I think we’ve all had this problem: You plan to go to a matinee performance of one of your favorite shows, but don’t know what to do about dinner after the show! Now, you could just go to a favorite restaurant, or try a new place, but why do that when you can have a perfectly themed homemade dinner? Here is my perfect post-show dinner for the whole family.
To start, we have a wonderful Julius Caesar Salad. Are you a fan of Shakespeare? Or do you, perhaps, just enjoy a good, classic salad? This recipe is perfect for a fresh, spring day. Perhaps the Ides of March?

After a wonderful show and all the emotions flying throughout the seating area, you just need a good helping of soul food. Our main course for the night is a hearty, warm chili ready to get you through every last heart-wrenching ballad and peppy tap tune. It will make everyone in your family say, “Gimme Gimme!”
Thoroughly Modern Chili
I decided that we needed something a little lighter to compliment the heartiness of the chili and so we have some Kiss Me, Kale Chips! Now be careful when you take these baked treats out of the oven or you’ll be shouting that it’s “Too Darn Hot.”

When there is nothing ado, come and enjoy these delicious blueberry muffins. They can inspire wedding vows in anyone! Everyone who tastes them will exclaim, “Get thee a wife!”
Much Ado About Muffin
Now, I know our run of Kinky Boots is done, but you will get a resounding cheer of everybody saying “YEAH!” with these yogurt and kinky fruit parfaits!
The perfect accompaniment to this delicious meal for your “Wandering Child” is some Fanta of the Opera the fizzy orange drink that will have the kids saying “Bravo, Bravo!”
For the adults in the room, Caberet Sauvignon pairs well with chili. It’s so good, you’ll think you’re in trouble and say “Don’t Tell Mama.”
