Welcome to the last section of our "Spring in Ithilien" Edition of the Tolkienia Times.
In this Section, bring your appetite, check out some prime housing and prepare to have some fun!



Recipes inspired by Ithilien— the perfect chance to use your little box of salt
-by simplyaven

One couldn't walk through Ithilien, even at times of war and despair, and not recall that "a wealth of sweet-smelling herbs and shrubs" and a vast array of tree species grew there, for their sweet aroma filled up the air in spring. A mind tempted by culinary would always find this sweetness inspiring and would come up with a meal or two to share with a good friend.

Here is what the sweet-smelling herbs of Ithilien inspired in us.




Young potatoes with herbs
2 lbs young potatoes
vegetable oil or olive oil
SALT
sage (preferably fresh, but can be dried too)
thyme (also preferably fresh--can be found in the fields blooming from spring till late summer)
fresh garlic
fresh onion

Slice the young potatoes in halves or in three parts each. Don't make the chunks too thin. Heat the oil in a deeper frying pan or preferably casserole with a lid. Cut the young garlic and onion (at least two of each) into small pieces, salt them and add them to the oil. Let them soften and release their aroma. Add the potatoes. Cover with the lid.* Stir regularly so they fry equally well on all sides. When halfway ready (soft, but not orange yet), add the thyme and sage and cover. Do not stir from then on, because the potatoes will mash and you want them whole and orange-y.

You can prepare young lamb cutlets exactly the same way .

*If you use a frying pan, just stir regularly and don't cover. It is much better, though, to have a lid, as the aroma of the herbs will be fully absorbed by the potatoes.



Zucchini with yogurt sauce
3-4 zucchini
SALT
flour (half a cup)
vegetable oil enough for frying
1 yogurt (it's 700 g here but anything from 500 g up will do)
3-4-5 stems young garlic (the more, the better. Up to 10 is fine)

Peel the zucchini and slice them into circles about half an inch thick. Salt them and set them away for their water to drain. It will take about an hour. After that sprinkle the flour on a clean surface and roll each circle of zucchini in it. Heat the oil and fry the floury zucchini circles. Don't put a lid on, and keep the temperature high. The zucchini are ready when they turn golden. Don't overcook them. When all the zucchini are fried, stir the yogurt very well, add the chopped fresh garlic and 1 teaspoon of salt (for a 700 g yogurt). Put the zucchini in a big plate so that they don't make more than two levels and pour the yogurt sauce on top of them. Serve immediately.





'The Homing Gnome' Realty Estate. "Your #1 Tolkienia Property Advisor"


This month we are pleased to advertise three special houses for sale in Tolkienia, as well as one house up for auction. Have a look at our adverts and map below if you are interested in moving into Tolkienia. For exceptional service, please call 1379-9999

House 1



Address: Faramir House
Previous Owner/s: Ecthelion and Morwen Riverdale
Price: 9 Gold Rings

Description:
The attention to detail and finish that has been lavished on this 14 bedroom house by the current owners is there for anyone to see. It is quite simply the best house I have ever encountered in Tolkienia ... ever! Not only does it have marble floors with underfloor heating and a massive loft room, it even has a double garage and office space in the back garden - perfect for those looking to work from home. It features a three piece suite comprising walk in shower cubicle, hand wash basin, WC, tiled floor and splashbacks, double glazed window to side and heated towel rail. Pearls and diamonds and pale crystals are strewn upon the lawn and scattered in the grass; marvelous are the gardens of Faramir House. A real piece of Valinor for half the price!

Famous neighbour: Mayor Ethel (She asks that the new owners still host afternoon tea every second Thursday at 4:00 P.M.)

House 2


Address: 7 Buckleberry Heath
Previous Owner/s: Undisclosed
Price: 1 chest of treasure and an Oliphaunt

Description: Get on the ladder ... a three bedroom mid-terrace house offered with no onward chain. The property offers potential to make it your own, and with a good size garden this is a great first time buy. No onward chain as owner is looking to take up travelling on Oliphaunt. This would be a perfect house for new residents into Tolkienia. Friendly neighbourhood.

Famous neighbour: grammaboodawg (Roofing issues? She's the person to contact!)

House 3


Address: 10 Crickhollow
Previous Owner/s: Ms. Berúthiel
Price: 1 black cat and Tarannon Falastur's head

Description: Great location near South Baranduin. Very convenient location for travelling in and out of the city. The apartment has a definite odor that we tried to clear by opening the windows. Nice shower in bathroom, and bed is comfortable. Will need some love and considerable work done to property.

Famous neighbour: Mr. R. Brown (You'll have access to free bunny rides all year round!)


If you would like to purchase any of these houses please respond below, with the subject title: "I WANT THAT HOUSE!".


And we are most excited to advertise our auction house (House 4).

How the auction will work:

The house will be sold via a silent auction. If you would like to bid for the house, send a PM to DanielLB detailing your bid. The most enticing bid will win the house, along with a copy of the deed. The highest monetary bid might not necessarily win, so be imaginative and have fun (Bribes also accepted). Only one bid per user. Bidding will finish 3 days after this thread has been posted, and the new owner will be contacted swiftly. Decisions are final.


Address: 27 Buckland Gate
Previous Owner/s: Mr. Baggins
Price: ???

Description: This beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath, underground 2000 square-foot house is located on and under one and a half acres down a quiet country road, with a surrounding front and back yard, including a back deck perfect for BBQs and a nice garden in front ("No admittance except on party business" sign included). This cozy home is complete with a wood fireplace in the living room, and a 8' X 6' window facing the green hillside. It has acres of open land, as well as a woodstove in the family dining room. All bedrooms are good-sized, and the master bedroom includes a private bath. The kitchen is complete with new granite countertops and elegant oak cabinets, as well as a brand new top-of-the-line stove and oven. A perfect house for recovering from any unexpected adventures.

Famous neighbour: Dame Ioreth (Perfect neighbour for singing The "Tolkienia Choo Choo" with!)

*Auction begins with bids *higher* than an old button and rusty sword. Happy bidding!*


**NERDSNORTS **
by gramma

"Last night I dreamt that I was hanging out with hobbits, dwarves and wizards. After waking, I realized I was just Tolkien in my sleep."

A Dwarf walks into a bar, and the barkeeper says, "Sorry. We don't serve miners here, so toss off."
