Theologically Correct Cooking at Pentecost (The Sequel)

Last year, we supplied a handy list of meals and accoutrements that would help you celebrate the feast in honor of the Coming of the Holy Spirit right. This year, we have expanded your culinary options. Get shopping and bon appetit!

  1. Crepes Suzette.
  2. Brazilian Steak, or Churrascaria.
  3. Grilled Corn on the Cob with Garlic Butter, Fresh Lime, and Cotija Cheese.
  4. Baby Back Ribs.
  5. Grilled Pizza with Hot Sausage, Grilled Peppers and Onions and Oregano Ricotta.
  6. Combustible Edison.*
  7. (Fiery) Bourbon Corn Chowder.
  8. Flaming Pudding. (See right.)
  9. Dove chocolate bars.
  10. Venison Tongue. The same site offers delectable sauces for tongue as well. (And pop-ups.)

*Yes, this is a flaming alcoholic drink. Now, a sensible person may recognize that fire and alcohol and proximity to a face is not a good combination of factors. So as it says repeatedly on the site...be careful! Blow out the drink before you drink it! Not AS you're drinking it! Better yet, tell your friends you did this and have a Diet Coke instead.

"Churrascaria" - burned meat with spices.

Also...the flaming drink. I can't for the life of me remember what it is, (if I could find it written I'd post it).

It's actually a shot served in a tumbler, set ablaze, and drank through a straw. It has to be done quickly...the server lights the drink and one must quickly stick the straw through the flames to the bottom of the glass and drink.

It was actually very good.

I would recommend it for Pentecost.

Just wondering...are you and the Pyromaniac Priest working together? Now that there is a link of fire between you, and you both disappeared...with the others...

Serve all your menu items (minus the drink, of course) with tongs. When the mood hits you, pick up a pair of tongs and open-and-close them in synch with what you're saying. Explain that it's Pentecost and you're "speaking in tongs."
Oh! And since Pentecost is the Jewish Shavuot, celebrating the giving of the Law, follow up your feast by taking two tablets.
