Fandom Foodies group theme for the month is #Burtoween! Carrie at Witchy Kitchen is our host and she has invited everybody to participate in this spooktacular feast by creating recipes pulled from or inspired by Tim Burton films. Whether he wrote, directed, produced, or did the art work—they are fair game! For more info on how to participate, visit #Burtoween at Witchy Kitchen!
I'd been meaning to do a dish inspired by Edward Scissorhands for months, so this was the perfect opportunity for me to cross that off my list! I didn't go creepy (I know, boring), but who could resist the allure of a retro dish that is somewhat quirky? Not I.
When kind local Avon saleswoman finds a boy with scissors for hands hiding in a castle after the death of his scientist (father) creator, she brings him home with her. The neighborhood circuit of nosy, desperate housewives goes wild with this development, "encouraging" Peg to have a barbecue to introduce Edward.
Poor naive Edward is used and abused by most of the people he meets, but he leaves his mark on the hearts of everyone he meets. This modern version of a retro dish does the same.
