I’ve posted some photos in various groups, but never went into detail about the new family tradition of movie night.
One of the things I’ve been trying to do this year is to do more activities with my family and find things we can all enjoy. We are also heading to Disney in 2019 and I’ve seen a lot of Pinterest posts about Disney Family Movie nights with a countdown to Disney.
So in the ultimate challenge, I decided to start doing family movie nights as our countdown to Disney, but make everything Weight Watchers friendly.
Let’s start with our first family movie night: Beauty And The Beast (the new Live Action one, which is on Netflix).
There was a lot of singing as I created this menu (now try reading it without singing)
For the hot Hors d’Oervers (still can’t pronounce it), we decided on an oldie but goodie Weight Watchers recipe of cut up chicken wrapped in crescent rolls with honey mustard to dip it in (Two bites were two points!)
The crockpot french onion soup, while I liked the taste of it, made everything smell like onions for forever. But was an easy recipe (After I chopped all the onions) and put it in the crockpot with beef broth and chicken brother. Started the crockpot at 7 am before my meeting that morning and we had dinner at five. Well, okay Twothy and I ate it with some mozzarella cheese and the girls scoffed.
Cheese Souflee was actually cloud bread that I’m not even going to show a picture of because it basically looked like a flat egg. This was before I discovered the magic of two-ingredient bread. Next time I’d prefer just to have that with some melted Kraft cheese (the one thats 0 points for 1/4 cup!)
The grey stuff was a favorite to make and eat. This was basically crushed up oreo thins, sugar-free vanilla pudding mix, milk, and whipped cream, all mixed together. Then we chilled it for a few hours and put in little pastry shells (better without it honestly).
Then, of course, the activities. I wanted to make stained glass roses, so I took some freezer paper and taped it onto computer paper before printing out a rose coloring sheet. We colored the roses with markers then peeled the freezer paper off the computer paper. When we put it on the door it looked like a beautifully stained glass masterpiece (or as beautiful as a kid can do).
Hopefully, you found these fun to look at and below are some links so you can find the recipes and activities of your own!
