Food for Zombies!

Srly. We had a zombie themed potluck since I've been telling my friends about the awesomeness that is Shaun of the Dead and we've yet to watch it. And we still haven't. I brought it, but we ended up just talking instead which is probably better. I did dress up as Shaun's cousin, Bam Bam, the zombie killer. One day...

Anyways, they're good sports so everything was not only zombie-themed, it was also vegan and gluten-free. We are all about the challenge. For my part, I made a blood and gore dessert. Rice pudding with hemp milk for the base. Throw in some banana chunks, blueberries, and cover with a bloody strawberry sauce. Now play with green and blue food coloring, mix, devour.

We also had scabby zombie fingers consisting of green beans, dried cranberries, and black food coloring. For the main course, bloody mushrooms over lemon-garlic pasta. I mean, brains and intestines. Zombie-lickin' good, yo.

And yes, I'm aware that I've passed the two week mark. I considered doing another daily meal thing, but decided that it probably wasn't necessary. Still, I'm really starting to hone in on why I picked up this challenge. Sure, it's be cool to test for a gluten sensitivity, but mostly I was bored. I wanted a new recipe challenge. Of course, I could be saying this to make myself feel better about cheating... Don't judge me.

Anywho, I'm trying to get over my total eclipse of the heart predjuidce of corn tortillas, so I've got a few things coming up. Aside from making them myself, do you guys know anything good to do with them. You know, so they don't taste like cardboard that rips apart with a look? Ugh.
