Type: Theme, Fun, At-Home
Planned By: Dani
have a pretty big obsession with The Hunger Games. I am in love with
the books (and Peeta). Adam also likes the books, but doesn't have the
same crazy obsession. The first movie was due to come out on DVD August
18th and I just knew I had to plan a Hunger Games themed date for Adam
There were three parts to our date. First, we had a special dinner. We found a recipe for Katniss's favorite Capitol dish: Lamb Stew with Dried Plums.
Adam made the entire stew, and he did a very good job! It was pretty
good, but the plums were a little weird. They made the stew sweet, which
isn't a normal taste for a stew. It took him a few hours to prepare, so
our advice would be to use a slow cooker instead. We also had hot
chocolate for our drink because Katniss loved hot chocolate when she
discovered what it was. For dessert we had cookies to represent Mellark
Bakery. We decided to have snickerdoodles because we like them and they
were easy to make! Everything was yummy!
Don't worry. I may be obsessed with The Hunger Games but Harry Potter is still #1. Check out our Harry Potter Date for proof.
