It's crazy how much money we can spend on eating out each month. In my experience, half of the time we go out, the wait is super long, the place is crowded, and normally so loud that we can barely hear ourselves think let alone talk to each other. I am not sure why its so appealing.
A few months ago, I sat down and started looking over our budget. I was completely blown away when I realized that so much extra money was going to eating out. Sometimes it seems easier to just go grab something to eat, versus cooking dinner at home. Plus its fun to go somewhere, it gives us something to do.
I made the decision that I wanted to come up with a way for us to eat at home and not feel like we were missing out from not going to dinner on the weekends. I came up with the idea to have family theme nights. We take turns coming up with the theme, from the details of the dinner to the family fun we are going to have after dinner. We look forward to these nights. We help each other make dinner, we eat together, and we just have so much fun!
We decided that we are going to start sharing our theme nights with you. That way you can start this fun tradition with your family. This week we are sharing our movie night theme. This is a little more unconventional than most of our themes. We have soft pretzels with nacho cheese, and a sweet and salty popcorn bar. It's not the healthiest dinner, but hey, it's fun and delicious!
We get our plates ready and our popcorn dressed up and sit down to watch a movie together. If we are feeling real crazy, we watch a couple movies. We are just prepared to have to take turns going and getting Noah and cleaning up all of his messes during the movies.
We are so excited to start sharing our fun family dinners with you. Hope you enjoy them! Happy Monday lovelies! xo, Britt
