It's movie night, and as for Leap! we all think, c'est tres magnifique!

It's a fun adventure set in France.  A feisty young girl sets off for Paris to follow her dreams of dancing in the ballet with her best friend in tow.  My daughter had both ballet and Paris-themed birthday parties, so I just pulled from the things I saved.  (You’ll also notice some Valentine’s decor hanging from the chandelier.)

I get a lot of use out of this little chalkboard easel.  For this movie night it displays the movie poster on one side...

and le menu on the other.

This French feast includes Chicken Cordon Bleu, Herbes de Provence potatoes, petite carrots and Pain au Lait.

The potatoes I just made up. Drizzle with olive oil and some of the seasoning and roast.  They turned out really well.

My son eats these carrots like they are going out of style.  I roast them as well... with a little maple syrup.

For dessert:  macarons and eclairs.  Délicieux!

I think the table is simple but perfect for the "ballet in Paris" theme.

Of course French music plays in the background.

We all four genuinely enjoyed this movie.  I highly recommend it.

Happy Friday!
