Dinner and Movie Recipe ratatouille & garlic bread

Dinner and A Movie with a  family Friendly movie
This is my new post for Thursdays. I hope you Enjoy it and get the chance to have dinner and a movie with your family as well.

One of our favorite things to do is have dinner and a movie night. The kids love it!  We have made a list of movies and ideas on what to eat for dinner the night you watch it.  

Now showing in  Theater 1

Egg plant
Red pepper (small)
4 zucchini
Large onion
 Garlic clove chopped up
Large can chopped tomatoes
Tomato puree
2 tablespoons’ olive oil
2 pinches basil (dried or fresh will do)
 5 seasons: a container with an equal mixture of Salt, pepper, seasoning salt, onion, and garlic powder. It is easy to mix them up as I use this mixture for almost everything I cook.  

·        First slice your eggplant and Zucchini, Salt them and let them stand 1 hour.  It is said to draw out the bitterness and moisture by doing so. Rinse them and then wipe them dry.
·        Chop up and fry your onion, garlic and pepper in olive oil. I like to season them as well with 5 seasons. Fry 10-12 minutes
·        Add Zucchini and eggplant, and then stir to coat everything with oil.
·        Add basil tomato and tomato puree and season with 5 seasons.
·        Simmer 30 minutes with lid and then remove the lid to cook for another 10-15 minutes.

Garlic Bread
½ stick butter mixed with 2 teaspoons Lawry’s Garlic salt with Parsley
  Cut slits in French bread about ¾ the depth of and 1 inch apart , Stuff butter garlic mixture into each, wrap in foil and cook 30 minutes at 400F When I was a kid I loved the garlic bread that came in the foil. I never find that anymore. I will add another movie and recipe next week. All movies will be family friendly.

 I can not find the pictures of it when it was done. 

Now showing in Theater 2
Lilo and Stitch 1 & 2 

Hawaiian Pizza (pineapple and ham )
Ohana punch 
(We have Ohana punch at plumbs in Newaygo. If you don't then just buy what ever punch and call it ohana punch.) 

Movie Quote: "Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten."

From my family to yours thank you for reading our post and we hope you enjoy!

I am looking for guest posters for crafts and recipes or anything else you might want to share.  If you are interested contact me! 

I am still working on my new years goals and will be posting them soon. It was a long list what can I say!

I also can not wait to get the chance to write my Simple Woman's Day Book post.  I never did write one for December as I was so busy. 
Remember coming up this month is my 1st giveaway for the Uncommon Life book.  This is a devotional book that could be used for a man or woman but  would make a great gift for your husband as it is written by an ex-football coach. 

Please leave a comment we would love to hear from our readers.

Thank you so much for your kind comments. After I have recently began getting many spam comments with links in them to sites that are less than family friendly, I decided to stop allowing anonymous comments.
