It's raining meatballs! Gwen of Simply Family Healthy submitted a photo of her Chicken Parmesan Meatballs with Eggplant.

Amy of Amy's Cooking Adventures couldn't decide what to submit and ended up with two foodimals. Perfect. She made a Buffaloaf, classic meatloaf that was so stinkin' cute! And it tasted good, too. Here's what she wrote: "It was flavorful, moist, and delicious! Hubs took a bite and said, “Woah. This is not your standard unglorified meatball.”" Nice.
And she made a Sub-Whale. Not only did she make another adorable foodimal, she made her own hoagie bread. Way to go, Amy!!
And I also have to share this. She included, "My boyfriend and I even adopted the way they kiss." I laughed so hard because that's how my 10-year-old kisses me goodnight, too. I love silliness.
Sam Sparks: [Holding spoonful of jello] It’s a solid, it’s a liquid, it’s a viscoelastic polymer made out of polypeptide chains but you eat it! I mean, it tastes good!
Heather, of girlichef, always ups the ante. For this event - remember the airplane-attacking gummy bears?!? - she made her own Giant Evil Gummy Bears. "These gummy bears are incredibly simple and fast to make. All you need is unflavored gelatin and flavored gelatin mix (like Jell-o). In 20-30 minutes, you (and by you, I mean your totally mean your kids, duh) will be biting the heads off of giant evil gummy bears like nobody's business."
I'll admit, I did order the mold right away. ;)
Another post that wins on the cute factor is the 'StrawBarry' Marshmallow Mousse by Deb at Kahakai Kitchen. "In honor of Barry and the marshmallows, we have a sweet, fluffy (and pretty cannibalistic I guess) 'StrawBarry' Marshmallow Mousse ;-)" Too funny.
Debra at Eliot's Eats sent me her post just under the wire. Phew, you made it! She made a Spicy Rooster Pizza - like the pizza flurries. "I wanted to create my pizza in honor of a favorite menu item at Marley’s in Tulsa. Our favorite creation there is the Italian Rooster (Grilled Chicken, Pepperoni, Jalapeno Peppers & Mozzarella Cheese with Garlic and Oil Glaze). Here’s my rendition... the “rooster” in the title of this recipe is also an allusion to all the crazy food-animals in the sequel."
And lastly, I had a hard time deciding between meatballs, foodimals, and sardines. I ended up going with sardines because, like Swallow Falls, sardines are important to where I call home: Monterey and California's central coast. While Flint says "sardines...are super gross." I'm grateful that the silver tide is enjoying a resurgence because my family loves sardines. I opted to make an Italian sardine dish - Sarde in Saòr, sweet and sour sardines.
And that's a wrap on this month's Food'N'Flix. Thanks so much, all, for watching and participating! Caroline Makes is hosting next month. She selected Funny Girl. That's a new one for me. Can't wait! Keep an eye out for her official invitation.
