Today, I have a really cool post to share. A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Sony Pictures to participate in a fun project. They asked me to recreate one of the characters from their up-coming movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” (in theaters September 27th). As a mom, I was very excited to do this with Lucas so I clearly said yes.
The characters are called Foodimals. As part of the project I had to develop a recipe inspired by one of the characters. They are all fun-looking and really creative but the one I loved the most was the “Shrimpanzee”. The recipe is really good, pan-seared rosemary shrimp and to go with it, I made a spicy chunky tomato salsa. Visit their Facebook page to see step-by-step instructions on how to create this and other foodimals at home. We had a lot of fun doing this and we are definitely looking forward to watching the movie. You can watch the trailer HERE
As an added bonus, Sony Pictures is offering one lucky winner a Black Sony E-Reader and one copy of the original “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” DVD.
