I’m not a good cook…and no I’m not downplaying my skills. My family will wholeheartedly agree that my cooking is questionable. My husband and kids gamely eat the meals I prepare. I stick with tried and true recipes. Rarely venture from my comfort zone. Because I don’t have mad cooking skillz. I cook very simple dishes.
You know I am all about Seizing Family Time. In fact tagline of my blog is: Seizing Family Time one dinner…game night…movie at a time. A key part of seizing family time are our Family Movie Nights. We love gathering to watch new and favorite movies. I skip cooking dinner on Family Movie Nights. Instead, I heat up “Movie Snacks”…thin crust pizzas, pizza bagels, egg rolls, pot stickers, mini quiches, and many other finger foods…and we sit and watch the latest movie release. Last weekend’s movie for Family Movie Night was Aladdin: Diamond Edition!
Family Movie Night with Aladdin: Diamond Edition
First released in 1992, Aladdin: Diamond Edition is perfect for Family Movie Night. With two parents juggling work and kids’ schedules, seizing family time is difficult. I miss the days when we all ate together as a family every evening, and ate breakfast together too! But with a kid in middle school, a kid in high school, and a kid away at college, our family time takes a back seat to school projects, homework, school events, soccer games, cello practice, swim meets, and church events.
Lately we are so busy that we try to seize family time any way we can…a meal together even if the meal is eaten at 9 p.m…a trip out to a museum…or watching a movie together as a family. Seizing Family Time is VERY important for the Musings from Me family. Aladdin:
