – and I’m doing my best to do things in my own time without getting totally overwhelmed. One thing I do plan to do is blog more often; hopefully once a week and I have a growing list of topics I want to write about. The biggest of course being the new Star Wars films and the debunking of the Expanded Universe – but I won’t get into that now. It deserves and requires it’s own entry. So while I have lists of things to do this summer I am trying to spread them out and not stress when I don’t get things done.

I will still be working in the school until about the 20th June when the year ends and all going well will be back in August for the new year. I need to confirm it with the department head but I really want to continue doing it if I can. I’ve gotten so much out of it and I love it.
