Last night, I dreamed some of my teeth fell out. Before I turned out the light, I was thinking about how to make Moxie butter brickle cookies and that must be why not only my rear molar fell out during the evening dreamscape, but also the three teeth in front of it. All I remember about the dream was that I was holding these four teeth in my hand and saying “darn, this is going to be a bigger dental job than just putting the crown back. I’m going to need a partial.”
Fortunately, it was just a dream.
I do spend a lot of time thinking about the recipe contest, though, and trying to imagine different ways the distinctively different soda could be added to foods. Here are just 11 ideas I’ve had in the last 3 days:
- Chocolate Moxie dipped pretzels
- Moxie granola
- Chocolate Moxie dipped potato chips
- Fresh crepes with Moxie-macerated strawberries and Moxie whipped cream
- Chocolate Moxie dipped strawberries
- Moxie butter brickle
- Moxie-marinated beef tips
- Fresh pineapple with a Moxie yogurt dipping sauce
- Moxie coconut shortbread cookies
- Moxie fondue
- Moxie and coffee
None of these ideas are fully developed (especially number 11). None of these ideas are particularly “Portland foodie hip.” I’ll admit, my ideas are probably stuck in the 90’s. But if a person like me, who isn’t a very good cook, can come up with 10 ways to make fun and delicious food with Moxie soda while drifting off to sleep, imagine what a truly creative and inventive devotee of The Food Network could do.
And there are cash prizes for the best of the best.
The Moxie Recipe Contest will be held on Saturday afternoon, July 10, 2015, at the MTM Center Gymnasium, 18 School Street, Lisbon Falls, Maine. The judging begins at 2:00 p.m. FMI, click here.
