Maddie was really creative with this and once we got started, she thought of so many great ideas.
Over the past year, we have watched and eaten the following:
"Sleeping Beauty" - we made pink pancakes (since she was sleeping, she would eat breakfast when she wakes up)
"Brave" - Shepherd's Pie
"Tangled" - angel hair pasta with braided breadsticks
"Peter Pan" - Pirate ship pizzas (french bread pizza) and fruit swords (kabobs)
"Monsters University" - monster meatball heroes and Mike Wazowski cupcakes
"Lady and the Tramp" - spaghetti and meatballs (of course!)
We make the themed food, and then eat it in the living room, picnic-style while we watch the movie. The girls LOVE it. It's such a treat for them to eat in the living room.
This past weekend, Matt was on a trip, so as a part of our Girl's Only Weekend, we had a dinner and a movie night. We decided on "Beauty and the Beast".
We had french toast casserole:
and the grey stuff:
(To make the grey stuff, I bought vanilla pudding cups and mixed in a little black gel - the kind you would use for cake decorating - so easy!)
Simple. Inexpensive. So special. We love our dinner and a movie nights.
