COOKING SCATTERGORIES! QUARANTINE EDITION! *VIDEO* WALNUT LINGUINE TOPPED WITH WATERMELON CANDY CRUNCHIES!
Inspired by Guy's Grocery Games and a desire to bring some fun into my caged in weekends, I designed a quarantine cooking game! Cooking Scattergories!
I'm already being challenged to put together unique dishes from my somewhat quiet fridge and pantry, as I haven't been to the grocery store since the beginning of the month, so why not add some fun to the situation!
And you can see how fun it was from the outtakes at the end of the video! The power of laughter is so incredibly needed at this time and it does a world of good for our minds and bodies!
Not only was the game fun, but the dish was fantastic! I wouldn't have ever thought of combining these ingredients and it turned out so good! I couldn't stop eating it!
You have to try this game! This is the perfect time!
If you live by yourself Facetime a friend to do this with you like I did with Justin. I would love for you to share this content with that person or anyone else you believe this idea would bring some joy to!
If you do please share with me via social media or in the comments below. I would love to see videos and/or pics!
I already have more ideas because I love games and I love to laugh, so I'm sure I'll be playing some more Quarantine cooking games to share this weekend!
Stay safe and b.well,
HOW THE GAME WORKS
1. I roll a lettered dice (the dice from the game Scattergories) and whatever letter it lands on, I have to find ingredients that start with that letter in the time it takes the buzzer to go halfway around the circle. Normally it goes for the whole circle, but it was too much time.
2. I picked 6 items (rice, quinoa, lentil pasta, lentils, buckwheat groats, and chickpea pasta) which my best friend Justin, who was the host via Facetime, put in a random order. I pick a number and after I gathered my ingredients he would tell me what was chosen. This element was added to help with making this a dish since thru test runs it needed something to help create the body of the dish given my limited food items on hand.
