Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire Dinner

"Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them" comes out this week!  SQUEEEEEEEEE!
To get pumped (more pumped) for the movie, we watched Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire!

For dinner we had Yule Ball Pork Chops, Gillyweed Salad, Mad Eye Moody's Eyeballs, Goblet of Fire Cocktail, Dumbledore's Licorice Snaps, and Aunt Petunia's Pudding.  It was really good!

Yule Ball Pork Chops
I found the recipe here and tweaked it a bit!


3 bone in pork chops
2 tablespoons of flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
3/4 cup of Panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
1.5 teaspoons of dried sage
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of butter


1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2. In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, and pepper.
3. In another shallow dish, combine Parmesan cheese, Panko bread crumbs, and sage. 
4. Place the egg in a shallow bowl.
5. With each pork chop, dip in the flour mixture, then coat it with the egg, then cover with the Panko mixture.
6. In a skillet, brown the chops with butter and olive oil over medium high heat for two minutes on each side.
7. Transfer to a greased baking sheet and cook, uncovered for 15 minutes.

*These were amazing!

Gillyweed Salad
I found this recipe here and changed it quite a bit based on what we had in our kitchen. 

Ingredients for the salad: 

8oz of Spinach (or Gillyweed)
3/4 cup of Almonds
1/2 cup of dried cherries

*Mix together in a bowl

Ingredients for the dressing:

1/4 cup of Raspberry Blush Vinegar 
2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 tablespoon of Ginger and Honey Acetate
2 tablespoons of finely minced shallots
2 tablespoons of sesame seeds

*Mix together and top the salad with. 

Mad Eye Moody's Eyeballs
I did the same eyeballs that I did for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Goblet of Fire Cocktail
1oz Rum
1oz Blue Curacao
Fill with lemonade
Sprinkle with Cinnamon

If you want to light it on fire, use Bacardi 151.  We didn't because... ya know, I have a child and responsibilities and stuff. 

We just put a lighter behind the drink to cheat a bit.  WHAT?!?  Safety is important!

Dumbledore's Licorice Snaps
I got these Licorice candies from my Try The World Box Sweden!

Aunt Petunia's Pudding

I know, I know.  This pudding is actually NOT in this book.  But I have planned out my Harry Potter dinners.  You just have to trust me!  I got this recipe here!

Ingredients for crust:

1.5 cups of Nilla Wafers
5 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of sugar

Ingredients for filling:

16oz of cream cheese
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of sour cream
3 eggs
1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of Lemon extract
The juice from one lemon and the zest.
Purple Gel Icing
Lavender Sprinkles


1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
2. Lightly butter a 9 inch circular pan.
3. Cover the bottom of the pan with aluminum foil.
4. Combine crust ingredients until it looks like wet sand.
5. Pour crumbs into the bottom of the pan and compact with fingers. 
6. Using a mixer, combine the sugar and cream cheese until smooth.
7. Add sour cream, extracts, the juice and zest from a lemon.
8. Add in the eggs until well mixed. 
9. Pour filling into the crust.
10. Place circular pan in a larger rectangular pan.  Fill the rectangular pan with water so it hits the circular pan halfway up.
11. Bake for 50 minutes.
12. Turn the oven off and let sit in the warm oven for an hour.
13. Place in the fridge overnight. 
14. Decorate with purple icing and lavender sprinkles.

Can't wait to see "Fantastic Beasts" and neither can Olivia!
