Gremlins: Breaking the Rules
Gremlins has everything we love – cute little furballs, food, a movie theater, Dick Miller and a rowdy bar. It seems only natural to make it our Slash & Dine Christmas movie this year. When bank teller Billy gets an unusual new pet called a Mogwai, he’s given three simple rules for him- no water, no food after midnight, and no bright light. It’s not long before his new pal Gizmo accidentally gets water on himself, and the one Mogwai multiplies into many. Mayhem ensues as they trick Billy into feeding them past midnight and that’s when all hell breaks lose. These adorable creatures become real sons-of-bitches and start terrorizing the town. And that’s when the fun begins. So give yourself a real treat this holiday and pair up Gremlins with these tasty snacks. Just remember to not break the rules…
Midnight Snack Nachos-
1 bag tortilla chips
1 pound ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 can nacho cheese sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sliced olives
1 small tomato, diced
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup pickled jalapeno slices
Brown ground beef. Add taco seasoning and cook according to directions. Heat nacho cheese sauce in microwave or in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Arrange tortilla chips on platter. Top with meat and cheese. Add the rest of the ingredients and enjoy.
Who could forget the awesome kitchen scene in Gremlins? This curious Gremlins checks out the blender.
Billy’s mom turns the blender on and makes a killer gremlin shake.
We decided to make our own gremlin shake, but hopefully ours tastes a little better.
3 scoops mint chocolate chip ice cream
1 cup milk
2 oz vanilla vodka
Corn syrup, tinted with a drop of yellow food coloring
Add ice cream, milk, and vodka to blender. Blend until smooth.
Pour into glass. Garnish with cookie crumbs, sprinkles, and corn syrup drizzle.
