Make it a movie night with this Easy Jambalaya and more family fun tips for watching The Princess and the Frog.

We love having a family movie night. One of our favorites to watch is Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. As adults, we love it for the Cajun food. The kids love it for the humor sprinkled throughout. 

Mark spent 2 years in the southern states, enjoying all the food they have to offer. From the delicious – Jambalaya, Gumbo, Hush Puppies, and Beignets – to the odder – Squirrels and Frog Legs – he’s tried it all. I refuse to make the latter ones, but the rest I enjoy almost as much as him, and so do the kids. Enjoy this recipe for an easy jambalaya that’s not too spicy for kids.

Movies and good food I feel go hand in hand, but I don’t always want to cook up a whole feast. So while I have made beignets before – grab the recipe here – but for our most recent movie I picked them up from our favorite Cajun Cafe – MudBugs. Along with their amazing beignets, I’ve never had a better Hush Puppy than the ones they make. Plus their sauce is just mouthwatering. 

The best beignets and hush puppies ever.

Now that we’ve got the food covered, there are a lot of other really fun things you can do for your Princess and the Frog movie night.
