It’s 4 days till Friday, it’s time to get prepared.
Family night can get complicated beyond what to flavor the popcorn with. Can you relate? I asked you — my readers what are your favorite family friendly films and BOOM, I got great responses. Obviously, use parental caution and common sense as you know what your kids can handle in terms of movies and adults themes like funerals and death like we saw last night when we watched Fried Green Tomatoes. Reid and I have enjoyed making family night special with popcorn and nacho seasoning. I included the recipe below.

For family night:
This Nacho Cheese Seasoning is perfect for popcorn, chips, and french fries! Or anything you want to sprinkle it on. It’s also vegan because I used nutritional yeast to give it a cheesy flavor.
NACHO CHEESE SEASONING INGREDIENTS
½ tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 ½ teaspoon of chili pepper powder (use more if you like it extra spicy)
1 teaspoon of onion powder
½ teaspoon of cumin powder
½ teaspoon of sea salt
½ teaspoon of smoked paprika
Mix together, add on top of popcorn and drizzle with avocado oil.
We also love The Absent Minded Professor (the old one), Son of Flubber, the Andy Griffith Show, The Music Man, Apple Dumpling Gang. There are a lot of funny and clean and not scary family movies from the 50s-70s that our family loves. We just always try to screen them first online at Common Sense Media, PluggedIn, or ScreenIt.
