For our Toy Story 2 movie night dinner, I focused on Woody’s Round-Up Gang (plus Al dressed as a chicken).
Our Toy Story 2 Menu:
Al’s Toy Barn Chicken
Stinky Pete’s Gold Corn Nuggets
Bullseye’s Carrots and Apples
Woody’s Cowboy Crunch (Reese’s Cereal)
Andy’s Cowboy Camp S’mores Pie (Chocolate pudding in graham cracker crust with marshmallows)
Jessie’s Rootin’-est Tootin’-est Root Beer
This dinner was a little more elaborate than usual, but it was easy to put together. And it tasted good, too!
The movie was one of our better viewings. Luke thought the scene where the toys have to cross the street under traffic cones was great, and was genuinely concerned that the pipe might run them over! Too funny.
I feel a little bad when I watch Toy Story 2 because I have an eBay toy store. As someone who shops yard sales to find toys to sell, I am essentially The Villain in this movie!! I have never and would never steal something from a yard sale, though, so that puts me one step above Al. And I haven’t sold anything to a museum yet, just to new kids who will love the toys. So maybe I’m a good guy in the end?
You can get my menu cards for this meal here and here. Enjoy!
One thing we HAD to do for Toy Story 2 Week was – duh! – visit the toy store!
Luke went straight for the train table, his favorite part of the store. There weren’t any trains this time, but he made it work.
Scarlett did a bit of shopping on her own ;).
Oh, hey! The Toy Story toys!
We had to check out the bikes and Scarlett’s favorite, the Power Wheels
When it was time to go, Scarlett wanted to stay, so she hunkered down in a baby pool by the exit.
We finally convinced her to leave with the promise of strawberries with dinner. Otherwise, she might have decided to live at Toys R Us. And, really, I don’t blame her – it’s not Al’s Toy Barn, but it sure is fun!
I know it’s kind of random to have a Toy Story 2 week without having a week for the original Toy Story first. But before we went to Disney, I did a little dinner for Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins so the kids would understand Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. This time around, I thought a Woody-themed dinner would be fun, and I think Toy Story 2 is the best movie for a Woody theme.
But while I’m thinking about it, here’s our Buzz dinner:
Our Buzz Lightyear Menu:
“Pizza Planet” Pizza
Toy Story Fruit Snacks
“Shooting Stars” (Carrots and Ranch)
“Alien Ice” (Lime Sherbert)
“Buzz’s Rocket Fuel” (Lime & Grape Gatorade)
I have some ideas that I think will be fun for TS2 that I will try out throughout the week!
