Christmas Movie Night Snacks

Pillsbury has a fab easy Christmas WOW Guide with a tonne of fun recipes on their website including these Christmas Stocking mini pizzas.

If you're looking for recipes inspired by the Christmas movies you're watching, you might try Roast Beast aka turduken or Who Hash with The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. In Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer there is an argument  about whether the fog is a thick as Pea soup or Peanut butter. For Elf  you could serve anything from the four candy groups, or spaghetti - minus the maple syrup.

What's Showing? The Nativity Story a 2006 epic biblical drama chronicles a100 mile perilous journey 9 months pregnant Mary needs to make with her husband Joseph in order to comply with a government census ordered by King Herod.  This is rated PG for some violence.
The Nativity Story
Reviews on Rotten Tomatoes showed 76% of people who saw this movie liked it. I remember thinking when I was expecting my daughter-at least I'm not having to travel 100 miles on the back of a donkey! Perhaps this movie will resonate with you too.
