It is #Movienightfriday and this Friday is 101 Dalmatians. Cruella came out a few months ago and we are trying again with the little one. As y’all know, we don’t do things simply in this house We also don’t just choose one film to watch. As you can see below. There are several 101 Dalmatian films, both animated and live action.
Now, you make be looking for a spot filled menu, but that is where we differentiate here. I love using the geographical location of the film to great menus that level up the lessons in the films. 101 Dalmatians is set in Britain. More specifically begins and ends in London, England but does take most of the film traveling the countryside of England.
This is not the only franchise by Disney set in England. Disney’s Peter Pan, Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World, Mary Poppins, Sword in the Stone, Winnie the Pooh franchise, Alice in Wonderland and Robin Hood are all set in Britain during different time periods. So you can absolutely refuse these recipes for those films as well.
Matthew and I went to do volunteer work at our local animal shelter. There were no Dalmatians and no kid friendly dogs at this time (more often than not because they get adopted quickly). But we do play with the cats.
We did a compare and contrast of animated to the live action and ate our traditional British foods. We also got a British Snack Box on amazon, which was one of our favorites.
We also made Cruella Frappuccinos as our drink/dessert.

Easy White Chocolate Raspberry Scones – Fluxing Well
“What is slightly crispy on the outside, yet light, moist and buttery on the inside? A freshly baked scone! I enjoy making many types of scones, always with an easy basic scone recipe as my starting point. For some reason, white chocolate raspberry scones stuck a chord with me the other day. I went home, checked the pantry, and discovered a bag of white chocolate chips. Looking in the freezer, I found a bag of dried raspberries. I was in business! The result was a lovely, buttery creation which I call easy white chocolate raspberry scones. Here’s the recipe, with some ideas for variations.” – Lisa
