A Neverland Breakfast Party

Sunday was a big day for television in our house.

Of course it was the series finale of Breaking Bad. But there were some family-friendlier viewing events happening as well.

Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Neverland Rescue premiered on the Disney Channel, while on ABC, the Season 3 of Once Upon A Time began with the characters journeying to Neverland. In honor of these premieres,  I put together a Neverland themed breakfast to start of our day right!

Our Neverland Breakfast Menu
  • Peter Pan Cakes
  • Captain Hook’s Bacon
  • Jake’s Dubloons (orange slices)
  • Pixie Dusted Fairy Donuts (Decorated Cheerios)
  • Tick Tock Crocktails (Apple Juice tinted green)




It was fun to have Peter Pan, Jake and the Disney Fairies all together in one meal!

Breaking Bad Finale Dinner

Breaking Bad is neither Disney nor Kid-Friendly, but I like the show and I like this dinner I created for it so I wanted to post it somewhere. Please skip this post if you may be offended by the content of things related to Breaking Bad.

Both Tom and I found Breaking Bad to be one of the best shows on television, so for the Series Finale, I put together a themed dinner based on the show. With a lot of inspiration from Pinterest, the meal came out pretty fun and pretty delicious!

I spelled “Skyler” wrong, but the green beans were good

The green beans were Tom’s idea, which I thought was great because it added something healthy to the meal, plus it commemorates one of the best scenes from the show.

Regarding the finale, I thought it was a great ending. I’m so glad Tom made me watch the show!

Goodbye, Breaking Bad. You will be missed!


“We’re Going to Disney World” Theme Dinner

We’re going to Disney World!

We decided on another trip to WDW this year to take advantage of the free dining promotion offered for the fall and attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party.

We had a special Disney World Themed Dinner before we left. I tried to base all the food on Magic Kingdom attractions.

A Minecraft Themed Birthday Dinner

Luke loves Minecraft more than anything, so to celebrate his fifth birthday, we came up with a dinner with a Minecraft theme.

For gifts, I used some gem-print wrapping paper I got on clearance after Christmas. Then I put the gifts in a treasure chest that guests had signed at Luke’s first birthday party.

He was thrilled to get a Minecraft LEGO set.

He also got a Kindle Fire from Mimi – more ways to play Minecraft!


It was a fun little way to celebrate our boy’s big birthday.
