A Christmas Story Dinner

We are getting in the holiday spirit with our dinner for A Christmas Story!

For dinner we had The Chinese Restaurant's Mongolian Beef, Triple Dog Dare Ya Dogs, an Ovaltini, OHHHHHHHHFUUUUUUDDDDGGGGEEE, and "Wash your mouth out" Soap.

Chinese Restaurant's Mongolian Beef
I found this recipe here

1/2 cup of soy sauce
1lb of steak, cut into strips 
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup of cornstarch
1 tablespoon of garlic, minced
2/3 cup of brown sugar
Green onions, sliced for garnish
Vegetable oil

1. Heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a skillet.  Add ginger and garlic and cook for two minutes.
2. Add soy sauce and water.
3. Stir in brown sugar and increase to medium heat and bring to a boil.
4. Let boil for three minutes and then remove from heat and set aside.
5. Toss steak with cornstarch.
6. Place wok over medium high heat with 1/2 cup of vegetable oil.
7. Add steak and saute for 2 minutes. 
8. Remove steak from the pan and transfer to a plate.
9. Get all of the oil off of the steak and the empty pan.
10.  Add the brown sugar mixture to the wok (which should boil almost instantly now that it's so hot).
11. Add steak and green onions and cook for two minutes
12. Serve over rice.

Triple Dog Dare Ya Dogs
Here's the recipe that we tweaked a bit!

1 package of little smokies
2 cups of ketchup
3/4 cup of bourbon
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/3 of a diced onion

Combine all ingredients in the crockpot.  Cook on high for an hour and then bring the heat down to low for 45minutes. 

We took this recipe and tweaked a bit

2oz of Whipped Vodka
1/2oz of Creme de Cacao
2 Tablespoons of Ovaltine

We used Nordic Fudge that we got from our Try the World box.

"Wash Your Mouth Out" Soap
I melted down a package of red andes mints in a saucepan with a little bit of milk on low heat.  I transferred it to a rectangular container.  Stick in the freezer until frozen. 

We all had to wash our mouths out but Olivia liked it a little more than expected!
