Dinner and a Movie: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

chance-of-meatballsBy Mindy McIntosh-Shetter

Recently my family and I showcased Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in our backyard along with our traditional movie night dinner.

This may not be familiar to some but the just of this Family Movie Night is that a meal is planned along with the lines of the movie’s theme.

This particular movie had a lot of food choices but we decided on a Burger Bar with homemade ketchup, Ranch Dressing potatoes, fried green beans, and Tomato Ketchup Apple Pie with homemade vanilla ice cream.

Movie snacks were also planned and consisted of gummy bears, fish crackers, and homemade lemonade. While the menu may seem a lot of work my family enjoys picking the movie, planning the menu, and preparing it together. So this summer give Dinner and a Movie Family Night a try I promise it will create memories that will last forever.

Below are 2 recipes that my family used for our Dinner and a Movie Night. Read the rest of this entry »

Dinner and a Movie: Fried Green Tomatoes

green-tomatoesBy Mindy McIntosh-Shetter

In the summer I always like to have Family Movie Night.

We set up the projector and hang a sheet over the fence to create that drive-in movie feel.

The hotdogs are cooked on the grill, popcorn is popped, and the carbonated drinks are pasted around before and during the movie.

Sometimes we even stretch our taste buds and prepare a meal around the movie’s theme. These meal themes can be colors, animals, or countries that are mentioned in the movie. An example of how this theme works is when we showed Ice Age.

But as my kids got older I started having Adult Movie Night with our friends. Each movie that we showed had some type of theme. This theme was carried out into invitations where friends were encouraged to bring a dish that applied to the theme. Our first movie night my husband and I showed Fried Green Tomatoes. As one can expect the showcased dish was the southern delicacy fried green tomatoes.

So plan your own dinner and a movie night with your family and friends and use the recipes below to start your movie tradition.
