A few months ago, my daughter was telling me about this video from that is based on the movie Clueless. Then my daughter confirmed my one of my fears of being a neglectful parent: she had never seen the movie Clueless.
To rectify this we immediately had a movie night and had a meal and snacks inspired by food featured in the movie “Clueless. ” Of course the cast would have meals because school but we checked out some of the other ways food played a part in the movie and ate our way through 1995’s Clueless.
Orange Juice (The Bee): Cher was always trying to get Mel, her dad, to eat and live healthier.
Coffee (for me): Cher and Dionne gave Ms. Geist and Mr. Hall a thermos of coffee when the girls were playing matchmaker.
Cookies: Cher had cookies “baking” in an attempt to win over Christian.
Popcorn, M&Ms, Twizzlers: When asked to cut gym, Cher shares her breakfast and why she felt like such a heifer to Dionne.
Sandwiches: Josh makes a sandwich during scene with Cher, right after Cher commits to making Tai a “better person.
During her next day off we are going to become Ferris Bueller day and play tourists for the day. Other titles available to share with your teen:
Fridaty Night Lights: Football season is here and we may check out the area high school when they play at home.
The Breakfast Club: Shedding those stereotypes one person at a time during an early morning movie sharing.
The Vampire Diaries: Late Night marathon watching complete with fruit punch and steak.
