So tonight is Family Fun Night and the beginning of the first book in the virtual reading club that we are participating in. It's the Gruffalo (which is a really cute book). I planned yummy treats and eats to go with the book the book. 

Dirt cups cheap clean (ok sort of) fun and creative fun! The recipe for this is so simple you will kick your self (ok, not literally but you will think it). I did this for dessert to represent the snake in the book.  

Dirt Cup Recipe:

1 pkg.  (16 oz.) chocolate creme Cookies

2 cups  cold milk

1 pkg.  (4-serving size)  Chocolate Instant Pudding


Crush cookies in zipper-style plastic bag with rolling pin or in food processor.
Pour cold milk into large bowl. Add pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. 
Place about 1 Tbsp. of the remaining crushed cookies in each of 8 to 10 (7-oz.) paper or plastic cups. Fill cups about 3/4 full with pudding mixture; top with remaining crushed cookies.
  Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with gummy worms just before serving. Store leftover desserts in refrigerator.

For the bourbon chicken I will be honest....I cheated forgive me! I bought it pre-packaged for this night. I used Foster Farm's Bourbon Chicken to represent the Fox in the story...so please for give me but we are having lots of food tonight and well I hate making a 6 year old wait to eat that is super excited!

There is also an owl in the story and to represent him I am using said product above and it's for Roasted Owl wings with honey cos well you can find honey in a forest right? I do hope so...if not I know my son will be happy. 

So enjoy your night as I know with mine as we read  the Gruffalo and watch the movie and enjoy all the yummy foods tonight!
