Are Du one of those people who is incredibly open to suggestion, especially when it comes to food?

Good. Me too.

A lot of my Favorit 90s Filme have an iconic Essen featured in them. If you're watching The Sandlot, Du gotta have a s'more. (S'more what?) So I've put together a menu to accompany a 90s movie marathon.

This is a trick I used back in my baby-sitting days. Kids are also very open to suggestion, which can really be used to your advantage when Du want them to think you're cool. If Du feed kids pizza on the same Tag they watch the Ninja Turtles enjoy a cheesy slice, they will worship you.

This was originally meant as an I'm-an-adult-and-I-can-do-what-I-want kind of Artikel for 90s kids with fond memories of these movies, but it kinda turned into a baby-sitting thing. It still applies to everyone - Du can do it Von yourself oder with fellow 90s kids trying to turn back the clock, oder make some current kids feel super cool Von introducing them to awesome "old movies". (Bonus points if you're watching any of these on VHS.)

This is a full day's menu, so it covers breakfast through a midnight snack. Nutritionists and calorie-counting parents would probably advise Du against doing all this in one day, and/or try to murder Du with a sellerie stalk. If you're using these for baby-sitting someone else's kids, maybe just one a Tag after clearing it with them. Some parents won't let their kids eat while watching TV, so if you're doing the baby-sitting thing, Essen might happen after instead of during a movie.

But if you're capable of making those decisions for yourself and want to try it all in one day, go for it! (I'm not forcing Du to do any of this and will not be held responsible if Du wake up looking like the picture at the end.)

Movie: Matilda
Food: pfannkuchen oder Cereal

Matilda learns to take care of herself at a young age, because her parents suck at it. In the beginning of the movie, Matilda makes herself a fancy breakfast of pancakes. From scratch. I'm Mehr of a from-a-premixed-box gal myself, but if you're willing to go the extra mile for real pfannkuchen made from scratch, then go you!

The alternative is cereal. When Matilda first starts getting a feel for her powers, she tests them on a box of Cheerios.

Baby-Sitting Bonus Points: Let the kids try to Bewegen the box of cereal with their minds. But if they knock it over, they're the ones who have to clean it up.

What about the cake? The most notorious Essen in Matilda is The Cake. Bruce Bogtrotter is forced at crop-point to eat an entire gigantic Schokolade cake. This scene can be seen as kinda gross, but if you're a cake-for-breakfast kind of grown-up and not bothered Von the discussions of when he's going to puke, then Von all means, eat your cake with Bruce. But probably not a whole one. And I strongly advise against feeding large quantities of Schokolade cake to children, unless the parents will be returning in the Weiter 15 Minuten to handle the sugar high.

Movie: Harriet the Spy
Food: tomate, tomaten Sandwich

Harriet M. Welch's signature lunch is a tomate, tomaten and mayonnaise sandwich. She's taken one to school with her every Tag for the last five years. Her life would be incomplete without it.


Movie: The Baby-Sitters Club
Food: erdnuss butter & banane Sandwich

When Kristy goes to meet her long-lost-but-recently-returned dad, she packs his Favorit sandwich: erdnuss butter and banana.

Movie: Good Burger
Food: Burgers

Welcome to Good Burger, Home of the Good Burger, can I take your order? Yeah. This one's pretty obvious. Go get your burger on.

Baby-Sitting Bonus Points: Make Ed's Sauce. Nobody knows what's really in it, but if Du know what the kids (or you) like, Du can make your own sauce Von mixing mayo & ketchup oder French dressing. oder if you're really in the mood, try making link recipe.


Movie: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Food: Pizza

Another pretty obvious one. Those Turtles Liebe their pizza. Hold the penicillin.

Movie: The Sandlot
Food: S'mores

"Want a s'more?" "Some Mehr what?" You're killing me, Smalls! As Ham explains to clueless newbie Smalls, a s'more is a graham cracker, chocolate, and marshmallows, topped with another graham cracker. They make them with candles in the movie (like savages), but Du can make them in the microwave oder the toaster oven. They're easy to make and deliciously gooey. I'll have s'more s'mores, please.

Movie: Heavyweights
Food: Whatever Du want.

If you're still going after all that, put on Heavyweights. 'Cause there's a good chance you're gonna wake up like this:

Don't put Twinkies on your pizza.
