So Saturday nights on the pond are family Dinner and a Movie nights. I have decided to share these with you, in case you want to start this tradition with your own Froglets. The conditions are – the movie has to be family friendly (each family has to choose that one on their own), dinner is served in a theme with dessert, popcorn follows and fun is had by all. I had planned to do a cactus craft with the froglets to decorate for this movie night, but somehow in the rush of Saturday it didn’t happen. 😦 I make a poster to go in the house and one on the front door to remind the froglets that this is a special night, and to remind Papa Frog if he happens to be working. (A printable PDF of the image can be found at the bottom of this page)
One package chicken legs (we use the family size with approximately 42 chicken legs- no I reckon it is more like 10-14)
One bottle of marinade (or make your own)- this was a southwestern chipotle marinade
Marinade legs for 2 hours, then grill until cooked through.
TUMBLEWEED TOSSED IN PESTO
This was just 1 1/2 lbs of pasta with some pesto and parmesean cheese on top.
Green beans and corn.
MUDDY WATER FLOATS
Root Beer Floats
What can I say? I was not terribly prepared this past week for movie night, but I have found that if you are even slightly creative, you can make family movie dinner night work with any menu. This month I am planned a little better. So, stay tuned for Princess and the Frog, TMNT, Mary Poppins and Rio 2 (not necessarily in that order!)
