Goonies Never Say Die!

I love the Indianapolis Museum of Art. They have a lot of fun things to do that don't involve walking around looking at old paintings. One of which occurs every Friday night in the summer, weather permitting. The Summer-Nights Film Series always has a little something for everyone. This week's movie was Goonies. If you are a child who grew up in the 80's, as did most of my friends, I'm sure you've seen this movie. My friends Sara and Megan and I have been planning the outing to see Goonies since they announced it on the schedule. We thought we'd do a pirate theme, in honor of One-Eye'd Willy, and then also some Italian in honor of the Fratelli's. Unfortunately, due to storms late last night, the film itself was rained out, but we did get to go enjoy a lovely picnic on the museum grounds and watch some pre-movie entertainment. I was in charge of sandwich and drink, so here's what I took...

Fratelli Grinders

1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons tarragon vinegar
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup black olives, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, chopped

1 (1 pound) loaf round, crusty Italian bread
1/2 pound sliced deli turkey meat
1/2 pound sliced ham
1/4 pound sliced salami
1/2 pound sliced mozzarella cheese
6 leaves lettuce
1 tomato, sliced

In a medium bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar and garlic. Season with parsley, oregano and pepper. stir in olives and mushrooms. Set aside.
Cut the off top half of the bread. Scoop out the inside, and leave a 1/2 inch outside wall. Spoon 2/3 of the olive mixture into the bottom. Layer with turkey, ham, salami, mozzarella, lettuce and tomato. Pour remaining olive mixture on top, and replace the top half of bread. Wrap securely in plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.


Pirate Rum Punch

2 cups Malibu Tropical Banana flavored rum
1 dash grenadine syrup
2 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 large can (around 20 oz) crushed pineapple
1 orange, sliced into rounds
1 lime, sliced into rounds
1 lemon, sliced into rounds

In a large punch bowl, prepare the orange juice according to package directions. Add the can of crushed pineapple. Stir in the rum, banana liqueur and Grenadine. Float slices of orange, lime and lemon on top.
