Let’s Stay in and Watch Movies – Movie Night Snacks

It was going to be Valentine’s Day soon and I had no idea what I would do for Mr. B and Little B. I wanted to do something that both of them can enjoy together. I thought of planning a dinner for them but the idea seemed a little ordinary. Moreover, it was Valentine’s Day so I definitely wanted to dine out and not cook in.

I have also been wanting to ask Mr. B to watch the movie My Neighbor Totoro. Little B has seen the movie a few years back and since then, has been calling Mr. B, Totoro. Mr. B has just been revelling in this nickname without having any idea of who or what Totoro is. I realized My Neighbor Totoro’s movie night would be a perfect activity for a Valentine’s Day eve.

All I needed were some snacks.
