A full menu to eat with the family before watching Ratatouille - the kids loved making a whole theme night out of family movie night!

Family Movie Night Menu: Ratatouille

Do you guys remember this post on creating Family rituals?  From holidays to Friday nights, starting the bonding when your littles are still little is such a great idea.  I believe in the idea so much I wanted to give you all a cheat sheet of sorts on throwing together a family movie night that goes beyond pizza and popcorn (although those work too!).

The recipe here is simple: pick a flick the kids are sure to love and combine with a few easy to throw together courses that stay on theme.  This week’s special: Ratatouille with Linguini Alfredo, Co”Lettuce” Wedges, and Remy’s Eclairs.  Read on for the recipes and enjoy!
