Pocahontas – Lime Glazed Ham with Blueberry Sauce, Corn, Pumpkin Cornucopia Hardtack

Quick links: Ham | CornPumpkin Cornucopia | Hardtack | Verdict

 

So we changed up the list a little bit. Chronologically, Pocahontas came out before Toy Story, but we figured Pocahontas would be a great post for Thanksgiving. If you’re looking for some good Thanksgiving recipes, check this out. Some of the foods that were in the movie that we have eaten before are Drumsticks from Sword and the Stone and dog treats from 101 Dalmatians.

 

Ham

Ok, we have done ham a few times before. But we decided to do a recipe that you can use at Thanksgiving. We see Percy sitting next to some lime, blueberries and ham.

We made Lime Glazed Ham with blueberry sauce. It was better than gold.

  4. Bake 2 hours or until thermometer reads 140°F, brushing frequently with pan drippings and remaining glaze in bowl. Let ham stand in pan 15 minutes, spooning pan drippings frequently over top.
Blueberry Sauce
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch or arrowroot powder and water.
  2. Stir in the apricot jam, brown sugar, wine, and lemon juice.
  3. Cook over medium-low heat for 5 to 6 minutes until the sauce is thickened and bubbly.
  4. Stir in the blueberries and cook 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Spoon the sauce over the ham and serve.

Corn

Corn is shown a lot. Especially in the scene where Pocahontas thinks John Smith’s gold is corn.

No real recipe for this. But to make good corn, boil water that is enough to cover the corn. Once the water is boiling, place the corn in and wait for it to come back to a boil, place the lid on and wait for 2-5 minutes. Boom, perfect corn.

Pumpkin Cornucopia

This is kinda an inspired recipe. At the end of the movie, the Native Americans bring a bunch of veggies. And veggies are shown a lot during the movie. This is a recipe of a veggie medley cooked in a pumpkin.

Will it Make you Paint with All the Colors of the Wind?

All the food was really good, even the hardtack wasn’t too bad. I highly recommend the ham. It was sooo yummy.

Verdict:

Ham – 10/10

Corn – 7/10

Pumpkin cornucopia 6/10 (we undercooked ours sadly, would be better if it were more cooked)

Hardtack – 6/10

Toy Story – Pizza Planet Pizza, Alien Slime, Cool Ranch Doritos, Froot Loops and Poptarts

I love Toy Story. Love love love. I was super excited to rewatch the movie. I was amazed on how well the 3d animation still holds up. It makes me feel soooo good. So grab your favorite toy, and get ready for some great food.

Goofy Movie – Leaning Tower of Cheeza, Bigfoot Steak, Hi Dad Soup, Eggs and Bacon, Pancakes, Chili Dog, Nachos, Pepperoni Pizza

Quick links: Leaning Tower of Cheeza | Bigfoot Steak BaitHi Dad Soup | Eggs and Bacon | Pancakes | Chili Dog | Nachos | Pepperoni Pizza | Verdict

 

This is one of the funniest Disney movies out there. Right up there with Emperor’s New Groove. It actually isn’t a Walt Disney Animation Studios picture. Its a Disneytoons Studio movie, which handles the direct-to-DVD/VHS/Blu-Ray sequels and other non-major movies. But the quality of Goofy Movie is right up there with any of the Walt Disney Animation movies. It has some awesome music too.

 

There were some other foods shown in this movie that have been seen in other movies. We see french fries a bit. You can find that recipe in the Aladdin post, there was a log that bigfoot ate. You can find a bark recipe in Bambi. Donuts (at the diner), you can find a recipe from Lady and the Tramp.

 

Leaning Tower of Cheeza

Probably one of the most memorable foods shown in a Disney movie, and quite possibly the most disgusting. Bobby is one of my all-time favorite characters (thanks Pauly Shore!)

I tried to replicate it….poorly.  When I ate it, it felt like I was going to suffocate. I highly recommend trying it! haha.

Bigfoot Steak

When Max and Goofy are camping, Pete and PJ come wheeling up in their huge RV. Pete cooks a delicious-looking steak for dinner.

Goofy then manages to use that steak to attract bigfoot.

The steak I made was good, but I didn’t get a good cut of meat. It was very fatty. The char was at least good.

Hi Dad Soup

Another iconic Disney food scene. Max and Goofy’s father/son bonding moment. 

vlcsnap-2015-11-04-08h03m48s899

I tried to find some alphabet soup, but I couldn’t. The closest I got was alphabet spaghetti-o’s. Basically the same thing, right? I wanted to cook it on a cigarette lighter, but I couldn’t find the one in my car. Too bad.
IMG_20151101_144018
No real recipe here. Just find some alphabet soup and heat it up!

Smiling Eggs and Bacon

What a nice diner to make Max some smiley face eggs and bacon.

vlcsnap-2015-11-04-08h04m06s116

There isn’t much to making eggs and bacon. But a tip to making sunnyside up eggs, is to cook it on a lower heat and cover the eggs for a bit. That will cook the top as the bottom is cooking.

Long Goofy’s Short Stack

At the diner as as well, Goofy gets a short-stack (possibly a visual pun as to how how long and lerpy Goofy is).

Here’s a good diner-style pancake recipe

Will it make you Stand Out, Above the Crowd?

No real sugary food this week, which was good, but all of the food was junk food-ish, which was delicious. haha. I want to start a leaning tower of cheesa competition. I think it’s better than the gallon challenge or the cinnamon challenge.

Verdict:

Leaning Tower of Cheesa – 5/10 (once you get past the gagging)

Steak – Flavor: 8/10, cut of meat: 4/10

Hi Dad Soup – 6.5/10

Eggs and bacon – 7.5/10

Pancakes – 7/10 (I think I needed to add more flour)

Chili dog – 8/10 (make sure to use good hot dogs )

Nachos – 7/10

Pizza – 9/10
