With the new Lion King releasing this week I thought it would be fun to enjoy the original with a themed movie night. I was a Lion King kid growing up and will sing ALL the songs, so “be prepaaaaared”!
No movie night would be complete without a special menu. Here’s what we served.
Warthogs in a Blanket
Hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls = easy and cute. Top them off with a slice of hot dog decorated with food coloring for the perfect snout.
Hakuna Ma-Tater Tot-A
Hakuna Matata as probably the best song in the movie and tater tots are arguably the best form of potato. It was just meant to be.
Mufasa Fruit Platter
Scar wanted nothing more than Mufasa’s head on a platter, and while I can’t get behind Scar I can support some Mufasa plate art with fruit. Strawberries, raspberries, and mango made the perfect mane. I printed an image found online for the head and made it fruit-proof inside a plastic folio trimmed down.
Dirt & Grubs
The Prideland’s version of dirt and worms is “slimy, yet satisfying”! All you need is instant chocolate pudding, oreos, and gummy worms.
We definitely felt the love tonight!
