Games and Movies for an Adult Holiday Get Together (My Family’s Favorites)

My family is all grown up. I’m the youngest out of my immediate family, so we have long tossed aside many of the younger games we enjoyed when I was a kid. Thank goodness for the recent boom in adult-targeted board games that put Hungry Hungry Hippos to shame, and I’m not talking about all the raunchy ones like Card Against Humanity either, just good ole mature fun. If your family is like mine, here are some entertainment ideas that your adult family can enjoy together this holiday season!

P.S. Love Mom: Pot Roast (A Passed Down Recipe)

Growing up this was one of the meals I never really craved but didn’t hate having either. However, when I went and got my first apartment, moved out, and started to see family less, I called my mom to give me the recipe. This dish means a lot to me and just feels like a big hug from her whenever I make it. I was a little shocked to find out that this recipe is so easy and just gives me more of a reason to want to make it often.

Not Your Mama’s Meatloaf Recipe (gluten-free)

Now before you roll your eyes and start scrolling off to somewhere else on the internet, hear me out. I didn’t grow up on meatloaf, so when I made it, I didn’t know it was supposed to be excessively greasy, dry, and be forced upon a family at least once a week. Okay, I’m kidding, but seriously, this stuff is darn delicious and doesn’t fit meatloaf stereotypes. This recipe is full of flavor, easy to whip up, and is one of Derek’s favorites.

P.S. Love Mom: French Toast – A Passed Down Recipe (Series Debut)

Growing up my mom was the best person in my mind (and still is today). She always let us have friends over, do whatever we wanted (or so we thought), and she always made breakfast on Sunday morning. One of the family favorites for breakfast was french toast. Now, growing up I didn’t know that my mom made the best french toast, so when I would go to friend’s houses or restaurants and have french toast I was always disappointed. So here is the super secret french toast recipe! 😉

Throwback Thursday: Five Films from the 2000’s and Earlier That You Need to See #3

It’s already been a month since my last movies post, can you believe it?! These are by far my favorite to write, and I’m so glad it is time for another installment. If you are new here, this little series on the blog is dedicated to sharing movies from the past. Maybe you have seen them, maybe you haven’t. Either way, these are great movies you may have missed, may not have even been alive for their release, or maybe you have long forgotten about them (and should totally give them a rewatch in that case).
