I’ve not had much time to be too crafty this last week or so as we have made a start on Bubs nursery and I’ve been busy with visitors and work, but I did take some time out on Sunday, to enjoy some of my biggest obsession…TV.
As a massive Arrested Development fan I was incredibly excited for Sunday to finally come around so we got 15 new episodes on Netflix. My brother was visiting and our best friend came over to join in on what was planned as a 7.5 hour marathon to devour the new series in one go. So I decided to make a few show based snacks to enjoy throughout the episodes.
First up were Bluth bananas, 10c gets you nuts!:
Next I made this awesome Cornball recipe, that I found on The Food In My Beard; a great blog with lots of AD themed recipes, they were really yummy and we dipped them in ketchup and sour cream & chive dip, we learnt that the old saying ”every damn time!” really does apply when deep frying these, even without the Cornballer!
I wish that more of our friends loved Arrested Development so we could have made a bigger deal out of it and thrown in some Juice Boxes, Jellybeans, Mayoneggs and Hot Ham Water but unfortunately it was just the four of us. Some of the pictures on Instagram tagged #BluthParty really are amazing and some people went all out whilst welcoming our favourite family The Bluths back with open arms!
We started late due to getting bit in the nursery done and only managed 10 episodes in one go (what more do you want from me I’m 29 weeks pregnant!) but I wasn’t the only one flagging and after deciding that the episodes deserved our full attention, we awoke fresh and ready Monday morning and finished off the last 5, we all loved it and I can’t wait to watch it all over again!
