Description
Square meatballs. Sunrise mashed potatoes. Lemon blizzard parfaits. It's dinnertime, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs style, and you get to be the chef

The tiny town of Chewandswallow is known for its edible weather: soup rain, mashed potato snow, and hamburger windstorms. And now people everywhere can also enjoy the delectable dishes featured in the bestselling Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Grandpa has been hard at work editing and compiling his favorite recipes, and he's ready to share.

However, this is Grandpa we're talking about, so don't expect a dry, straightforward collection. No, in addition to his thorough directions on how to make everything from Strawberry Tallcake to--oh yes, yes, yes--Meatballs, this spiral-bound book is filled with clever asides and scrumptious illustrations.

From the Foggy Pea Soup to the Hamburgers Heading Toward Earth, these legendary recipes are delicious and easy to follow--so you can re-create culinary scenes from a cherished classic (no umbrellas necessary).
