Family movie night is a fun and special tradition in our household. It’s a great way for to slow down, take time and bond together as a family after a busy week filled with school, work and activities.
During the summer we like to set up a big screen and projector in our backyard and host our own “drive-in” movie, complete with a cartoon feature and movie trailers.
Now that a chill is in the air, we’ve moved the theater inside to our living room and watch movies snuggled up with blankets on our couch and a fire going in the background.
Each week a different family member gets a turn at picking the movie we’ll watch. I usually have an idea of kind of movie we’ll be watching by whose turn it is to pick that week…
If it’s my son, it’s likely to be a sci-fi or fantasy movies. My daughter loves anything animated. I tend to go for big production musicals. The Hubs? Well, he’s a bit of a wildcard. With him it could be anything — a comedy, western or some creaker of a movie, but somehow his picks always seem to be a crowd pleaser.
I like to keep dinner simple on these nights, so I can focus on spending time with the family and have fun watching the movie. I like to look for foods that I can us to quickly create one or two different meal options from.
One recent family movie night meal that was a big hit was chicken quesadillas for the kids and chopped chicken salads for us adults, both using Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips. These dishes are not only great for dinner but also for when you want to enjoy a great protein powered snacking meal!
