Easy movie snacks that even the laziest person can make.

With some rainy nights ahead of us, I think we can all look forward to some good movie nights to enjoy as well. Which means, to me at least, that along with just sitting on the couch entertaining yourself you also get a chance to eat to your heart's content with movie snacks. Sometimes though you want to get into the mood with the movie you're watching and I think that one of the best ways to do that is by eating something themed with the movie. Now I've seen this done a couple times before but they always mention very impossible snacks for the average lazy person to make. For example, I've seen a suggestion for Disney's "Princess and the Frog" that said something like, "If you want to be like Tiana, make beignets with a strawberry dipping sauce". I'm sorry but if I'm already in my PJ's there's no way I will be turning my deep fryer on to spend way to much time trying to make the perfect dough.

So for my version of this I'm going to be mentioning simple themed snacks that you can also find on Pinterest.

Captain America: The First Avenger


Nothing is more American than apple pie, so snack on these delicious apple pie crescent rolls that will make you wish you cooked more. Also it doesn't hurt to add ice cream to it either.

Thor

Eating these will definitely crush your dreams of having a bod like Chris Hemsworth. However, they are a certain Asgardian's favorite Midgard snack. Really all you need is premade pie dough (if you want to skip the recipe's homemade pie dough part) and a jar of nutella (which you will have to restrain from eating out of the jar first) and then they are perfect and will have you wanting another!

The Avenger's

Go with this super simple popcorn snack to represent the totally awesome kick butt Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow).

Iron Man 3

It's a bit of a stretch but technically this counts as a Christmas movie (in the same way Die Hard is pretty much).

So get into the holiday spirit, by eating everyone's favorite Snowball cookies. They're definitely something I could see Tony Stark obsessively snacking on.

Guardians of the Galaxy

These were made by yours truly. Just follow this simple cake batter cookie recipe here (preferably you'll want to use a yellow cake mix). Once you've made the batter split it into three different bowls and color the dough's separate. For the colors I used neon pink, yellow, and blue.Once they are all nice and fully colored mix them together to create this cool galaxy effect. Add some sprinkles on top to represent stars.

9 Things All Mexican Food Addicts Know All Too Well

Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

In the city I grew up in, there is a Mexican restaurant just about every five miles. They are the after school hangouts and first date go-to's for most of the kids here, especially the high school girls.

I know the servers at my favorite one know my order almost every time I go in there (at least once a week). However, a lot of people apparently get tired of eating Mexican food about twice a week... but I sure don't. If you are a Mexican food addict like me, I am sure you know at least a few of these yourself.

1. Cheese dip tastes like heaven and you have to have it.

That amazing creamy white cheese dip put on a perfectly salted chip is enough to make your day better. Forget the actual food---we'd be content living off of cheese dip and chips for the rest of our lives. Our restaurant trip is not complete without an order of it and if you are lucky enough to get your favorite waiter, maybe even get a large bowl for the night.

2. You never have to look at the menu.



We know when we decide to go what we are having and it is probably the exact same plate we order each time. I am sure the servers laugh after I order some days because there is only three things I rotate between. My burrito is always my go-to, unless I am feeling fancy.

3. Some of the servers know who you are when you walk in the door.

Either by first name or by order they know us. You are the ones that they tell to pick your own seat and already have your drink order placed by the time you sit down.

4. Your boyfriend/ girlfriend puts you on Mexican restaurant restriction on date night.


You drag them there so much, they get tired of eating there. So much so, they flat out say no when you ask to go there on date night. I mean, how does someone get tired of Mexican food to begin with though?

5. You can hum some of the songs that come on.

We may not know what they are saying in the song, but we know the song---trust us. We are in there so much we remember them. Don't ask any questions when we start humming.

6. You "have" a parking spot.

Do not park in my parking spot that is not actually my parking spot, but is my parking spot. Got it? Just do not do it. That starts my meal bad when you take my normal spot.

7. You used to hangout there all the time after school.

It was the hangout spot. Forget the nasty school lunch--- everyone goes to eat Mexican after school. It's the cool thing to do and it started your addiction.

8. You always want to introduce new people to your favorite restaurant.

Oh, you aced that exam? Let's go eat at this amazing Mexican restaurant I love! We always want to find people to go there to eat with so we always introduce new people to it.

9. People always pick on you about your addiction.


Yes, I love Mexican food. Go ahead and tag me in all the memes on Facebook about tacos. As long as I have my Mexican food, I am fine with that.

All in all, we LOVE our Mexican food and our go-to restaurants--- so here is your warning. Don't come between me and my Mexican food.

Tips For Making A Perfect Morning Smoothie

Take advantage of all the fresh fruit and vegetables during the summer season for a fresh addition to your smoothies

198

Smoothies are one of my favorite things to make for breakfast because they are quick and easy to take on the go in the morning on my way to work. Although I love smoothies in the morning, they're great after workouts any time of the day as well.

When making a smoothie for breakfast, try to keep it healthy! It can be tempting to add in some chocolate to that strawberry banana smoothie to make it a bit sweeter, or some whipped cream, but that makes it like a dessert. If you're craving something chocolate in your smoothie, add a little cocoa power or a drop of vanilla.

The base of your smoothie can sweeten your smoothie too. I frequently use coconut milk in my smoothies which is low in calories and adds a sweetness to green smoothies. Almond milk is another great base and also dairy free.

Speaking of green smoothies, don't be afraid to try them! I was so suspicious of the thought of spinach or kale ever in my smoothie and it took a while for me to finally try it. A smoothie place was serving samples of their green smoothie and I braved the jump to try it, and I loved it.

I have started to make some of my own green smoothies at home. One of my favorite combinations is mango, pineapple, spinach, and coconut milk. It also creates this amazing green color that also tastes amazing.

While it's the summer months, take advantage of local produce but frozen fruit is also a great option for some fruit that you can't always find, such as mango. Frozen fruit helps to make your smoothies the perfect cold temperature too.

Don't be afraid to switch up your smoothie combinations and test out your own recipes so you don't get tired of the same smoothie every day.
