In our home, we watch a lot of movies over the holiday season. We tend to have a revolving door of visitors and our favorite activity is to spend time watching everyone’s favorite movie. We started November out with a Friendsgiving Movie Night and invited a few of our friends — Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore .
“Could you spare a small smackerel?”
There really is nothing better than having friends over to watch a favorite movie. We have piles of blankets and pillows, light a fire in the fireplace, and hit play. Everyone finds a spot, grabs a pillow and blanket and cuddles up and to watch the evening’s DVD selection.
'But don't bother about the bread, please.'
Christopher Robin was the movie choice this week because we didn’t have an opportunity to see it in the movie theater. We invited my daughters bestie and her brother over and they all a stuffed character from Pooh and his friends to have a cuddle with whilst watching Christoper Robin.
“I’m so rumbly in my tumbly.”
I always like to have snacks available for everyone and I wanted to have a bit of honey with everything, since, you know, Pooh love honey so much. I made a Cluster of Nuts Snack Bites for everyone and they are loaded with honey. I had honey biscuits, honey cookies, honey marshmallows, mini cupcakes and a cinnamon honey cake. Obviously chocolate and lemonade are a must for all the Christopher Robin fans, but the essential ingredient for any Friendsgiving Movie Night with Christopher Robin is honey!
We had a bit of a small tea party with all our friends, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger was hiding in the honey pot! Once we had our fill of honey, we grabbed a stuffed pal and headed to watch Christopher Robin. Christopher Robin is out on Digital & DVD Nov 6.
"Nearly eleven o'clock," said Pooh happily. "You're just in time for a little smackerel of something."
Here is the amazingly delicious Cluster of Nuts Snack Bites recipe I created for everyone that is perfect for our Friendsgiving Movie Night to watch Christopher Robin on DVD. These are really perfect for movie night entertaining! Christopher Robin certainly knows how to bring friends togehter!
"When you go after honey with a balloon, the great thing is not to let the bees know you're coming."
Cluster of Nuts Snack Bites
2 Cups Almonds
1/2 Cup Sunflower Seeds (I used chocolate covered sunflower seeds)
1 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
4 Tablespoons Honey
2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Mix the nuts and seeds in a large bowl, sprinkle with the cinnamon and ginger.
Pour the honey over the mixture and stir gently until all the mixture is fully coated.
Spread the mixture on the sheet pan in a single layer and bake for approxiamtely 15-20 minutes. The mixture will looky gooey and sticky.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest for approximately an hour until the nuts and honey mixture is hardened. Break up into pieces and enjoy!
“I wasn’t going to eat it, I was just going to taste it.”
On Nov. 6, Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the wondrous, live-action film in which Winnie the Pooh and friends venture into mid-century London to help grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor), arrives instantly on Digital and Movies Anywhere and on Blu-ray™ and DVD with captivating, behind-the-scenes extras. The fun-filled tale features A.A. Milne’s timeless characters from the Hundred Acre Wood — Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl — making their first appearance as three-dimensional characters who remind Christopher Robin, and viewers of all ages, to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.
This entirely new take on the Winnie the Pooh stories will transport parents back to the imaginative, carefree days of childhood and allow them to share their love of Pooh and friends with their own children. “When you are able to make people laugh and cry in the same movie and you are able to tell the story with integrity and ground it in reality and have the magic realism on top of it, it lifts your spirits and connects you with the people you love,” says director Marc Forster. “We could all use a little bit of Pooh’s heart and wisdom right now.”
