Oscar Menu
I love creating an Oscar menu to match the Best Films. This year, there's seemingly a large number of nominated films, 10 to be exact... and since unfortunately haven't seen over 1/2 the films, this task of creating a menu seemed quite daunting. Thank goodness for the internet! I did a quick search and found a great article full of menu ideas on Best Picture Inspired Menu Ideas. I love their descriptions. For True Grit, they provide a "Feast Fit for Cowboys." For 127 Hours, "Food as Fuel", and Toy Story 3, "A Day-Care Finger Food Menu for Kids of All Ages". Very fun.

Enjoy the show!
