In honor of the recently deceased Gene Wilder, we did a dinner for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. We had such a fabulous time enjoying his fabulous work and our quirky meal!
For dinner, we had Augustus Gloop's German Tube Sausage, Mike Teevee's TV dinner, Veruca Salt's Golden Eggs, Violet Beauregarde's Blueberries, Charlie Bucket's Fizzy Lifting Drinks, Everlasting Gobstoppers, and a Wonka Bar.
Augustus Gloop's German Tube Sausage:
I bought some fancy sausage from the meat department and Tim boiled them on the stovetop. Serve with sauerkraut and some German beer if you wish!
Mike Teevee's TV Dinner
Kid's Cuisine, of course!
Veruca Salt's Golden Eggs
We had both good and bad eggs from the egg-decator. I hardboiled eggs and dyed them with a half cup of warm water, 1 teaspoon of vinegar, 20 drops of yellow food coloring, and 3 drops of orange food coloring.
Violet Beauregarde's Blueberries
We had blueberries for us and blueberries (mixed with apples) for Olivia.
Charlie Bucket's Fizzy Lifting Drinks
We had sprite leftover and used that!
I used gobstoppers, jellybeans, and white icing to make it look like the movie!
Of course, we had to have a Wonka bar!
"We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams"
Rest in peace, Gene Wilder.
