I decided recently to have a family movie night on a regular basis (either monthly or twice a month) where our dinner, dessert/movie snack, and movie are all themed.
I started out by making a list of movies that we have that are appropriate for everyone in the family. Then, I listed foods, drinks, and snacks that go along with the movie. Pinterest is a fantastic reference for this.
The first movie I chose is “Shrek”. The boys haven’t seen it, and it is one that the rest of us will enjoy seeing again. This movie, even though its for kids, has fantastic adult undertones that keep us parents entertained too.
Our menu is:
- Fiona’s chicken fingers
- Shrek’s macaroni and cheese (mac and cheese with added green food coloring)
- Swamp fly eggs (peas)
- Donkey’s dipping sauces: ketchup, honey, BBQ
- Swamp water
- Swamp dirt cups for dessert
- Ogre teeth for our movie snack
