Needless to say, that pretty much sums up our FUNTASTIC FRIDAY theme.

Dinner & A Movie, Catching Fire Style:

 

Let's talk about tonight's menu:

 

We'll be having Katniss Kabobs with Everdeen Dipping Sauce, Peeta Bread (chuckle), and Capital Cupcakes for dessert.


Katniss Kabobs with Everdeen Dipping Sauce:

This Friday's On FIRE!, D.M. Kilgore, The Realm, Funtastic Friday, Catching Fire, Hunger Games, Dinner and a Movie, Family Fun Night, Recipes, Books, Movies, DMKilgore.com
 4 chicken breasts, cut into cubes

1/4 cup Frank's Hot Wing Sauce

1/4 cup Ranch Dressing


Arrows (aka wooden skewers soaked in water so they don't actually "catch fire" in the oven!)

























Simply dice up the chicken and skewer it.
Mix the hot sauce and ranch, brush over the skewered chicken until well coated.
Place on un-greased baking sheet.
Bake at 450 degress for 15 minutes, turn over, bake for another 15 minutes.
(Feel free to add some cubed-veggies or pineapple chunks to your skewers if you like!)


Serve with Everdeen Dipping Sauce
(ranch dressing with fresh parsley)



Peeta Bread:

 Ingredients:


1 cup hot water, but not boiling
2 teaspoons active dry or instant yeast
2 1/2 - 3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions
  1. Mix the water and yeast together in the bowl of a stand mixer (a large bowl will also work if you do not have a mixer), and let sit for about five minutes until the yeast is dissolved. Add 2 1/2 cups of the flour (saving the last half cup for kneading), salt, and olive oil. If using a stand mixer attach the dough and need the dough on medium speed for 8 minutes, adding more flour until you have a smooth dough. If using your hands sprinkle a little of the extra flour onto your clean work surface and turn out the dough. Knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. (Add more flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking to your hands or the work surface, but try to be sparing. It's better to use too little flour than too much.)
  2. Clean the bowl you used to mix the dough and run it with a little olive oil. Set the dough in the bowl and turn it until it's coated with oil. Cover with a clean dishcloth or plastic wrap and let the dough rise until it's doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  3. At this point, you can refrigerate the pita dough until it is needed. You can also bake one or two pitas at a time, saving the rest of the dough in the fridge. The dough will keep refrigerated for about a week.
  4. Gently deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and gently flatten each piece into a thick disk. Using a floured rolling pin, roll one of the pieces into a circle 8-9 inches wide and about a quarter inch thick. Lift and turn the dough frequently as you roll to make sure the dough isn't sticking to your counter. Sprinkle with a little extra flour if it starting to stick. If the dough starts to spring back, set it aside to rest for a few minutes, then continue rolling. Repeat with the other pieces of dough.
  5. Warm a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Drizzle a little oil in the pan and wipe off the excess. Lay a rolled-out pita on the skillet and bake for 30 seconds, until you see bubbles starting to form. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side, until large toasted spots appear on the underside. Flip again and cook another 1-2 minutes to toast the other side. The pita should start to puff up during this time; if it doesn't or if only small pockets form, try pressing the surface of the pita gently with a clean towel. (Keep cooked pitas covered with a clean dishtowel while cooking any remaining pitas.)

I love the Hunger Games books and have been quite happy with the movie adaptations so far.
