How to host a Russell Madness Movie Night! #RussellMadness #RussellInsiders @FHEInsiders

Russell Madness tells the story of Russell, an undersized but big-hearted terrier who dreams of having a family of his own. After running away from his pet store, Russell gets taken in by The Ferraros, a family desperate to revive their grandfather’s pro wrestling arena. That’s when they discover their new pet pooch has incredible wrestling skills. With help from his coach, Hunk, a savvy and hilarious monkey, Russell rockets to the top of the pro wrestling world and becomes a famous sports superstar!

  Last weekend we gathered the family around  to enjoy this great family film!  Russell is scared little pup looking for his forever home, little does he know when the Ferraro family move back to Portland that not only will they help him overcome his fears, but he will help them too!

Crazy antics ensue when you mix together a talking monkey, a pooch who pees when he is frightened and the world of wrestling.  The Ferraro family only intend on staying one year to revive the wrestling arena and turn a profit and then they can move back to San Diego, then Russell enters their lives with a bang.  Russell helps the family learn that working all day and night and is not what is important, but the time spent with each other as a family.  The Ferraros along with Hunk help Russell overcome his fears and find his true calling a pro wrestling pup!  This is an adorable film the whole family will love!

  • Cut 1 to 1-1/2 lbs of lean chicken 
  • In a large skillet, sauté  chicken in oil until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. If desired, add carrots, potato, celery, or just about any vegetable you like. Discard excess oil.
  • Add 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until meat (and potato) is tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Break Golden Curry Sauce Mix  into small pieces and add to pot stirring until it is completed melted.
  • Simmer for another 5 minutes or so stirring constantly. (If sauce becomes too thick, just add water)
  • Pour over freshly cooked rice.
You may increase or decrease the amount of vegetables and meat by as much as 50% if you wish.

Perfect, any time of the day!  Sometimes you just want chocolate. Chocolate upon chocolate. And fudge. And maybe some Devil’s Food Cake. Is that wrong? No. Is that awesome? Yes.  If you are looking for your chocolate fix, this is the cake for you.  My family has now asked for these cakes for their birthdays!
