Shark Week really reeled us in this year and it's made for some fun family evenings. We've learned things, been grossed out, and of course a little scared! All this excitement inspired me to put together a Shark Week dinner.
I picked up shark gummies and two varieties of Swedish Fish. Other than that, I used things we already had. I asked my kids to round up any shark toys and in just a few minutes we were swimming in sharks. Ha!
My son crafted shark fins out of paper and added them to the table.
For dinner I served one of our favorite summer meals: grilled bbq bacon shrimp and smoked gouda grits, with a chopped salad.
The candy began to disappear the minute it went on the table.
The little bit of extra effort that went into this dinner made a regular Wednesday night an extra fun occasion.
Of course now I'm already scheming to go BIG for Shark Week next year!
