Quick links: Fish and Chips | Verdict

 

Just keep swimmin’ just keep swimmin! This week we had the privilege of watching Finding Nemo. One of the greatest Pixar movies of all time. This was only the second movie not to show any food. So we’re making some food that will make you sad after watching the movie.

Fish and Chips

So…even though fish are friends and not food, we made fish and chips. It’s all thanks to Marlin’s quote at the first of the movie when Nemo goes to school. “They’ve just got to grow up som – THE DROP OFF? THEY’RE GOING TO THE DROP OFF? WHAT ARE YOU, INSANE? WHY DON’T WE FRY THEM UP NOW AND SERVE THEM WITH CHIPS? ”
