Captain America: The Winter Soldier Dinner

To celebrate, we did a Captain America: The Winter Soldier dinner over the weekend with my in-laws.  We had a very patriotic time!

For dinner we had Captain America's Breakfast Shield, Patriotic Popcorn, The Captain America Cocktail, Grand Old Flag Cake, and Shield Cookies.

Captain America's Breakfast Shield
I got the recipe from this website here!

Ingredients (makes five):

5 tortillas
5 eggs
5 tsp of water
Blue food coloring
1 can of refried beans
1 jar of salsa
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
5 pieces of sliced mozzarella


1. Spread refried beans and salsa generously over each tortilla, set aside.
2. Cut out five mozzarella stars from the sliced mozzarella, set aside
3. Pour 1 teaspoon of water and a few drops of food coloring in a small bowl.
4. Add 1 egg to mixture and shake around until egg white is blue.
5. Spray a small skillet with cooking spray, put a circular cookie mold on the skillet on medium high heat, and pour the egg mixture in until cooked.
6. Toast one tortilla at a time on a larger skillet.  Add the egg to the center of the tortilla.
7.  Sprinkle shredded mozzarella around the tortilla and add the cheese star on top of the egg.

Patriotic Popcorn
We used the recipe from our Sleeping Beauty dinner but we made blue and red popcorn!

The Captain America Cocktail

1 part Blue Curacao
1 part Grenadine
1 part Creme de Cacao 

Grand Old Flag Cake
This is a Wolf family staple!

Lemon Cake Mix 
Cool Whip

1. Make the cake in a 9x13 pan according to box directions.
2. Place in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
3. Cover the cake in Cool Whip.
4. Use blueberries and strawberries to create a flag!

You could also use bananas like my cousin Kara! (1000 miles away and we made the same dessert!  How crazy!!?)

Shield Cookies
I found these at the grocery store and I thought they made an excellent addition to our dinner! 

Happy 4th of July!  Olivia had so many patriotic outfits, we had to have a long weekend of Red, White, and Blue!

Well this outfit isn't patriotic... but she pooped on so many clothes, we had to wear a kitty outfit! 

Today we lost Tim's Grandma (Olivia's Great Grandma) Ann.  These fireworks were a beautiful reminder that you were watching over us!  I'm so glad I got to meet you!  We love you!
