Date 77 - You're My Hero!

Date: Saturday, February 23, 2013
Type: At Home, Theme
Cost: $
Planned By: Dani

I wanted to plan a more manly date for Adam. He has been wanted to see the Avengers for some time so I thought an Avengers theme date would be perfect. We needed a pretty cheap date this week because the previous two and the next two dates will be a bit more expensive.

We rented the Avengers on blu-ray from Red Box. I love $1 movies.
I wanted to think of some good food that represented some of the avengers to snack on during the movie. I only did three to keep it a bit cheaper.

1. Captain America Parfaits - red jello, blue jello and whip cream! Red, white and blue goodness!

2. Thor Hammers - cheese cubes and pretzels. They look like cute little hammers. Too bad they have no special power.

3. Hawkeye Wings - chicken wings. We know hawkeye doesn't fly, but Adam wanted chicken wings so it kind of fit.

This is all we had, but we had a great time watching the movie and eating our snacks. It was really cheap and easy to prepare. Obviously, this wasn't all out like our Harry Potter Themed date, but it was still a lot of fun, manly, and yummy!

Here are some other ideas if you want to do this date for your man.
Captain America: Captain Crunch, Shield decorated cookies, anything red white and blue
Thor: lightning cookies, electric lemonade
Hawkeye: bugles to represent arrow tips
Black Widow: make spider cookies
Iron Man: pump some iron together and get the adrenalin going, make iron-manwiches
Hulk: have lots of green vegetables or make a green drink
Have fun!
