Cowabunga dude! How has your week been? If it's not going too well, hang on a little more, it's almost the weekends. :) Today I'm going to share two creations inspired by shows I watched when I was much younger, lol.
The first one is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (sorry, I shortened that in the title so it'll fit) , I used to watch this on television when I was a kid. I can't really recall much details on what the show is about now, I can only remember that the Turtles names are Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael, Michelangelo loves to eat pizza and their catchphrase is "Cowabunga!". I think that's about all that I can recall, lol, my memory is terrible these days. -_-
And so, I made Michelangelo with his favourite pizza, had to google for the colour of his scarf, as I could not remember what colour it should be. Michelangelo was made from rice wrapped in blanched lettuce, other ingredients used were cheese, nori and tomato. The pizza was actually a fish cake, I added sausages, bell peppers and cheese and baked it for a while.
My boys have not seen the television series before though, they did however watched parts of the movie version on television before, so they are able to recognise this character.
The other movie I took inspiration from was Pirates of the Caribbean, could only remember bits and pieces of the movie, but the one character that left a lasting impression was of course Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp.
I made a cartoonfied Jack Sparrow, using rice and squid ink pasta as the main ingredient. The rice was coloured using some ketchup, the rest of the ingredients used were red cabbage, different coloured bell peppers and hanpan ( Japanese fish cake). I served this with some salad and creamy garlic chicken.
This also reminds me of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland that LT used to be so afraid of, he used to find it scary when he was younger, lol.
