Suburban Soiree

Movie Night: Yankee Doodle Dandy

4th of July, Movie NightAmy WileyComment

We’re throwing it allll the way back to 1942 for movie night in honor of the USA with Yankee Doodle Dandy.   It’s a delightful celebration of the red, white and blue... in black and white.  You'll find yourself singing along!


We love watching old movies as a family, especially musicals.  This one is full of dancing, beauty, laughs and many familiar songs.  


We kept the menu simple and American:  cheddar brats, potato salad, and chopped BBQ ranch salad.  This is an easy but delicious dinner dressed up to celebrate the 4th of July. 


Ice cream with patriotic flare made for the most festive dessert.


Gather your people for some dinner from the grill and a bit of American nostalgia.
