This month's Food 'n' Flix food blog challenge is Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, chosen by Culinary Adventures with Camilla.
I've seen the film before and thought it was fun; a story that would appeal to both adults and children. The central character, a young man named Flint, lives with his dad and pet monkey, and when his town suffers a shortage of food, he invents a machine that transforms water into food. However, things get out of hand and the machine starts producing food that is bigger and bigger and finally a large tornado of spaghetti and meatballs threatens the town, and the world. Do they save the day? What do you think?
This film is full of food - at one point it rains cheeseburgers - but as the title is so memorable I wanted to make something with meatballs. I've featured meatball recipes on my blog before, like these cheese-stuffed meatballs:
So instead, this is more of a serving suggestion than a recipe. I give you: cloudy with a chance of meatballs!
The clouds are of course mashed potato and the trees are broccoli. This would be a good way to let children have fun with their food and perhaps try something they haven't eaten before!
I'm sending this to Food 'n' Flix, hosted by Culinary Adventures with Camilla.
