Arrested Development Recipe Week: Honorable Mentions

arrested development recipe week While frozen bananas and cornballs are most certainly the leading food characters on Arrested Development, we can’t celebrate this week’s lead-up to season four without drawing your attention to some of the show’s food-related honorable mentions.

The Mayon-egg

This original recipe, which comes from George Michael’s girlfriend Ann, wins the award for “Most Creative” and “Least Appetizing.” Ironically, Ann’s nickname is Egg.

Ice Cream Sandwich

George Sr. can’t get enough of these freezer classics, in prison or elsewhere.

I was thrilled to discover that the blog Sugar Hero was also counting down to AD2013 by sharing some of the show’s recipes…she took the ice cream sandwich to the next level. Just look at these beauties!

Hot Ham Water

“So watery, and yet there’s a smack of ham to it!”
(Sidenote: It doesn’t matter how bad of a mood I’m in, if I hear that ham water quote, I’m laughing. #ilovebuster)

Sugar Hero teamed up with the blog 10th Kitchen in a joint leadup to this Sunday…check out 10th Kitchen’s recipe for  Hot Ham Water…a.k.a. Ham and Spring Vegetable Soup!

And finally, we have

Carl Weathers’ “Baby, you got a stew going” Stew:

Actor-turned-acting-coach Carl Weathers may be down on his luck, but he can turn almost anything into a stew.

And that concludes our week of Arrested Development recipes. For those of you familiar with the show, fortunately it’s not for British eyes only, and you can tune in to season 4 on Netflix this Sunday. For those of you who had never heard of Arrested Development, you’re welcome.

One thought on “Arrested Development Recipe Week: Honorable Mentions

  1. Awesome, thanks for the links! Great minds think alike AGAIN, because I did a round-up today and included your AD recipes. Obviously we’re soulmates.

    Also, I saw a lot of frozen bananas and ice cream sandwiches floating around the web this week, but there was a sad lack of mayon-eggs. I really wish more bloggers would have tackled that recipe–so much potential! (Be right back, gagging…)
