Y’all. My husband is going to make someone a mighty fine wife someday. I should probably be ashamed that his party skills far exceed my own, but I’ve decided to roll with it. I have to be good at….something. Anyway, last night we had Family Marvel Night to celebrate Lego Marvel Super Heroes and Agents of SHIELD. This is some Pinterest worthy stuff that’s about to go down. (Oh, and, yes, he made the signs.)
The main course was supposed to be this:
I mean, Agent Coulson is the star of Agents of SHIELD, and he’s always talking about his trip to Tahiti and how it was magical. Those were marinated in a Hawaiian sauce, if you can’t tell.
As it turned out, these were the big hit of the evening:
And, yay! It was actually my idea to call them bilgesnipe in a blanket. (There may be creative hope for the writer after all.)
This one made us all snicker:
I think you know why.
Then we had leftover naan, and that somehow became connected to Director Fury:
And one of the best moments of Lego Marvel Super Heroes? When one of the characters says, “Director Fury told me to get all these goshdarned snakes off this helicarrier!” *wipes tear of laughter from her eyes* Ah, good times.
Now, if you’ve read the latest run of hawkeye: my life as a weapon, this one will come as no surprise to you:
We needed something to go with the naan, and here’s an example of some of things comic book Hawkeye gets into:
The Hobbit loves him some Deadpool, and Deadpool loves him some tacos, so…
You know, tacos.
And then I added black beans for Black Widow (Weak. I know.)
And this idea–so totally Ryan’s–turned out to be incredible:
This, unfortunately, did not happen with the nuggets.
Finally, we rounded out the night with something All-American:
You will notice we didn’t have anything for Iron Man. Kinda hard to make Tony Stark kid appropriate, although I did think about some Pepper and Tony’s 12% of a Moment champagne to celebrate a successful family Marvel Night.
