Disney Junior Canada to Premiere "Tangled" This Month!

Watch the Tangled Movie Premiere on Disney Junior Canada!
Saturday May 18th, 2013 at 6:00pm ET
May is a great month with lots of fun in store, especially now that the weather has gotten warmer!  There's a great surprise that we've planned for my mom on Mother's Day, which I'll tell you about a little later.  Similarly, my dad has a special Mother's Day planned for my mom, sister-in-law and I!  I'm really excited about it!  My family is really looking forward to the Victoria Day long weekend, and we may drive to the beach for sun, fun, a picnic, and of course wading up to our ankles (it's Lake Ontario, so no swimming yet)!

TANGLED (Premiere) Sat May 18 @ 6:00 pm ET - As a Disney Junior Mom, I'm really excited about the Disney Junior Canada programming for May!  I'm especially excited about the Disney Tangled Movie Premiere on Saturday May 18th, 2013 at 6:00pm ET!  It's a wonderful film about innocence, trust, independence, friendship and love.
Tangled is a story about Rapunzel, a beautiful girl with long, magical hair.  She has been locked away in a high tower by Mother Gothel (not her real mother), under the guise of protecting Rapunzel.  When Flynn Rider enters the fortress one day, Rapunzel's world is about to change forever--and she will learn many new truths.  One of these truths is about whom to trust, and the reality that Mother Gothel is not whom she states she is.  Watch Tangled on Disney Junior  Canada with your little ones for a GREAT family movie night!
See Our Tangled Rapunzel Hair Recipe, Below!
In honour of the Tangled Movie Premiere, my family created this "Tangled Rapunzel Hair Pasta Salad", a healthy, tasty meal to serve the kids during this awesome Disney film presentation!  I love that it's easy to make and loaded with delicious veggies!

Tangled Rapunzel Hair Pasta Salad Recipe!

4 cups rotini pasta (cooked to firm and drained)
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 peppers sliced (red, orange, yellow & orange)
2 cups whole grape tomatoes (or cherry tomatoes)
1 white onion (chopped)
1 cup feta cheese (crumbled)

1.Cook rotini pasta until firm.  Drain and place inside a large serving bowl.
2.Coat rotini fully in extra virgin olive oil.
3.Drop in sliced peppers, whole grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped white onion and crumbled feta cheese.
4.Stir well and serve this pasta salad that's suited even for a princess!

*Note: I don't add salt to this recipe, as the feta is sufficiently salty.  However, do add salt and pepper to taste, according to your preferences.
New Episodes of Sofia the First May 5 & 19th 2013!
SOFIA the FIRST New Episodes May 5 & 9 @ 11:30am ET -  Do you have a little princess or prince who loves Sofia the First?  A brand new episode aired on Disney Junior Canada this Sunday May 5th--and another new one will air on Thursday May 19th, 2013 at 11:30am ET!   

Sun May 5 2013 - The Sofia the First "The Princess Test" episode premiered on Sunday May 5th.  In this great episode, Sofia learned what it meant to be a true princess, when she was diverted with a real life "test" on her way to her school!

Sun May 19 2013 - Sofia the First "Baileywick's Day Off" episode will premiere on Sunday May 19th, 2013 at 11:30am ET!  Poor Baileywick's day-off is cramped by demands made from Sofia, James and Amber--until the royal siblings learn an important lesson in gratitude.

Manners are very important in my own family.  We teach words of gratitude to our children and ensure that they use them.  Sometimes gratitude is hard lesson to grasp for young children, but easier to understand when shown in context.  For example, my kids understand that the word "please" comes before a request, such as asking for a dessert.  And the phrase "thank you" is used when a request is satisfied--or when an item is given to the child.  For example: thank you for the cupcake, birthday gift, or compliment.
