Instant Frozen Party

"What is an instant frozen party?" , you may ask. I will tell you:
- It's a party that you fix up in a couple of minutes, mostly buying some ready food from your local grocery store!
And it's quite a cheap party, and great to enjoy some Sunday-evening-fun, when all you wanna do is forget the following day will be Monday!
To host an Instant Frozen Party, you will need:
- Three or more friends willing to pay 5 bucks each (Or, if you're kind enough, pay it yourself);
- A DVD player set, with a nice movie to go (We went for Cowboy Bebop)
- A Microwave Oven
- A gas Oven
- Nintendo Wii with Mario Kart
Bonus Points: An Ice Cream Maker and a vanilla pod.
1 - Gather your friends and collect all the money;
2 - Go to the closest grocery store and buy:
a) 1 bag microwave popcorn
b) 1 bag frozen Smiles potatoes
c) 2 boxes Chicken Nuggets
d) 2 bottles (3l total) Ice Tea
e) 1 Apple Pie (Homemade would be better, but then, this wouldn't be really Instant)
f) 1 pint Vanilla Ice Cream OR 500ml light cream (if you;ll go with an ice cream maker)
g) Any alcoholic beverage, if you want and if there's any leftover money
3 - When you arrive home, leave your friends chatting in the living room and microwave the popcorn. Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven at 180C;
4 - Line a large cookie baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread your nuggets and Smiles over the paper.
5 - Put the nuggets and smiles in the oven. You popcorn should be ready for now (I'd say, this should be nearly 5 minutes since you have left your friends chatting in the living room)
6 - If you have gone to the homemade Ice cream path, this is when you should be fixing it: make my quick Philadelphia Vanilla Ice Cream. Leave the mixture in the fridge. (This step should take about 5 minutes more...)
7 - Take the popcorn out of the microwave oven, put it in a bowl and serve to your friends. Take the Ice Tea with you too. Turn on the movie.
8 - At about 30 minutes, pause, remove the nuggets and smiles from the oven and serve with ketchup, barbecue, tabasco and mustard. While your friends are chatting during the pause, grab the ice cream mixture and churn it into your ice cream maker (if you have a normal Frozen Bowl Ice cream maker, do this step at nearly 1:30 past the movie)
9 - Resume the movie and finish watching it while devouring the food.
10 - After the movie is over, grab your Apple Pie, and serve it with your Ice Cream (homemade or not). Finish the party playing Mario Kart Wii!
