A Bug’s Life – Dinner & Disney Movie Night
I thought with it being summer time, the first dinner & Disney movie night I would share with you should be Summer related, so we will start with A Bug’s Life.
If you are unfamiliar with this movie, a brief summary taken from IMDb website — Every year, a bunch of grasshoppers come to the anthill and eat what the ants have gathered for them. The “offering”, as the ants call the ritual, is a part of their fate. One day in spring, when the offering’s preparation has just been finished, Flik, unliked inventor ant, accidentally drops the whole offered seeds into the river. The grasshoppers come and give the ants a second chance to collect food until fall. Flik sets off to find bugs that are willing to fight the grasshoppers (nobody expects him to succeed anyway) and, due to a double misinterpretation, returns with a circus crew, giving everybody new hope. When the misunderstanding finally gets cleared out, there is only little time left for a new plan, which has to work, or else.
Our menu for this movie night —
Oven “fried” chicken
Punch Bowl Cake
Gummy Bugs (we snacked on these while watching the movie)
Iced Tea or Lemonade
I was going with a picnic/BBQ type of theme. We also had red and white checkered plates that I found at a local party supply store to round out the theme.
** Recipes for oven “fried” chicken & punch bowl cake can be found in the recipe section under “dinner & Disney movie night recipes **
Have you ever done a themed dinner night? If so, what was your theme and what did you do?
