Spaghetti with a Chance of Meatballs
Have you watched "Cloudy with a chance of meatballs?"
What a fantastic animation movie! We got the DVD as a gift last weekend, and I think the boys must have watched it 25 times. It's every child's dream to have food raining from the sky, and skipping in puddles of ice cream and lollipops don't you think?
The movie is about a scientist, Flint who invented many quirky contraptions like spray on shoes, "rat-birds", monkey thought interpreter and his latest, a machine that changes water into food, any sort of food you would ever dream of! But somehow, somewhere, something went amok. What happens when you have too much food "raining" from the sky? Can you imagine a "food flood"?
So Flint and his friends had to find their way to shut down the food machine.
I think it's quirky, it's so funny, and it has an interesting storyline. The characters are genuine and so cute, and I find myself addicted to the tunes. Couldn't get the sunshine, lollipops and rainbows out of my head!
So I made spaghetti and meatballs the other night, and the kids thought I was such an awesome scientist! And they said please mom, could you make it rain M&M's next?
(Of course there are veges in your meatballs, you suckers! Hahahahhahaha....)
