Ohana Means Family; Our Lilo and Stitch Day

This weeks theme was Lilo and Stitch, one of my favorite Disney characters of all time. You would think the day, and the food would go perfect… aha, this day just did not work out at all.

It all started yesterday when I couldn’t find a star cookie cutter for my star fish s’mores. Ugh. So I decided to make a fish shape, well lets just say I wasted my night making something that didn’t even work. So that went to waste.

This morning started out pretty smooth, I had everything set up before my daughter woke up, minus breakfast; I was in the middle of it when she ran into the kitchen. She was greeted with cloud dough, and a picture of Lilo and Stitch on the beach.


She loved it, and it kept her occupied through most of the mess I was making for breakfast. She finally got bored and so I put the movie on while I finished up. Breakfast was a success, minus the “crunchy” French toast. It was eh, I am not a fan to begin with, and my daughter never touched it.

After that I spent most of the morning cleaning up the mess I had made. When I finally finished that, we made palm trees with the girls hands. It was my two month olds first project haha. That went okay. Lunch was just simple, nothing Lilo and Stitch related, I think I was just to frustrated with some of these recipes to make something extravagant.

So then we turned on the special features on the Lilo and Stitch big wave edition DVD, and learned a few hula moves.

I had also made hula skirts and leis, the night before, we put those on to dance to.

After dancing I went inside to make pineapple upside down cakes. Ha. That was fun. I tried so hard to get the recipe perfect, but they did not turn out that way. They were more like .. Pineapple upside down… disasters?? They taste okay, a little too buttery for me. They are meant for after dinner, but I may just go with vanilla ice cream and sprinkles haha.

For dinner, which seems to be the best turn out of the day was, sweet Hawaiian crock pot chicken. It turned out yummy, but looked nothing like the picture on Pinterest, go figure.


Crockpot Chicken
Although today wasn’t as successful as last week, I am still glad we did it; My daughter was so excited to hula dance, and celebrate one of our favorite movies together.

Next weeks plan is to have a Blues Clues day, I have some simple ideas that won’t let the whole day go to waste cleaning up the kitchen. We all know cleaning up the kitchen is my least favorite thing to do, besides cooking.
