Disney Dinner and a Movie: ‘101 Dalmatians’
101 Dalmatians is another one of Disney’s timeless tales. Who doesn’t love watching a bunch of adorable puppies run from perhaps the scariest villain in Disney history. I mean c’mon, the lady wants to kill puppies. Who does that?! This is one of my favorite films with some of my favorite characters (Rolly!). The meal I made for this movie includes some British classics as well as something brand new to this column.
For the first time in the history of my column I cooked something specifically for my dog to eat rather than myself. The recipe is completely edible by humans if you’re looking for something to share with your pooch. These gluten-free dog treats are my choice for homemade “Kanine Krunchies”. My own canine Lucy loved them!
Since there’s not much food in this movie I used inspiration from Cruella’s henchmen eating baked beans from a can. This gave me the chance to make a decidedly British snack that I’ve always wanted to try: beans on toast. After some internet research I realized you must you Heinz beans and no other kind. It’s the simplest of recipes and I wasn’t expecting much. It turns out beans on toast really does make a great snack.
For dessert I decided to make black and white cookies to represent the wonderful and numerous Dalmatian darlings in the film. I cheated and used store-bought icing instead of making it myself but the cookies from this recipe were yummy and came out perfectly texture and shape-wise. This was a delicious dessert than everyone loved!
101 Dalmatians is one of my favorites and this meal was the perfect for both me and my own pup!
