Family shakes up dinnertime with hilarious game of ‘roulette’: ‘Leftovers done right’

This family shakes things up at dinner with a special food edition of roulette, where players choose their own meal, but they don’t know what the dish is until after they’ve made their selection. 

If you’re looking for a fun way to switch up dinnertime, TikToker and parent Bethany (@_mamma_b) has the perfect game involving the whole family. Recently, Bethany posted a video featuring her family playing a round of dinner roulette, where each person selects a meal from a series of secret options, and viewers loved the clever dinner table game. 

The clip opens with a shot of Bethany’s kids seated at the dinner table, which includes an assortment of dishes concealed under pots and pans

“That one,” Bethany’s son says, pointing to the pink pot on his right, making his choice. “What is it?” Bethany asks excitedly from behind the camera. 

Bethany’s youngest daughter lifts the pot to reveal her brother’s meal of two turkey sandwiches with a side of meatballs

Next is Bethany’s older daughter, who picks up the skillet across the table to find a cheeseburger with a side of fries. 

“Aww, I wanted that,” the younger daughter remarks. However, her disappointment is short-lived as her turn is next. She points to a floral-printed mixing bowl and is pleased to discover that turkey, stuffing, and potatoes are waiting for her underneath. “Boom, baby,” she cheers, pumping both fists before digging into her mini Thanksgiving feast. 

Once the kids have their dinners, it’s the parents’ turn to choose, starting with dad, who ends up with a cheeseburger and a side of fries, and concluding with mom, who gets a sub sandwich and Doritos

Viewers took to the comments to thank Bethany for sharing the creative dinner game, and many noted that it’s also a great way to use up leftovers

“Way to keep things interesting. Good job,” one user complimented. 

“I’ve never seen this ‘parenting hack,’ but it’s genius,” commented one TikToker

Leftovers done right,” one viewer declared. 
If you’re looking for a fun game that’s also a clever way to use up leftovers in the fridge, a round of dinner roulette is worth a try.
