Hello, Dexter fans
For the season finale of Dexter I would like to make a special dinner. Since there are only going to be four of us, I am not going to make a ton of stuff. But would like to do a dinner then an appetizer or snack for the show itself.
So far, I was testing out the idea of a "blood" red theme: Manicotti with tomato sauce, a pitcher of Cosmos... for dessert a strawberry charlotte, lined with, of course, ladyfingers, served with a red strawberry sauce.
But I am a little disappointed in my creativity. Considering Dexter is set in Miami I would rather make something a little more exotic/Cuban perhaps? But I don't have any recipes for that in my standard repertoire... Maybe I should make something "gorier" as befits John Lithgow (I thought perhaps a dish using the "trinity" of celery, pepper and onion, but maybe that is way too subtle?)... Also need help with a snack for the show...
Any thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.
