Yesterday there was a trending topic, #cookbeatles, on Twitter. People got involved with some wildly inventive and some utterly awful punning with The Beatles and cooking.

Here are my offerings (I was gladly killing time in my lunch break, aptly enough). I mentioned it to my wife last night and, ever one for great ideas, she said: "You should open a restaurant with Beatles-related items on the menu". So now I know what to do if this all falls through!

Anyway, here are my offerings from #cookbeatles. I apologise in advance for the awfulness of most of these. My favourite's Maybe I'm Mayonnaised, though that wasn't a Beatles song Frown

Quite the opposite actually - I was having fun! More fun than my job was yesterday, anyway.

:D I like those. The only one I could think of is Honey (It's What I Want).

Maybe this could be your contest. Making up meals that will fit with these song titles?

How about a recipe?

Devil(ed)
in her tart

Ingredients:

Quiche
pastry

8" pie pan

1 cup + 2 tbsp. flour

Pinch salt

3 tbsp. firm butter

3 tbsp. vegetable shortening

2-5 tbsp. ice cold milk

Custard

3 large eggs

2 tbsp flour

¼ tsp nutmeg

½ tsp bacon salt*

½ tsp pepper

1 cup heavy whipping cream

½ cup milk

Deviled
Eggs

4 hard-cooked eggs

2 tbsp and 2 tsp mayonnaise

3/4 tsp white wine vinegar

3/4 tsp Dijon mustard

1/4 tsp dill weed

1/8 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp salt

Directions:

Pastry
Put flour and salt in bowl. Using
fingers or a pastry blender, cut butter and shortening into flour. Working
quickly, lightly rub flour and fat through finger tips until mixture is fine
and mealy. Start mixing the dough gently as you add cold milk, 1 tablespoon at
a time. Add milk until mixture just fathers into a firm yet crumbly ball. Do
not exert any pressure to force the dough together. The less milk you use the
flakier the pastry will be.

Roll the dough between 2 sheets of
wax paper. Line the pan with the dough. Prick all over the inner surfaces,
including the sides, with the tines of a fork. Paint the surface with a very
small amount of unbeaten egg white. Fill with the quiche recipe of your choice
and bake as directed.

Custard
Whisk together the eggs, flour, nutmeg, salt. Blend in the cream, and then
the milk.

Deviled
eggs

Slice eggs in half lengthwise;
remove yolks and set whites aside. In a small bowl, mash yolks. Add the
mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, dill, garlic powder and salt.

Spoon into egg whites.

Quiche

Preheat oven to 375 Fahrenheit. Place eggs, stuffed-side up, in prepared
quiche shell. Pour on custard. Place the filled pan on a baking sheet. Generally,
custard quiches should be baked for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the custard is
just set.

Let the quiche rest for 8 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving it.

*The recipe I based this off of originally
called for four strips of bacon. I know there are more than a few vegetarians
here, so this is my compromise. Fake bacon is an abomination.

Komm is a German word - the Beatles song is Komm, Gib Mir Deine (Diner) Hand. It's a rough translation of I Want To Hold Your Hand.

The others you can look up, though check your spelling.

Joe - when you open that restaurant, don't forget those with special needs and likes. For example...

For the diabetics - Ain’t She Splenda

For those who like Cajun Blackened Chicken - And Your Bird Can Singe (Blackbird was too easy)

For those who like surprises - Any Wine at All

For those not concerned with the dangers of irresponsible tuna fishing – Day Flipper

For those counting Carbs – For no Bun

That was too much fun for one day. I had to stop.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
