“Into the Woods” in theaters Dec 25, 2014

“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them. Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, “Into the Woods” will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014.

Frozen – Authentic Norwegian Foods

Frozen – Authentic Norwegian Foods

Frozen Blog Hop

Welcome to our stop on the amazing Frozen Blog Hop.   Be sure to check out all the Fabulous Frozen Posts!.

Would you like to dine like Anna and Elsa?   What kind of food would they have eaten?   We decided to test our cooking skills on these traditional Norwegian dishes.

Breakfast

Frozen - Norway - 2For breakfast we found Norwegian Pancakes on AllRecipes.com.Frozen - Norway - 1

Frozen - Norway - 7The simple ingredients are 3 Eggs, 1 ½ cups milk, 1 cup flour, ¼ teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sugar, couple drops of vanilla.

Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.

Heat a skillet over medium heat and coat with butter or spray.   Add batter to the skillet and tilt pan to just coat the bottom.   Pour out any excess.   Cook until the top looks dry, around 30 seconds.   Flip to cook the other side, again a few seconds will do to brown the other side.   Remove and serve with jam or cream cheese filling.  We also liked adding a bit of whipped cream to top it off.

Lunch

Frozen - Norway - 6For our lunch we decided to try a Seafood Bisque. We found this great site http://www.norway-hei.com/ with traditional Norwegian recipes. And although we used the recipe as a guideline, we also tweaked it a bit to fit our needs.

Frozen - Norway - 3We used Smoked Salmon (which we purchased while on our Disney Alaskan cruise) and Salad shrimp. Because both were ready to eat, we didn’t have to worry about cooking them. We also added about 2 ounces of cream cheese just to sweeten it up. It’s an easy recipe and even if  you add more or less of any of the ingredients, it will most likely turn out just fine.   We loved ours.
