Roald Dahl theme dinner

We ate Mr Twit!  On Roald Dahl's birthday last month so we celebrated by making a few recipes from our Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes cook book.

Mashed potato head.  Boiled egg eyes with olives.  Sausage and pine nut mouth.  Mushroom nose and ears.  Toast eyebrows.  Potato chip, baked bean and pea beard.  I heated him in the oven once he was assembled.

The stink bug eggs were so pretty.
James' peach juice.

 Krokan Ice Cream (we made coconut ice cream)

Hey there's a new series of the Amazing Race on... I think some more international theme dinners are in order.  The boys are super keen (as long as we don't have to have that raw fish again, they said).


  1. This is awesome! My eldest has just devoured all the Roald Dahl stories so I think she will flip if we did this!

    1. You totally should! It took ages but if you already had mashed potato from the previous night and could find some of those tiny potato stick chippies (I couldn't) it'd take much less time. It was worth it though.

  2. This is very cool, Mr Twit is awesome! xx

    1. Thanks :) I think he'd be great for a party.


so lovely to hear from you xx
