Strawberry Shortcakes | The Dragon Prince

"Earnest, loyal, and trusting almost to a fault, Commander Gren serves as General Amaya’s lieutenant and Sign Language interpreter. Despite his status as a member of the Katolis army, Gren does not wield a weapon: he considers himself more of a diplomat than a fighter. Peaceful and soft-hearted, Gren is happiest at General Amaya’s side, both her voice and closest friend."

          Today happens to be Commander Gren's birthday from The Dragon Prince animated series on Netflix! His favorite food for his birthday is strawberry shortcake, though through General Amaya's good intentions (and apparently atrocious baking skills), he doesn't always get (an edible) one.

Premier Ball White Chocolate Panna Cotta w/ Raspberry Sauce | Pokémon

          Smalls loves Pokémon so I made her a special dessert for Christmas: a simple panna cotta premier ball! I thought I'd do a quick drop of the recipe, in-case any of you wanted to try it for New Year's. :)

          Premier balls are pretty much like regular pokéballs in the games, but they are a more elegant design of white with a red stripe and circle. They are also special in that you can get one as a bonus if you buy 10 regular balls at a time. The only other times you can obtain one is from a little kid in the Devon Corp. building in Rustboro City, and by buying it in a boutique in Lumiose City.

Dill Fruit Smoothie | The Grinch

          I recently saw The Grinch, the Illumination computer animated adaptation of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, with my little family and really enjoyed it! I kind of want to see it again. :) We re-watched the 2000 live-action adaptation with Jim Carrey a few days later, and then a few days after that re-watched the 1966 animated TV special. I did check the library for the original 1957 Dr. Seuss book, but of course it was checked out, it being Christmastime and all. ;)
          The new Grinch adaptation is different from the others in that it is gentler. I'm not sure how to put it really but that's what came to mind. It might sound lame, but it really appealed to me. The Grinch isn't cruel in this one (well, he's not "nice" either), and no one is cruel to him. He's simply a person who is negative and anti-social because of past experiences and the subsequent self-imposed isolation. He's a brilliant inventor and, different from the past iterations, is good to his dog Max. Also, there is no romance (thank goodness!) like there was in the live-action adaptation. And no adult humor. It really is a great family movie that's perfect for little and big kids.

Mushroom Fajita Burritos | Voltron: Legendary Defender

          Ack! The 8th and final season of Voltron: Legendary Defender premiers tomorrow on Netflix! It has been such a wild and fun ride and I'm sad to see it draw to a close, but am looking forward to how things culminate and conclude. Those boys need some rest!

          Last season (season 7, episode 5) Hunk was his resourceful gourmet self again and made some yummy-looking breakfast burritos for the gang while they were all stranded in space in their lions. Though he procured the ingredients from creatures and in ways that the other paladins didn't want to know about, when Hunk was making the food it looked like bell peppers, mushrooms, avocado slices (though cut from a vegetable resembling a zucchini), salt, verde sauce or guacamole, and flour tortillas.

Cucumber Sandwiches | Hilda

          Hilda the animated series, based on Luke Pearson's all-ages graphic novel series published through Flying Eye Books, premiered on Netflix September 21, 2018. It is fantastic show with Scandinavian influences in folkloric content and setting/color pallet, with fun storylines and great characters. The main character Hilda often goes adventuring (exploring and adventuring is her thing) and her mom makes sure she has sandwiches packed in her satchel, along with peppermint tea.

"I get it, you've got a badge to earn. Well, here are some cucumber sandwiches. I made enough for everyone."
"My favorite. Thanks, Mum!"
–Hilda, S1Ep4, "The Sparrow Scouts"
