When falls rolls around, it brings along chilly temperatures and rainy days, making it harder to find fun things to do outdoors. This doesn’t mean the fun has to end! The indoors has plenty of fun times to offer as well. You just need to use your imagination a bit! Whether you’re looking for a date night idea or something for the whole family, you really can’t go wrong with dinner and a movie at home. I partnered with BabbleBoxx to share all the essentials you need to make it an absolute success!
All the Essentials for an Amazing “Dinner & a Movie” Night at Home
Dinner Mixers by Tastefully Simple
For the “dinner” part of our dinner and a movie night, we used the recipe and spices from the Dinner Mixers kit. All we had to do was get the extra items needed and then use the premade collection of spices to make the dinner and side dish. Let me tell you, it was delicious and half of us went back for seconds. I’m always tripping over myself when it comes to selecting the right seasonings for my family’s meals. I want it to be unique and the Dinner Mixers seasonings definitely were.

Chef’n Twist’ n Sprout and Stalkchop
While waiting for dinner to finish up, we used our new brussels sprouts prep tool to make a tasty and healthy appetizer. It was super easy to use and made the task of making brussels sprouts much quicker than usual. We also chopped up some cauliflower with our new Chef’ n Stalkchop for an addition to the brussels sprouts appetizer. I’ve always hated getting fresh cauliflower because it was a pain to get down to the root of those stalks. This tool made it feel like a breeze.

Popcorn, Indiana Kettle Corn
Movie time! We picked out a fabulously frightening movie that was just perfect for the season, then settled in with our snacks. Of course, you can’t watch a good flick without popcorn, right? We got a tasty sample of Popcorn, Indiana Kettle Corn along with a coupon for a full-size bag. We went with the sweet and salty, but you can find everything from Sea Salt to Chicago Style Caramel to Cheese & Smoky Queso. They even have absolutely amazing drizzled popcorn! All of the varieties are made with non-GMO corn and are certified gluten-free. We loved the fresh taste and the fact that it wasn’t overly oily like some popcorn brands.

Peanut Butter & Co. Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter
You know what makes a great movie snack? Apple slices with pumpkin spice peanut butter! Yes, you heard me right, pumpkin spice peanut butter. The rich taste made the fall spirit of the evening settle in even more. It’s made with real pumpkin and is tasty on much more than just bread. It’s made right here in the USA with non-GMO peanuts and contains not one bit of cholesterol, trans fat, or hydrogenated oils. Not to mention, it’s dairy and soy free! What’s even neater, is the company has some pretty amazing recipes using their pumpkin spice peanut butter on their website. If you liked it as much as we did, go grab some more and don’t forget to use your $1 off coupon when you do!
All those yummy treats made for some pretty sticky situations. Since we didn’t want to jump up and wash our hands every five minutes during the movies, we used Wet Ones to keep our hands clean. They wipe out 99.9% of germs, yet they’re still super gentle on our skin. I keep packs of them all over the place: around my house, in my purse, my car, pretty much everywhere. That way, I never have to deal with dirty hands. Check out the Wet Ones website to learn more.
Overall, our fall evening turned out to be a success thanks to all these awesome “dinner and a movie” essentials! You don’t have to spend a fortune to have a great time at home during the fall. As long as you’re spending time with the people you love, just about anything goes!
