TV Dinners: A "Parks and Recreation" Menu

Kerry Acker


Treat yo'self to a Pawnee-themed evening with our recipes

We've got tons of great meal ideas on our Parks and Rec TV Dinner menu, most of them Ron Swanson-related (Bacon Deviled Eggs! Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp! Rib-Eye Steaks!). But--c'mon--how great does waffles-for-dinner sound? (And Crispy Cornmeal-Bacon Waffles would make for an excellent Ron Swanson-Leslie Knope mashup. After all, as Leslie says, "We need to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.").

But we could also do up some fry-fry chicky-chick in honor of Tom Haverford. Or have a calzone as we dream about Ben and his amazing butt.

Then again, I might cave from all the food pressure and just have a glass of Lagavulin and some bananas. Because bananas and Ron Swanson.

What are you guys eating and drinking to celebrate?
