You can vote for your favorite recipe from Theme Time! (I think my own favorite would have to be his recipe for Figgy Pudding- yum! I make that every December, all my friends and family members just love it.)

-& here are all the recipes in one place, for anyone who wants em' or needs em':

Figgy Pudding
4 oz of plain flour
a pinch of salt
4 oz bread crumbs
4 oz shredded suet
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 oz dark soft brown sugar
8 oz chopped dried figs
finely grated rind & the juice of one lemon
2 tablespoon milk
2 beaten eggs
“Sift salt and flour together, then mix with all the remaining dry ingredients. Add the figs, lemon rind and juice, milk and beaten eggs. Beat them well. The mixture should have a soft dropping consistency. Put into a greased two-pint pudding basin, cover securely, and steam for three hours. I like it served with heated golden syrup topping, and a generous pour of custard. Makes me hungry just talking about it. My engineer Tex Carbone likes vanilla ice cream on it. I don’t understand that at all.”
Memphis Style BBQ Sauce
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup vinegar
5 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 tablespoon butter
½ small onion
dash black pepper
cayenne pepper
1 ½ teaspoons salt
half cup water
Mix it all together in a large pan. Bring it to a quick boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 10 minutes. You can also figure out your own secret ingredient and dump it to the mix. I like about three fingers of Tennessee sipping whiskey.
Bob's Meatballs
1/4 cup oil for frying
1 pound ground beef (or a mixture of beef, pork and veal)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
9 saltine crackers, crushed
1/2 tsp. each Salt, Pepper, Oregano, Basil
1 Tbls. chopped Parsley
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1 tsp. Tomato Paste

Mix together and add egg mixture. Form into meatballs and fry in oil over medium heat about 4 minutes a side, turning often
Mint Julep
Four mint sprigs
3 oz of bourbon
1 tablespoon of powdered sugar
1 tablespoon water
Put the mint leaves, powdered sugar and water in a Collins glass. Fill the glass with shaved or crushed ice and then add bourbon. Top that off with more ice. I like to garnish mine with a mint sprig. Serve it with a straw. Two or three of those and anything sounds good!
Bloody Mary
2/3 cup tomato juice
2-3 oz. vodka
1 teaspoon horseradish
a "little" tabasco sauce
one teaspoon Worcestershire sayce
juice of half a lime
a "little" coarse sea salt
a "little" fresh ground pepper
one celery stalk

Take two thirds of a cup of tomato juice. Don’t pinch pennies here — get a good tomato juice! Add two or three ounces of vodka — I sometimes add four — one teaspoon of horseradish. Use fresh horsewash — horshrad [the DJ breaks down here momentarily ...] Use fresh horseradish! Sprinkle a little tabasco sauce in there, and then one teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce. I can say that easier than horseradish! Take the juice of a half a lime, a little bit of salt — I use the coarser sea salt, I like the texture — a little fresh ground pepper, then stick a celery stalk in there. Put on a couple of Willie Nelson records, sit for a while, and goodnight, Martha.

Rum and Coca-Cola
Let me give you my recipe for a rum and Coca-Cola. Take a tall glass, put some ice in it, two fingers of Bombay rum, and a bottle of Coca-Cola. Shake it up well and go drink it in the sunshine!

Thanks! I think I'm gonna try Bob's Figgy Pudding. I have never had any so it will be the best I've ever had!
