Twin Peaks Marathon

This weekend we had part one of our massive Twin Peaks marathon. We made it through the pilot and first 19 episode over two days. Lots of Twin Peaks. It was so good. I shouldn’t need to sell you on the show though. In typical fashion, we went all out, with themed food and decor.

We wanted to give our living room the feeling of the black lodge, with the red velvet curtains and chevron floor. I have to admit I didn’t quite finish my chevron quilt, but I managed to put the top layer together which worked just fine. It wasn’t a full on replication of the room since comfort was also a factor in watching so many hours of television, but it definitely evoked the essence of the black lodge.

coffee pie & donuts

Let’s talk about food though. There was pie. Lots of pie.

I tried some new recipes for key lime pie made with avocado and coconut milk, banana cream pie, the cherry pie from The Joy of Vegan Baking, and the faux chicken pot pie from Veganomicon. Jenn also made a strawberry pie with a creamy filling. I fell in love with that banana cream pie. The cherry pie was satisfying, but not quite as sweetly delicious as this one I made a year ago. Sadly, I think the difference was entirely my fault in rushing a few steps in the baking.

We had possibly the creamiest macaroni and cashew cheese ever. I’d like to eat this every day. Jenn also brought some super tasty donuts. Let’s not forget the signature David Lynch coffee. It was surprisingly good and quite strong, perfect for extended watching conditions. The pot pie was pretty good too. It was even better the second day.

On the second day we actually tried to eat salad, but the sweets won over. Hello waffle sundaes. More pie. There is nothing like sugar to get you through marathons.

We watched two days worth of Twin Peaks. We watched, we ate, we tweeted, we gossiped. People came and went, although for the majority there were eight of us. It was awesome. I can’t wait for the next installment when we finish the series and Fire Walk with Me.

  5. How was the key lime pie recipe? Did it taste anything like the non-vegan version?

    • miss alix says:

      I’ve never had non-vegan key lime pie, but I really liked this. It was very creamy and VERY limey.

    That banana cream pie looks amazing! I’m going to try the recipe, but today I think my craving will win out and I’ll just run to the bakery 🙂 Would you believe I’ve never seen Twin Peaks?? Putting it on my to-do list right now!

  11. Aaah! I love Twin Peaks! We did not go as all-out (and we took much longer) but Dave and I just watched the whole series for the first time last year.

    I love it! I’m sure the Lynch coffee made a good cup of black joe.
