Welcome back to another fresh new post Nerdie Foodies. This Saturday on February 23rd, is the 55th birthday of the one and only Dana Scully! These are just a few yummy eats and treats that would make this favourite FBI agent/Physician happy. Let’s go!
The UFO Burger
Who doesn’t love a good burger? This one just happens to be chock full of veggies and represents a UFO crash landing on Earth, perfect for an FBI agent that is part of the X-Files team. Gingi (from Domestic Geek Girl) shares with us their group’s creation. Check out this homemade burger recipe here!
A pizza with pepperoni, green peppers, and mushrooms? What’s not to love? If you don’t like those pizza topping options, feel free to change them to your preference. But this one is for Scully. Alison (from Alison’s Wonderland Recipes) shares with us her Scully inspired pizza recipe here!
Sidenote: This recipe uses pre-made dough. If you’d like to make everything completely from scratch, feel free to use your favourite pizza dough recipe.
Scully’s Homemade Yogurt with Bee Pollen
This recipe is for those whom are interested in a healthier treat. Even this Nerdie Foodie had to look up whether or not you can actually eat bee pollen. Turns out you can and can be found in health food stores. This is another creative recipe from Alison, but please read the note below to be safe. Check out her homemade recipe here!
*Note: You can get serious allergic reactions from eating bee pollen if you have pollen or bee allergies and is not safe for pregnant women or women whom are breastfeeding according to WebMD (see here for more information). It’s best to consult with your family doctor if you have any of these concerns and are thinking of trying this snack*
Nonfat Tofutti Rice Dreamsicle
You’re probably thinking “what in the world?”. I thought the same thing too. But after reading The Geeky Chef’s post about this non-fat tofu ice cream can’t actually be non-fat since tofu has fat content in it, this vegan ice cream mixture got my curiosity peaked. As The Geeky Chef mentions in her post, this recipe works better with an ice cream machine if you have one at home, otherwise it might not turn out as smooth. Check out the recipe here!
Agent Scully Cocktail
And finally, nothing says “sit back and relax” like a good alcoholic drink. This beautiful cocktail is another creation by Gingi. It even looks cool under a black light! Check out the recipe for this rum-based drink here!
Happy birthday, Agent Dana Scully!
