Friday's Feast ~ Cool Runnings

>> Friday, February 12, 2010


This week for our dinner and a movie night I decided to do the movie Cool Runnings.  I thought it would be a great movie to get everyone excited about the 2010 Winter Olympics that are going to start tonight.  Daddy was the only one of us that has seen the movie before, so we were all pretty excited to watch the movie.


When the big kids got home from school we set to work getting decorations made.  We made paper chains to hang in the living room, using the colors of the Olympic rings, we made some paper torches for the table and the entertainment center and I cut out some Olympic Rings to use as part of our table centerpiece.


On the menu:

  • Jamaican Jerk Burgers {recipe from Relish! Relish!}on homemade burger buns
  • Bobsled Twice Baked Potatoes {Just a regular twice baked potato topped with cheddar & sour cream}
  • “Junior” Mint Brownies {I used my brownie recipe, put half the batter in the pan sprinkled Junior Mints on top, then covered with remaining batter, and baked as usual}

I think everyone had a great evening and I'm looking forward to doing this again.  The kids even tried the burgers and loved them even though they weren't just ordinary burgers.  We had a great time making the decorations and chatting together. 

*Next movie - Ice Age*
