On second thought....Who am I kidding? There are probably recipes based on the Best Pictures noms every year, I'm just WAY behind on the trend.
A trend of mine is being way behind on trends. For example, the word "tranny". I kid you not- the week I realized that I dropped it occasionally in casual conversations, I saw a status update from a gay guy friend on Facebook saying how saying "tranny" was so out. I extracted it from my vocab immediately. How did I miss the official window that I had to use tranny?? Damn it.
Remember the guy that made "tranny" cool?
ANYWAY, I ran across these recipes during the past several weeks and found it sort of funny that Black Swan of all movies, was inspiring cute recipes. It's not exactly a warm, fuzzy, feel-good film.

doesn't make me hungry, but to each his own.
I wonder if any of the other Best Picture noms are feeling left out? No True Grit dip, no King's Speech mini sandwiches to be be seen. haha.
I'm not together enough to do something cute and themed like make Oscar appetizers. We just had Girl Scout cookies, I'll re-phrase, I just had Girl Scout cookies. God bless those scouts and their cookies. But, I thought I'd share the Black Swan recipes just in case someone hasn't seen it yet and they want to be cute and themed when they rent it and watch it at home.
Back to my life as a hot tranny mess..... :)
