It’s summer and a heat wave is coming through! No, it’s not the weather I’m talking about, but rather the hot attraction between Johnny and Baby. Confused? Would it help if I mentioned that it’s the 25th anniversary of the ever famous movie, Dirty Dancing?! I can’t believe 25 years have gone by since I this movie came out. I was 11 years old at the time it premiered at the theaters but didn’t watch it until I was in my later years of high school. Any girl who watched this movie had a crush on Patrick Swayze… it was hard not to! So fast forward to tonight, I’m watching the movie again with family and friends to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Dirty Dancing®!
For my Dirty Dancing® party, it took me awhile to come up with a menu. The movie takes place in a resort set in the Catskill Mountains during the summer of 1963. Drawing from the characters of the movie and food of the 1960’s, I came up with a menu that ties in the summer. For my Dirty Dancing® party, I served up:
with Robbie’s Crude-ites
Big Jake’s Grilled Burgers & Chips
As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a stipend, DVD, and coupons for free Skinny Cow® product.
