You could use crescent roll dough from a can. I'd just roll the bottom layer flat, top with sandwich type toppings, then roll another layer flat, cut it into strips and braid it, the put it over the toppings and bake.

It's Nemo night here. I'm off to try and make blue Jello. Yes, try. I CANNOT make Jello. It's painful and a longtime family joke: I had bleeding ulcer issues when I was 15, spent 2 months in the hospital and ate nothing but Jello for a month and apparently have flashbacks or something when I try to make it for the kids.

I also gag while I'm watching it wiggle, but that's a whole nother issue for a therapy session

Tonight was Finding Nemo movie night





Fishie glasses


Minnie in her goggles


Found a Nemo cutout for 29 cents


DD was the helper tonight


Buffet line. We had fish sticks (which we realized our 7 year old had never had!) shrimp cocktail, mac n cheese with goldfish crackers, pineapple spears (tentacles) blue jello with gummy fish and Crush soda. Total junk food night (most of which I can't eat because of food allergies, so I'm ready for a sandwich!)


Crush soda


Fishsticks are food, not friends


Bruce the Shark squirt guns


They don't usually dress alike. Today was field day


Going fishing




Finding Nemo

These ideas are so cute! We started doing Disney movie nights to count down to our September trip. Since it is just me and DH we aren't going all out. (But I totally would if I thought he would go along with it!) Last week we watched Lion King. For dinner, we had flamingo (chicken), slugs (mac and cheese), and maggots (rice and corn). It was so much fun! Thanks for all of the great ideas!

Thanks!
I did. I got the recipe for the pizza one here... http://www.squidoo.com/homemade-calzone

I used a pre-made Pillsbury thin crust. Then the other is ham and cheese I made with a Pillsbury crescent sheet. I used mustard and sharp cheedar on it. I was surprised how easy they were to make (and how FAST they went!). I've actually made them for dinner a few times since. lol

To go along with the kick off of Star Wars Weekends (which we sadly won't be going to this year ) we had a marathon Star Wars day.



Movie snacks



















For crafts we made lightsabers from pool noodles and Sam and I put together a Star Tours Starspeeder. Our activities were coloring pages and 2 puzzles they did while watching the movies.













Dinner was Han Burgers, Boba Fettucine Alfredo and a yummy quinoa salad DH brought home from his restaurant.







Dessert was Princess Leia cupcakes and green jello


Han Solo trapped in carbonite aka green jello

That is a great Star Wars night! We were going to have one recently but we were all sick so we put it off. I love the pool noodle lightsabers, Han's Rolos, and the jello carbonite. Honestly I just love everything about it. Great job!

Too funny Lisa! We had a Star Wars night too. It was VERY unplanned, as I'm new to the whole Star Wars thing since my 6 year old has pretty much just discovered the awesomness of it, and I had no idea of the significance of "May the 4th". Anyway... that night I threw together a quick dinner in honor. DS was psyched! DD, not so much.

For dinner... Jabba the "Hutt Dogs", Boba Fett-uccine and Vader Taters



For drink... Yoda Soda



For dessert... Wookiee Cookies and Pretzel Lightsabers



Movie snacks... Princess "Lays" with Droid Dip and Palpatine's Popcorn

Last week we had our Aladdin movie night. We didn't do one this week, since we had so much other stuff going on, but next week is Finding Nemo!

I made the kids Abu hats....





Dinner table! The "magic carpet" is a scarf I got at my craft store for $5!


Centerpiece


For dinner we had Ali Ababawa Kebobs, couscous, Jafar's "so twisted" fries, "stolen" bread and butter and Genie juice. This is the first time my kids have ever had Kool-aid and they HATED it! LOL! I've never given it to them becuase I hated it as a kid. Looks like they don't fall far from this tree, huh?











Their beards are "so twisted"....





Since this is pretty pic heavy.... to be continued....

I am doing the same as you by doing one a month until our trip because we still have 9 months to go. I am seeing so many great ideas that it is hard to narrow down. I may have to up it once we get closer and go to every other week.
