I’ve been meaning to do a Frozen themed dinner for a few months, now. Finally, I got around to it on Sunday.
I sort of combined somethings from the movie that the characters liked to eat and some items that were inspired by the movie in general.
Our “Frozen” Menu:
Sven’s Carrots with Hummus
Sandwiches were in honor of Hans and Anna’s song. I made Peanut Butter and Fluff since the white marshmallow was kind of snowy.
The blue cupcakes with white frosting were a yummy dessert and ice cold blue Gatorade worked well for a themed drink. The leftover Valentine’s Day chocolates were fun, too. I think both Anna and Elsa would’ve enjoyed them!
It was a little bit difficult to come up with food for our Alice in Wonderland dinner. After a lot of brainstorming, I think it came out okay. Even if it wasn’t perfectly themed, it went well together, and tasted good too!
Our “Alice in Wonderland” Menu:
Alice’s Shrinking Burgers (Sliders)
Queen of Hearts Strawberry Tarts
Drink Me Punch
It was an easy meal, and the kids were excited to watch the movie afterwards. I call that a success.
Our “Up” movie night dinner was fun from the start, because of course we got to get a bunch of balloons! It was also fairly easy to come up with ideas, because – bonus! – there is actually a lot of food in the movie.
Our “Up” Movie Night Menu:
Dug’s Hot Dogs
Carl’s Prunes (I actually used plums)
Russell’s Ice Cream (from Fenton’s)
Ellie’s Grape Soda
After we ate, Scarlett spent about an hour playing with the balloons.
Tom also looked up how many balloons it would take to lift a person. Turns out a dozen isn’t enough! We had fun anyway, even without floating away.
I am planning a few different Halloween Theme Dinners for October.
Since the kids have been singing the “Boo to You” song ever since we attended Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in September, and have been enthralled with the Boo! for You Halloween Episodes on Disney Junior, I picked a Mickey Theme for the first once.
We called it “Mickey’s Boo To You Halloween Dinner”.
Maybe someone out there can take my idea and do a good job with it! I promise to try harder on my other Halloween meals throughout the month.
Even though it didn’t look great, it tasted okay. We paired the meal with a viewing of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse – Mickey’s Treat which was cute. I love Halloween and it’s fun to celebrate the season no matter what!
