images-2.thumbnail.jpgWe at Firedoglake have been busy planning a delightful collection of dishes, appropriate to enjoy during the Vice Presidential debates, based on the candidates and their foibles. You can also nibble on them during a viewing of Larry’s Flynt’s latest oeuvre:

Amuse bouche de Biden– filet of sole with balsamic vinagrette (place whole piece in mouth)

Popcorn

Cheese puffins

Moose, prepared in a trio of manners: moose stewed on a snomobile engine; carpaccio of field dressed moose with Bering Sea crab froth; mini-moose burger with Matanuska Creamery cheese

Recreationally fished halibut with rockfish sauce and Anne Kilkinney raspberry sauce

Roasted crow (the right wing only will be served)

Confit of Pacific Loon with a tangy Valdez reduction

Bristol Bay wild salmon cakes made from king, sockeye and chum salmon, which get their unique flavor from copper and gold mining run-off

Grilled pork belly with McCain’s special rub of salt, pepper, garlic powder and hand squeezed lemons

Seawater brined polar bear filet garnished with penguin fritter

Chicago pasta and New Hampshire pot pie

For dessert:

Cindy Brittle: burnt sugar studded with a salty nut

Sun-baked Alaska

MBNANA split with chocolate credit crunch

Humble pie

Your choice of:

Wolf It Down Wine flights

Palin Syrah

Frosty Budwieser

Polar ice cap water, melted by man

Branchflower elixir
