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.
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!
You should also check out Sugar Hero’s take on the frozen banana: if the Bluths sold these, there really would always be money in the banana stand!
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)
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.
