The Jungle Book Movie Night

It’s a king of the jungle type of #Movienightfriday, swinging in with fun of Jungle animals in The Jungle Book set in India.

We began by mapping out where India is on the map. Then we read The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling on audible.

We then made traditional Indian meals and explored Indian culture through books, music and virtual tours.

We had so much fun also singing along with the movie and dancing because thats what us Disney Peeps do.

We hope you have as much fun as we did.

My Favorite: Chana Masala- Strength & Sunshine

Chana Masala

“In celebration of “successfully” completing last week, which included: tests, tests, exams, and culminated with the SAT, I decided to go all out on my stomach and make my most favorite dish of all time. I though it would be nice too for my GF Anniversary that was coming up and a nice addition to the tests I have been putting my stomach through. Even though this is my favorite dish, it is just so dangerous to eat with my stomach. Tomatoes, spices, and beans. But when in Rome India, just go for it. And having a dish like this once in awhile, especially since my stomach has seemed to have gotten stronger, was totally worth it. And finally, Indian food is the best celebration food in my opinion. The smells, colors, flavors…o everything about it; my favorite cuisine!” – Rebecca
