California is having some legit winter weather right now. I almost cancelled a wine tasting trip to Temecula because it was raining. Dumb, I know. But we don’t know how to deal with driving in anything more than a sprinkle. I ended up going (and had a blast, by the way) but the chilly weather is really making me want to stay home and snuggle up in front of the television. A Netflix marathon sounds like the perfect way to spend a cold night with the family. So I put together 20 appetizer ideas to enjoy along with your favorite shows. Appetizers as a meal is my favorite!
As part of the Netflix #StreamTeam, I share my favorite things about Netflix each month. This month I decided to share with you some delicious appetizer ideas for creating a fun family night in. Because food and Netflix are the perfect pairing.

My Netflix list is all over the place. I have sweet, rom coms like you might find on the Hallmark Channel (I’m STILL watching holiday themed movies. I can’t quit them!) but I’m also watching things like Hip Hop Evolution. Which totally came in handy for a school project for my son. The 5th graders do a “wax museum” at Open House where they get to pretend to be a historical figure and tell people about their lives. My son decided to be Joseph Simmons, founding member of Run DMC. Since I had just watched the hip hop documentary I knew there was information on how Run DMC got their start. I had my son watch it and he was able to work some of that information in to his speech. He heard a LOT of the f-word but it was a fun way to do a little research for a school project. Don’t forget to use Netflix as a resource for learning. There are so many great biographies and shows that teach.
But it’s also the perfect place to catch up on all your favorite TV shows and original shows made for Netflix!
Thank you for supporting brands, like Netflix, who allow me to talk about and share my love of TV and movies!
