Queenie - another great idea! I love the menu and activity ideas. If you could somehow figure out your recipe sometime and post it I would love that. I am the kind of cook where if I don't follow some sort of recipe exactly, it turns into a complete flop! Adding to the index!

Deffenm: I will try to come up with some suggestions for a fairy party. We had attempted a "Disney theme party" thread, and once we have some ideas we can post them there and put the link in here!

I tend to "eyeball" so just bare with me here, notice my excessive "abouts"!

(Four servings)
Fill a little bowl full of three or so tbs of olive oil, and lightly brush each steak using a pastry brush. In another bowl, combine your spice mixture of about four tbsp of herbes de provence and two or three tsp of sea salt. Rub each side of the steak with the mixture, using the desirable amount. Also sprinkle a dash of pepper to taste on each side. Heat a skillet on moderate-high heat filled with around two tbsp of butter and tbsp of olive/vegetable oil depending on preference. For medium rare, cook for about 5 minutes. Cook for slightly under your prefered level, and bake for a few minutes. I only tried roasting it for a minute last time and have no idea what temp I cooked it at, I may have broiled it, but when in boubt there's always 350.

I had no luck finding the type of recipe I use so I hope this is okay. Forgive me if some of the measurements are completely off!

It's a bit different, but here's a recipe that should work if mine fails. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...K-FRITES-40035

im back! been away for a while and this is my second post on this board. my new theme is mary poppins.

food - english tea and crumpets (with a spoonful of sugar if you like)
uncle alberts light-as-a-feather finger sandwiches
supercalifragilisticexpealidocious cake - some sort of cake you find indescribable which is why they use that word to describe an indescribable mood

activities - Burts (sp?) pictures - get pieces of paper and crayons and draw a scene of whatever on the paper, then if you feel like it you can pretend you are there!

chimney sweep - this I would save for the end at the end of the festivities the kids will compete to clean the house. each person has one section they have to clean and if they win they get a big piece of that cake ^_^

yeah I know these ideas are really lame but I thought of them on a moments notice.

Great ideas everyone! They have been added to the index, can you believe we are up to 63??? How amazing is that!!

I am probably one of the 3 people who actually liked "Home on the Range", so I am anxious to try it out! Love the Mary Poppins ideas, very on theme! How fun, the Apple Dumpling Gang, I'll have to show that one, I bet DD will like it now! I love the Bug's Life camping ideas too! Too many awesome ideas to mention!

Queenie, thanks for the prompt reply re: the recipe! Now I can attempt it!

Keep the ideas coming!

These ideas are so great. I just booked our trip in Nov. so I plan to do one themed night a month and then since we leave for WDW on Nov. 1st I plan to do a Mickey not so Scary Halloween Party on Oct. 31st (the day before we leave). I think doing the themed nights will make the time go by much faster. Keep up the great ideas.

Summer Magic

Movie - Summer Magic

Menu - Nancy's Buttermilk Chicken
Corn on the Cob
Mashed potatoes with gravy
Ossium Popham's Popovers
http://www.aeb.org/KidsAndFamily/rec...y_popovers.htm
"On the Front Porch" Cobbler
http://southernfood.about.com/od/cob...r/bl80301b.htm

Activities - Make Your Own Ugly Bug Ball (use modeling clay or even playdoh, and have everyone make their own ugly bug caterpillar, cricket, butterfly, etc. to bring to the ball!)
The Feminimity Race (Time each contestant to see who has the fastest time and is the winner! Set up as a relay, and for the first task the player must walk across the room with a book on her head, next time walk across the room in a pair of Mom's heels, and for the last leg the player must make an outfit complete with accessories (jewelry, belts, etc.) from a cardboard box filled with cast-off options.)
Throw an old-fashioned ice cream social for friends or your neighborhood just like the Carey's did! Buy a few tubs of ice cream and all the toppings you love (bananas, whipped cream, nuts, cherries, marshmallow topping, caramel, etc.) and set them out for all. Don't forget a cooler filled with ice to keep the ice cream cool. Set up various lawn games for your guests like croquet, bocce ball, horseshoes, etc.

**Side note: One of my all time favorites! As of this post, the whole movie can be viewed on Youtube.**

I'm not sure which category this would fall under, but we love to do 'disney game nights'. We make our favorite disney foods -- cheddar cheese soup, goofy lasagna, mickey rice krispie treats et cetera, and play Disney board games -- Princess Monopoly, Disney Trivial Pursuit, Disney DVD Bingo, or our all time favorite -- the Magic Kingdom Board Game!
