Princess and the Frog

We did another dinner and a movie for Disney's Princess and the Frog,  We made homemade gumbo, some nasty southern cornbread stuff and the best part was "real man lovin' food"  beignets (pronounced bey-YAY)  basically fried dough with powdered sugar.

This movie was great.  I love the message about wants verses needs.  It is something that is so overlooked in today's society!

Another Dinner and a movie

We watched Monster's vs. Aliens.

For dinner I bought mini cheeseburgers, mini quesadillas, and mini tacos.  The kids got to feel HUGE eating their tiny treats.  For dessert I made dirt and worms, kind of alien-ish.  It was fairly simple and fun.

When we do our dinner and movie nights we bring in our coffee table from the other room and put a sheet or large beach towel over it and put it in front of the tv.  It is the only time we eat while watching tv so it makes it an extra special treat.  The kids are always excited for whatever is in store.

Tonight we are doing Princess and the Frog.  I will take some pictures and post them later.

Dinner and a movie ideas

We try as often as possible to do themed dinner and a movie. SOmetimes it is easy to think of somethimes it is a little more difficult. Here are a few taht are in the making.

The Princess and the Frog
For dinner we will have, Gumbo, Beignets, and Cajun Corn Bread

Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs
This is probably a no brainer but Spagheti and Meatballs, and Pudding in a cloud for dessert. We will probably add some gummy bears on the side just beacuse that is a part that the kids quote a lot!

Here are some movies we have done:

High School Musical 3
We ate High school food. For us it was Cheese Zombies (bread with melted cheese inside!) corn, and Tots (as in Napolean Dynamite "Give me your Tots!")

We did omelletes for dinner with all the culinary fixin's and for dessert we had strawberry crepes.
