I'll Name the Food, You Name the Movie

Blueberry pie is easy -- Stand by Me, the "Revenge of Lardass Hogan" sequence.

How 'bout: an omelet, plain, and a chicken salad sandwich on wheat toast, no mayonnaise, no butter, no lettuce. And a cup of coffee.

Not sure, is it Five Easy Pieces after the tomato omelette bit?

Actually the chicken salad was not served but, held "between your knees!"

A new oldie:

Unforgetable turkey legs (or some large roasted bone, it doesn't matter), lasciviously consumed, open mouth and lots of tongue with "Momma"!

Another easy one:

A red velvet Groom's cake in the shape of an armadillo

What movie?

blue leek soup

"Under the dusty almond trees, ... stalls were set up which sold banana liquor, rolls, blood puddings, chopped fried meat, meat pies, sausage, yucca breads, crullers, buns, corn breads, puff pastes, longanizas, tripes, coconut nougats, rum toddies, along with all sorts of trifles, gewgaws, trinkets, and knickknacks, and cockfights and lottery tickets."

3. Jarlsburg grilled cheese sammich

"Devil Wears Prada"?

I am on the Question board with "peanut butter and ground meat".

Clues: Now, I already mentioned it might be cheating since was only in the movie due to the movie's subject matter...but if you do not hurry, you will not be able to eat this at the location in the film. You will have to use the "recipe" someone posted long ago in eGullet (!!)

That would be Marlene's burger with PB I'm assuming, but I'm not connecting it to a movie.

Th naked gun 2/12?

Well, I have seen "Naked Gun 2 1/2" so I'd have to give it you as well. I probabl should have put "attacking" in quotes. I was thinking of Julia Rober's run-in with a lobster at a "fancy" restaurant in Pretty Woman.

I guess it's a classic gag!

So far we have, Pretty Woman, Naked Gun 2 1/2 and Annie Hall... :smile:

Insomniac,

You are perfect - EXCEPT they shared more then mere food sex... and later... poor Tom wrongly assumed that Mrs. Waters was his Mother!

Wasn't it the escargot in pretty woman - and while we are on that subject what kind of a jerk would order the kind of food richard gere does in that movie for someone who is already socialy out of their depth and very uncomfortable with the dinner arrangements without throwing in escargot?

I didn't post that clue but I recall the brownie scene quite well now that you mention it. Well done.

Another movie puzzle...here's some dialogue from the script:

"...now just stay calm. Stay calm. Don't look down, don't look down! Look up! Just keep your eyes up and keep them that way, o.k.!

Waiter there are snails on her plate. Now get them out of here before she sees them! Look away, just look away, keep your eyes that way!

You would think that in a fancy restaurant at these prices you could keep the snails off the food! There are so many snails there you can't even see the food! Now take those away and bring us those melted cheese sandwich appetizers you talked me out of!"
