When 20th Century Fox released the animated film “The Book of Life” in theaters, we immediately went to see it…twice! Its charming cast of characters and unique love story based around Dia de los Muertos (also known as Day of the Dead) made it an instant classic and guaranteed its place as a family viewing tradition for years to come.
As we eagerly await its release on Blu-Ray DVD and Digital HD, we wanted to share our excitement by offering our fans a chance to win a VIP movie experience in Los Angeles with the Cacique’s ‘Dinner & a Movie’ Sweepstakes. The experience features a behind-the-scenes Fox studio tour, private movie screening and includes round-trip airfare for 4 people with a 3-night stay in a luxury hotel that has views of the Hollywood sign.

So how do you plan the best dinner and movie night at home? Let’s start with the ‘dinner’ part. It’s important to choose meals and snacks that are easy to make and convenient for the whole family to enjoy without interrupting the movie. Typically, we like to enjoy a meal consisting of a variety of appetizers that can be passed around as we all sit on the couch together. The less silverware we need, the better! Take a look at some of our favorite ‘Dinner & Movie’ recipes from Cacique® bloggers around the web.
