Hey Yooooou Guuuys!
Okay, confession time. Goonies is one of those movies I've been pretending to have seen for years. It's iconic to my generation and Geoff holds that it is the greatest children's movie of all time so I've been nodding along, "Oh, yeah....uh huh, yeah, it's been a while since I've watched it..." Settled in with Geoff and Veronica (another Goonies fan), I was prepared to be underwhelmed. Kids' movies so often don't hold up - but this one totally did! It's the quintessential kids' wish fulfillment movie with some rad 80s clothes and surprisingly funny jokes. Also, Josh Brolin.
If you have never watched Goonies or haven't seen it in years, check it out. And while you are at it, I recommend a dinner of grape soda and Hamburger Helper. If you prefer your dinner in non-box form, we really enjoyed Budget Bytes' Chili Cheese Beef and Mac. The sharp cheddar cheese and kick of chili powder make this a more grown up version, but elbow macaroni will forever bring out the kid in you. Or maybe the Sloth.
