Not feeling inspired by your usual dishes? Here's what's for dinner.

Marty McFly fans are having a field day. For the uninitiated, today (October 21, 2015) is the day that McFly travels to in the classic 80s film Back to the Future II. Theaters around the country are celebrating Back to the Future Day with special viewings, but you can host your own party with this meal inspired by movie moments.

① Drink: The Stowaway
We created this stealthy cocktail for a reader with a long road trip ahead. As Doc would say, "Where we're going, we don't need roads"—we just need a tumbler of spiked chai tea.

② Main Course: Pizza Bread
Unfortunately, dehydrated pizzas never came to fruition, as predicted in the movie. But you can still eat this American classic and just pretend it started off as a miniature version instead.

③ Dessert: Double-Chocolate Sea-Salt Cookies
All the time travel and multiple versions of the same characters might have you seeing double. And with these bittersweet chocolate- and cocoa powder-powered cookies, you really are.
