Headconon that Fred Weasley is a Really Fantastic cook!!! This is so important, okay?

- For years he watched Molly cook dinner by herself, even on days when someone else should do it, like Mothers Day and her Birthday. 

- One Mothers Day he decides that she shouldn’t cook dinner, so fifteen minutes before Molly usually starts cooking, Fred sneaks into the kitchen and begins preping the meal Molly always makes on Mothers Day, Beef Stroganoff. 

- Molly walks in as he is slicing the beef into little pieces, meticulously, making sure each piece is exactly the same size. He has her old cook book sitting next to him and everything he will need for the dish already out. 

- Molly is surprised that he can even read the recipe, because she has had that book since her mother gave it to her years ago, and the pages are very faded and caked in spilled food. She could barely read it herself, but she didn’t need to having memorized most of the recipes anyway.

- Coming out of her thoughts Molly asks her trouble making son what he’s doing.

- “It’s Mum’s Day. You shouldn’t have to cook Mum. Go sit down or tell little Ronnie to clean his room or whatever Mums do for fun.” Molly smiled at her son and turned around to leave the kitchen. She expects she will have to whip something up later when Fred messed something up or burned it, as he had never cooked before.

- Fred is in the kitchen for a few hours, going slow and making sure everything is perfect. He may like to pull pranks, but he also knew his mum put up with a lot and he wanted to do something nice for her and he did nothing halfway. 

- The stroganoff is ready when Arthur walks through the door. The kitchen smells wonderful, as it always does when Molly cooks, but when he turns to see Fred stirring dinner he is shocked. Fred turns around and just smiles at him.

- Fred tells his mother that dinner is ready and she calls the rest of the children, they all sit down together and begin eating after each child has said Happy Mothers Day to Molly.

- The entire family gets silent as they dig in, it was absolutely wonderful, everyone makes a content noise as their tummies are filled with yummy food. 

- Ron looks over to his mum and says “It’s really really good mum, one of the best batches ever!”

- Molly smiles across the table at Fred, “Ronnie, I would love to take credit, but I didn’t make this. Fred did.”

- All jaws around the table drop. No one could believe Fred had made this. Except Arthur and Molly, the just beamed at their son. 

- For a moment all the Weasley children are nervous to eat anymore, for fear of a prank, but then they realized Fred would never do that to their mother, no one messed with mum. She was scary when she wanted to be. So they continued stuffing their faces after telling Fred how good it was.

- From then on, Fred made dinner once a week. 

- After a few weeks of this, Ginny started watching Fred when he cooked, as he was her favorite brother, though don’t tell that to anyone else, especially George. 

- One day Fred asked Ginny if she wanted to help him, and she agreed excitedly and they cooked together. 

- The day Fred got to cook quickly became Ginny’s favorite day of the week because she got to help her older brother cook and was finally able to spend quality time with someone she looked up to. Cooking also meant you didn’t have to do dishes, so that was a great perk too, both Fred and Ginny HATED dishes.

- Fred’s cooking skills later came in handy when developing the trick candies for their shop, Ginny also helped with the development, while George came up with more candy ideas. 

FRED WEASLEY IS A BOMB COOK. YOU CAN FIGHT ME ON THIS! IT IS IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!

Recipe: Spicy Eel

Description: It’s really spicy! Be careful. 

Game ingredients: Eel, Hot Pepper

This recipe restores 115 energy and 46 health. It gives a +1 Speed and +1 Luck bonus. The recipe can be obtained from George after reaching 7 hearts and sells for 175g. 

Difficulty: Easy, 30 minutes. Makes 2 servings. 

I’ve never had eel. I’d be lying if I said I was excited to try this recipe. 

-Eel, fresh or frozen
-1 tablespoon chili powder
-1 teaspoon paprika
-½ teaspoon ginger powder
-½ teaspoon Chinese five spice
-½ teaspoon cumin

The only eel I could find already had a brown sugar and soy sauce mix over it, so I decided to keep it on to contribute some flavour to compliment the spiciness. I also cut the eel in half so I could use the other portion for the Fried Eel recipe. It was a bit expensive, so I didn’t want to buy two whole eels.

Thaw the eel if it’s frozen and place it in a baking pan. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 

Dust the eel with the spices, or the spices of your own choice. 

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or til the flesh is soft and easily pierced with a fork. 

Eel is fairly greasy, as it turns out, so I highly recommend serving this over rice to absorb some of the grease and add some plain contrast to the rich flavours. You should also serve with fresh vegetables for a refreshing taste over the eel.

Despite the slight excess of grease, it’s quite good. The spices add lots of flavour but don’t make the dish too hot, and the eel itself is tender and tasty.

one thing i dont feel like i address enough is the fact that george is an actual cannibal 

in one episode ringo and goerge are on an picnic and george suggests food they can eat from a “picnic casket” which is an innocent enough joke thats supposed to create a comical spooky atmosphere 

these jokes continue with george picking out foods that seem to have a scary theme and whatnot such as blood sausages

one would expect the joke to be that the food has a grotesque name or description but then he says something that makes sound normal

but instead they reverse it and goerge introduces the food as something normal then says something that makes it grotesque, like offering ringo blood sausages and then telling him it was made with real blood 

“How about some heart of artichoke? You remember old Artie?”

like goerge please we dont eat peoples hearts anymore cant you be civilized for one episode

god only knows who that sandwich is made of
