Oh, I come from a land, from a faraway place… where the caravan camels roam… where it’s flat and immense and the heat is intense… it’s barbaric, but hey, it’s home!
I’m here to grant your wish for a unique, delicious movie night centered around one of our all-time favorites… Aladdin. We watched the original Disney classic in anticipation of the new live-action version that comes out next week.
We did this movie night years ago when the kids were pretty little and we were excited to do it all over again. It’s been remembered as a favorite over the years and the thing that sticks with them most is that we ate sitting on the floor in our living room. That’s right! We set the coffee table, covered some pillows with black tablecloths to sit on a dined as if we were in Agrabah. This little break from routine is so fun for kids… parents too.

Eating “on the floor” is just too much fun. You could also use chocolate coins for the “handsome reward.”
All we were missing was the magic carpet.
Dinner was absolutely delicious. I personally love that movie night pushes me to find recipes far outside of what I would normally cook. This night we enjoyed schwarma grilled chicken and vegetables with pitas and yogurt sauce.
I still had the recipes printed out from the last time we did this movie night. You can easily search and find something similar. As for dessert…
How ‘bout a little more baklava???
This was time-consuming, but not difficult to make. My husband and son devoured it. It’s not really my thing, but that’s okay! You can find the baklava recipe here.
This was another memorable evening and now we are all brushed up on Aladdin and ready to enjoy the new version in the theater.
This movie is one I can pretty much recite word-for-word… how about you? Will you see the new one? Happy Friday!
