“Now we can watch Jackie Gleason while we eat!” : BACK TO THE FUTURE EDITION

October 21, 2015
I have been looking forward to this day for a very long time.
Back to the Future was my family movie growing up. Since my parents introduced the trilogy to me when I was a baby, I can’t remember the first time I ever experienced the joy of watching it.
Also, because we used to watch it so much that the dialogue was fused into my brain and made
Marty McFly aka Michael J. Fox my first crush.

The film also taught me how to deliver my first curse word, back when I was five, I remember being scolded by my Grandmother, after she walked in on me recreating Doc’s “Damn-Damn” scene with the soundtrack blaring.

Back to the Future has remained my favorite film and you can imagine my delight when I learned that my density shared that love of BTTF.

(long story)

But BTTF was the name of our Head Table.

So, without further ado, here is my Back to the Future : October 21, 2015 : Blog Post
dedicated entirely to that 1985 classic, starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.

with Dinner and not just a movie but 3 Movies!
(No Dinner and a Movie in 1885)

For tonight’s dinner, I focused on meals from the first film.

Here are the ingredients I found at the Commissary, Fry’s and stuff my mom sent 🙂

November 5th – 12th, 1955
I Googled, 1950’s meatloaf recipe and it brought me to this:

This was a very easy and enjoyable recipe to put together.
Stan said he really liked it but I think next time, I’ll put it into the oven longer than an hour and 15 minutes.

Well, Marty, I hope you like meatloaf.

For dessert, I took the easy way and bought cake mix and already made frosting. Next time, I would definitely suggest buying extra frosting, I’d forgotten how unforgiving frosting a chocolate cake was.

Also, I’m probably going to start practicing my icing skills.

I tried to make special t-shirts for the occasion…I bought a new kind of paint, which was unwise, but I do like how they came and I think I might add an Einstein cartoon 🙂

BTTF DAY Part III a

This was first time I snuck in something other than water to the theaters…shhh…but I just thought it was appropriate to have some Peanut Brittle and Tab. I also decided to dress for the movie and I was not alone 🙂
I’m so happy that we got to see Back to the Future love from so many fellow fans.

The theater also played funny previews and commercials playing in between the first and second film.
One for Calvin Klein, Hoverboards and this gem:

And we got all this for just $5!

 Oh, and my Mom, Dad, Grandma and Gracie also got into the spirit of the day.

-PS-

Maybe on Friday, we’ll hydrate a pizza.

Fun Food Fact: You know how E.T. had Reese’s Pieces?
Remember this scene in BTTF?

“A marketer hoped to get a prominent placement for California Raisins somewhere in the film. He suggested putting a bowl of raisins on a table at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance. He had also told the California Raisins board that this would do for raisins what E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) did for Reese’s Pieces. Bob Gale informed him that a bowl of raisins would photograph like a bowl of dirt. The only thing that appears in the film is Marty jumping over Red, sleeping on a bench that is advertising California Raisins. Unhappy with their product placement, the California Raisins representatives complained to the producers, and had their five thousand dollars refunded.” imdb

this was too weird not to share, have you ever seen the one on the right?

okay, I’ll stop gushing now 😀
