Conan Day: A Barbarian Banquet

Pin It
Look closely. Those "C's" on top on the dough, those my friend, are for Conan. Conan the Barbarian.

I have a friend who says we  find any reason to get together to eat and drink. It's true. We make up holidays, celebrate couches, pork, hot days, cold days, and just about anything. This past weekend, we paid tribute to the movie that is Conan the Barbarian. I have to admit, I had never seen this movie before, and I would never see it again, this was all the husband's doing, but, the food was excellent and there was beer.

In preparation for the screening, I cooked up the side dishes, and the husband baked breads. Another friend cooked little hens and lamb heads.
At the insistence of the husband, we made the grilled vegetable salad. Although we've been having this a lot lately, we haven't tired of it. It's good and good for you.
I also made couscous with red onions, garbanzo beans, sun dried tomatoes, dill, and dressed it with lemon juice and olive oil. I love me some couscous. It goes with anything. It just needs to be spiced up a little.
When we got to my brother-in-law's house, there were two gross looking lamb heads in the oven, and cute little hens, stuffed with lemons and lavender. The hens were tasty. The heads, I stayed away from.

My favorite dish was a new recipe I tried, a Swiss Chard pie. But, since I liked this recipe so much, and made it several days later, it deserves its own entry. Coming soon!
