Special Delivery Date Idea

I have two really great people in my life with whom I love to share my favorite things.  I call them the Murphy Bros.

Murphy Boy Wonder
Super Murphy Boy

One of my favorite snailmail items to send them is a date idea! We all know how easy it is to get stuck in a rut when it comes to romance and busy college students don't always have the time or resources to plan unique date ideas. That's where Mrs. Murphy's Mailbox Magic comes in!  Not only do the boys get a new idea for a date, but I get the joy of sharing some of my favorite things with the next generation! (And I get to create some fun snailmail, of course.)

For this snailmail date I've decided to share another home cooked dinner and a movie date idea. What could be more fun than combining food and flicks with a cinematic-inspired cuisine!  I'm a fan of quirky, independent films and so are the Murphy Bros. They also, both love to cook! So I decided to find a recipe to go with the film Everything Is Illuminated  (Warner Independent Pictures 2005) starring Elijah Wood.

This film is a quirky story of a young Jewish-American man who travels in search of a mysterious woman in a photograph who apparently helped his grandfather escape Eastern Europe just prior to the Nazi invasion. His journey takes him to Ukraine where he meets some very strange tour guides who make some discoveries of their own.  

Since this film take place in Ukraine, I included a recipe for a simple twist on Chicken Kiev. However, I don't think Chicken Kiev is actually Ukrainian....Hmm??? Kiev IS the capital of Ukraine, so that's good enough for me!  Ha Ha. And it's, who cares!? Yummy!! Check out Pillsbury's recipe for Chicken Kiev Crescent Bake here!

 I also included some discussion questions for the film because I am a complete nerd and love that sort of thing!! I packaged it all up and sent it on it's merry way. 

I hope the Murphy Bros and their dates enjoy this special delivery date idea! I had fun creating it! 
Try sharing your favorite things with your favorite people via post! It's a fun surprise that is simply magic!
