Little Man finished another Harry Potter book, so we had another Harry Potter night! He finished book #5...Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. For our meal I turned again to the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook. We had a traditional dinner of Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding (which is actually breadlike and bakes in the juices from the roast so you get a great flavor). We also had PHENOMENAL roasted potatoes (also made with drippings from the roast and are scored to get super crispy on the outside while keeping a soft inside) and brussel sprouts with a bechamel sauce. And, we had to have the butterbeer...that's now a requirement...Little Man loves it so! If you'd like to try to make it yourself, you can find the recipe we use for it here, we use the simple recipe. Oh, and I found this video from Martha Stewart that was so helpful in making the dinner...it's where I got the recipe for the potatoes from too, so delicious!
And, after finishing such a big book, Little Man's treat was a golden snitch pocket watch.
Did I mention how much Hubby and I look forward to him finishing a book so we can watch the movie and eat yummy food?
