Last Tuesday (February 11th), Disney re-released The Jungle Book, and so we headed out to Walmart to grab a copy! Carter didn’t know what we were getting, but on the way in he noticed and pointed out the movie poster. He got really excited when I told him that’s what we were there to buy!

We got the Blu-Ray Combo Pack/Diamond Edition, which included a DVD, Blu-Ray disc, digital download, and a free lunchbox (available exclusively at Walmart)!

Next stop was Walmart’s produce section to get all the delicious fruits and vegetables we would need for our #JungleFresh meal. Then we headed home for a night of fun, food, and monkeys!

We let the kids get all their jungle animals out to enhance the jungle ambiance. Clearly our definition of “jungle animal” extends to sharks and transforming dinosaurs.

We opted for an “authentic” jungle experience, so we let our weeds grow for a few weeks ahead of time (no really, I promise we would have pulled them otherwise…), and my husband set up a white sheet and our projector, so we could watch outside in our backyard, ahem, jungle!

The night was yet young, so we enjoyed our #JungleFresh “Bagheera Bowls” (scroll down for the recipe), while we waited for the sun to dip below the horizon.

Of course we had to enjoy some King Louie’s Lemonade too!

Before long, we were enjoying watching Mowgli and all of his animal friends. I’m not sure if I’ve ever even seen the whole movie, but it is so cute. Vanessa loved every second, calling out the names of all the animals. It has one of the best endings to a Disney movie, in my opinion!

Great (& healthy) food, great movie, great company… great night! What more could we have asked for?!

And now for our #JungleFresh recipe, Bagheera Bowls! Here’s the secret, short version: they are Hawaiian haystacks in a bowl! And here’s the full version…

Bagheera Bowls: a #JungleFresh treat!

2 cans cream of chicken soup

feta cheese

Instructions:

1. Follow instructions on your rice package to boil rice on the stove.

2. While the water for the rice is boiling, take that time to prepare all of your toppings. Most will need to be cut up, some may be in packaging, and I had to warm up our peas on the stove.

3. Combine the gravy ingredients in a saucepan and heat to boiling. Reduce heat and let it simmer.

4. Heat up frozen fajita chicken in the microwave (follow instructions on the package), and then toss the warmed-up chicken into the gravy and mix it in.

5. Fill your bowl with rice and the chicken/gravy mixture, and then add any toppings you like!

This recipe is a keeper for sure; we couldn’t help but go back for more…and more! The mixture of all the ingredients, including hot and cold, crunchy and soft, is what makes this meal great. In my opinion, it’s the gravy, pineapple, feta cheese, and chow mein noodles that kept me filling my bowl back up! The cool thing about this meal is that it’s totally customizable!

What would you put in your Bagheera Bowl?
