I have this odd habit of bunching up a dinner/food theme with whatever movie we're going to enjoy for the weekend evenings.  Our past 2 sunday night dinners have been accompanied with viewing Napoleon Dynamite; our 2 1/2 yr old son loves this movie as do we.  Also, this serves 6-8 people for under 15.00!

It's not from scratch, but it works, and boy is it yummy!!!!  Brings back memories of elementary school.

99cent only store (don't be afraid to go here):
2.97 - 3 cans of Del Monte Original Sloppy Joe mix
1.98 - 2 packages of American brand Hamburger Buns
0.99 - fresh strawberries

Vons/Pavilions or your local grocery store:
3.97 - 5lb bag of Tater treats aka Tots
2.97 - 3lbs of ground beef (on sale)

Over med/high heat in a semi-deep pan, cook the ground beef until brown and drain excess fat.  Stir in 3 cans of Del Monte Original Sloppy Joe Mix.  Serve on open face buns with a side of your baked Tots (bake as many as you like), serve with homemade Southern Sweet Tea...and enjoy with family and friends. 

Desert:  sugar coated strawberries Smiley

Awesome.  My friends and I were obsessed with this movie for a long time - we tried to have a Napoleon Dynamite dinner night, but it never happened...I love tots, though.  Smiley

For HBO sunday nights we do themed dinners. Sopranos is italian usually baked ziti and salad. Six feet under is Roast Chicken, Poasted new potatoes, walnut green beans. The little one goes to bed before the show comes on.
