THE HUNGER GAMES arrived on demand last night at midnight. The movie stars Academy Award® nominee Jennifer Lawrence, Donald Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. Set in the future, one male and one female from each of the twelve districts of the nation is forced to participate in the annual competition called The Hunger Games, which is broadcast live throughout the country for the entertainment of the Capitol’s wealthy residents.


Happy Hunger Games! Here is a tasty little bite, straight from Katniss Everdeen's pocket, for Reaping Day. If you've read the books, you know that Katniss' sister, Prim, owns a goat. On Reaping Day, Prim leaves her older sister a precious little gift of goat cheese wrapped in basil leaves.


To make it a little more appetizer-friendly, I made little bite-sized portions by combining goat cheese, cream cheese and a little rosemary. Roll them into small balls (you should have about 20), and refrigerate to allow them to firm up.



Once firm, wrap a basil leaf around the ball and spear them with cocktail toothpicks. Serve with bread or crackers (Peeta bread if you really want to get clever). And may the odds be ever in your favor!

Prim's Goat Cheese Bites
4 ounces goat cheese, room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1-2 teaspoons fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
20 large basil leaves
20 toothpicks
bread or crackers for serving (optional)


Combine cheeses and rosemary and form into small balls. Refrigerate until firm. Wrap each cheese ball in a basil leaf and secure with a toothpick. Serve with crackers or bread and order THE HUNGER GAMES on demand.
