Over the past few years, having been able to live by myself (and not in a college dorm), it's given me space to buy my own food and prepare it on my own. Now, I could easily still be eating just the usual instant noodles and microwave meals from those college days, but come on, we can do better!
So I started not only following more recipes in cook books, but actually expanding on them and making my own experimentations! Just over the last year, I've made Oreo brownies, popcorn coated in chocolate and orange zest, Lucky Charms waffles, pecan pie ice cream, and much, much more! I found that my ideal love language for friends and family is making things for them, and that includes food.
So now, I'd like to start combining my loves for food and movies to start this series... one that can give you the chance to taste your favorite movie!
- The sandwiches eaten by numerous characters, including Will and Skylar.
- The beer drunk by numerous characters, including Will and Chuck.
- The peanuts seen on the table in a conversation between Sean and Lambeau (peanuts are also a popular baseball snack, which is a key component in a story told by Sean).
- The apples from the famous line, "How do you like them apples?!"
Now, here's the recipe for "Good Will Hunting on a Plate!"
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- 1 bottle beer
- 2/3 cup peanut butter
- 1 apple chopped into thin slices
- Zest from 1 lemon
- Dash of pepper
- Place the slices of bread on a large skillet at med-high heat until toasted on one side each.
- Remove the bread slices and put on a separate plate. On the same skillet, pour the beer and the peanut butter together. Cook until peanut butter can be easily stirred without massive clumps. Stir frequently.
- Add the chopped apples. Cook until apples can be easily penetrated by a fork without resistance. Stir occasionally.
- Add the lemon zest and season with pepper.
- Continue stirring. Once about half the mixture can be lifted by a spoon as a solid unit without being liquidy, transfer onto the toasted side of one of the bread slices. Place the toasted side of the other bread slice on top of the mixture, making a sandwich.
- Serve with a side of chips.
