What have you been eating for Hobbit day? Can't Post

I tried one of those Middle-Earth recipes, fried boiled eggs, and some brown sausages with a pint of Chech beer Staropramen. Smile And you?

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.

Now that's thoroughly Hobbitish! Yum! But [In reply to] Can't Post

what exactly is a butter tart, Precious? Is if flaky? Is it crumbly?

Opened the fridge this morning and found NO eggs! My husband got to them first. [In reply to] Can't Post

Had to resort to tea and toast, cheese and fruit, and half a Pop-Tart left in the box. Tongue

Hobbit Day Hobbit Supper [In reply to] Can't Post

Baked Hobbit. It's just like Cornish Hen, but with big feet and they don't lay eggs so are good only for the meat. It's a fair bit of work to trim away all the fat but some people like it to remain - like pork chops with apple sauce.

Great question, Morok C!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've already had a small omelet with mushrooms, tomatoes, sausage, onions, and fried taters. I'm going to make Pigeon Pie by Bombur from the official Hobbit Movie site, but I'm substituting pigeon with chicken and making the crust from scratch. However, I'm also drooling over Middle-earth Recipes by Primula & MithrandirCQ. You want to have fun... lose yourself in there!

Sadly, no tea, thank you. ;) I'm not a tea drinker.

I have a list of the food consumed in both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, if you care to have a peek ;) If anyone has discovered other eats, please share!!!

Taters, Precious! [In reply to] Can't Post

...actually, I had a bagel. :( I wanted one even though it's not very Middle-Earth-y.

I did have potato chips later so the subject line is sort of true...

So far, just a toasted bagel with butter and tea [In reply to] Can't Post

simple, yet delicious Smile

but I hear there will be lots o' food at a Hobbit Day party I'm going to later today


..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

nothing particularly hobbity [In reply to] Can't Post

English muffin (although none of my friends who have visited from England could figure out what this was when asked, by the waitress, to define what kind of muffin they wanted at breakfast) - peanut butter and jam.

lunch is hamburger (left from last night's grilling) and, very quickly, a second helping of last night's birthday carrot cake. Not for Bilbo or Frodo's birthday but my Mr Elf-man's birthday yesterday. :-)

Carrot cake could be kind of Hobbity, don't you think?

Well, probably [In reply to] Can't Post

Although they are particularly fond of mushrooms. Smile Speaking of which, my dad brought home several cases with a variety of fresh mushrooms that he picked in the forest.
