The Nut Job Dinner: Soup To Nuts
The animated film The Nut Job stars Surly (Will Arnett), a squirrel on a mission to break into Maury's Nut Store to save his life and those of his friends. This may seem nutty, but we've put together an entire dinner menu inspired by the movie. Choose a couple of the featured recipes or go nuts and make them all!
