To celebrate the release of The Avengers, my husband and I decided to host a Marvel movie marathon all day Saturday before going to see the movie on Sunday. Above you can see one of our beloved godchildren is well dressed for the occasion while his brother is taking the opportunity to photo bomb him in a hat. Because one needs to be well-fed to have the stamina for five movies and because I am, well I am me, I decided to make theme menu to provide three meals for our intensive movie watching.
The movies were ready upon their comic book altar. Now time to feed seven of our closest friends breakfast. I readied a coffee and tea bar. I am obsessed with coffee syrups and teas. It’s a lot cheaper than paying for your hazelnut latte at Starbucks.
Tying breakfast foods into Marvel movies is not the easiest. Especially when you want something that holds up well for a crowd. Here’s what I came up with:
It was a hearty start to get us ready for Iron Man. After watching Iron Man & The Incredible Hulk, it was time for a green-themed lunch. A little something I like to call: Hulk’s Smashing Crudite.
Then it was time for a break to visit Monarch Cards & Comics for Free Comic Book Day.

Look at that boy’s lung function. So darn proud of him. I’m surprised he let’s me bake for him after this incident. He’s a forgiving soul.
Between Thor and Captain America it was time for an All-American supper.
