Robin Hood Movie Night

It’s #Movienightfriday and we are traveling to England for a Robin Hood filled adventure. Robin Hood is based on the book The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle, which we listened to on audible. We then mapped where the story took place in Nottingham, England, which is a real place.

We then did a comparison of the book to the movie. There is a live action movie called Robin Hood in Tights, which is a great added on comparison if you wanted to do a three way compare and contrast. We worked on Plat, antagonist, protagonist, setting, and working on the timeline of how stories are written.

We also made traditionally English dishes, especially from the time it is set. We hope you enjoy this movie night as much as we did.

“Making a hearty, filling meal can seem pretty difficult at times. We’ve all got our responsibilities to take care of throughout the day, often at the expense of not being able to cook a proper dinner at the end of the day. Good doesn’t have to mean the same thing as complicated, however.” – Joss

“This blackberry apple crisp is the perfect cosy dessert and especially good if you have gone blackberry picking yourself I think!

Plain Devon Scones – Attachment Mummy

“As we head into the warmer weather it’s the perfect time for afternoon tea, out on the law or inside.  This recipe is Steve’s Devon standard, honed over many years of baking, and the tiny hint of sweetness works well.  Serve with strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, gooseberry or plum jam and clotted cream.  Lemon, lime or passion fruit curd also work well.  To make fruit or cherry scones, just add fruit in – see the note in the recipe for quantities.” – Leta

Spiced Apple Cake – Attachment Mummy

“Having scrumped some fallen apples from an orchard last week, Tatiana was desperate to make something with them and delighted when Steve came up with this recipe.  It produces a moist cake that would work well warm as a pudding, or wrap it up, grab a flask of tea and head out an adventure.  This quantity makes two loaves, so give one away, eat two or freeze one.  Just wrap it in greaseproof paper then foil and a freezer bag.” – Leta

Stewed Fruit Recipe – Attachment Mummy

“Stewed fruit is one of those hangovers from childhood and bad school dinners: mushy, yucky over-cooked apple.  But this way of ‘stewing’ (i.e.poaching) fruit in a delicious liquor is way better than that.  You can use almost any fruit and any spices to flavour the liquid, so experiment away.  Try adding a clove or two, star anise or a piece of cinnamon, or just stick with the sweeter version below.  Our girls prefer it with no spices, just vanilla and orange to flavour.  Serve it warm as a pudding with a dollop of yogurt or good vanilla ice cream, or store in the fridge and have it over granola for breakfast.” – Leta

Mushroom, Potato & Watercress Pie – Attachment Mummy

“There’s nothing like a hearty pie when it’s cold outside and this vegan mushroom, potato and watercress combination under a comforting pastry lid will warm the cockles of the chilliest heart.  Who says vegan food is all rabbit food?!” – Leta

Sticky Ginger Puddings with Toffee Pear Sauce – Attachment Mummy

“The perfect end to any meal over the festive season, this delicious pudding is equally at home on the kitchen table or at a dinner party.  Great comfort food too!” – Leta

Classic British Pork Pie – Like Hot Keto

“The pork pie with hot water crust is a delicious English classic, and turned keto and gluten-free it just got even better. This handheld pie is traditionally eaten cold (except in Yorkshire), so it’s perfect for lunch boxes, picnics and road trips! Popularly also served in pubs, on Christmas mornings, and… on hunts.” – Pris
