Dirty Dancing Movie Party with Skinny Cow!

 
It's summer and a heat wave is coming through! No, it's not the weather I'm talking about, but rather the hot attraction between Johnny and Baby. Confused? Would it help if I mentioned that it's the 25th anniversary of the ever famous movie, Dirty Dancing?! I can't believe 25 years have gone by since I this movie came out. I was 11 years old at the time it premiered at the theaters but didn't watch it until I was in my later years of high school. Any girl who watched this movie had a crush on Patrick Swayze... it was hard not to! So fast forward to tonight, I'm watching the movie again with family and friends to celebrate  the 25th anniversary of Dirty Dancing®!

To help me celebrate, I've teamed up with Slimited Editions™ Skinny Cow ice cream, thanks to the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program.

For my Dirty Dancing® party, it took me awhile to come up with a menu. The movie takes place in a resort set in the Catskill Mountains during the summer of 1963. Drawing from the characters of the movie and food of the 1960's, I came up with a menu that ties in the summer. For my Dirty Dancing® party, I served up:

Baby's Watermelon Coolers

Johnny's Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip
with Robbie's Crude-ites

Big Jake's Grilled Burgers & Chips

Penny's Stovetop Popcorn


Skinny Cow ice cream truffle bars

We all had a great time with the menu, movie and ending it all on a sweet note with Slimited Editions™ Skinny Cow ice cream. Stay tuned to the recipes of the above dishes all this week! You can have yourself a Dirty Dancing get together with friends too either at home with the DVD or check out the movie on the big screen for special showings at select cities nationwide including:
