HAPPY SHARKNADO DAY!
I love campy SyFy channel movies. The shark ones are the best. Well, Lavalantula is a close second. But Sharknado? Oh. My. God. Seriously. I look forward to Shark Week, because it’s awesome and fun, but it also means SHARKNADO DAY IS COMING! And SyFy now does it for a whole WEEK! Squee! Trailer Park Shark, Toxic Shark, Sharktopus – all awesome. I’ve recorded so many of them.
I’ve passed my love of all things Sharknado onto Smash-N-Break. He is obsessed with sharks and sharknados right now. Obsessed. He asks Alexa, my Echo Dot, a bunch of questions about sharks. Where do they live? What’s the biggest one? How do you spell Sharknado? Can I keep one as a pet? Where can I see a shark? So, naturally, he wanted to celebrate Sharknado Day. Bubba, Smash-N-Break, and Littles pretend to fight Sharknados. Bubba is Fin, naturally. They know the song. They sing the song. Alexa knows which song it is, too.
How do you celebrate Sharknado Day, you ask? Well, you watch all FIVE (five – pinch me, I’m dreaming! FIVE movies now!) movies in one day. You plan a menu around sharks, sharknados, and a weapon of shark destruction. We will also try to build a shark puzzle.
First, we have Shark Attack punch. It’s pretty easy to make. Blue Hawaiian Punch, Sprite, with drops of Grenadine.
Snack wise, we have Sharknado Chips. Other people call them Bugles. Boring. Sharknado Chips is better.
We also made Shark Bait. Popcorn, Reese’s Pieces, and Vanilla chips.
Chainsaws. What would a Sharknado party be without a nod to Tara Reid’s chainsaw hand!? Red, white, and blue Twinkies (blood spatter) with a pretzel rod.
Shark Tooth Pizza. You cut pepperoni into triangles and make a pizza. I may also make this into nachos. That’s a flour tortilla cut into a triangle, baked in the oven to make it crispy. Then, top it off with sauce, cheese, and triangle pepperonis. I haven’t decided yet.
The piece-de-resistance is Blood in the Water Sharknado cupcakes. You have to find blue velvet cake mix, or make your own cake and dye it blue. Then, squirt something red into the cupcake after it’s baked. I just used frosting. Frost it like normal. Take a sugar cone, cover it in royal icing. Squish it into the cupcake. Fill the cone with frosting, and add gummy sharks. Sharknado cupcakes!
So, now, go out and enjoy the awesomeness that is Sharknado. And eat junk food, too!
Happy Sharknado Day!!!!
