As I was signing up for a birthday post this month I KNEW I wanted to write on Tolkien. After all we were going to watch the last Hobbit movie this Christmas, I watched all of the Lord of the Rings movies in the theaters on opening day. I’ve read the books, and then I started thinking about what I would write. And I got stuck.
Then I wrote an entire post that I’ve now deleted and rethought because TODAY we are having a Middle Earth Feast. One of our local movie theaters is showing a Middle Earth Movie Marathon. They’re starting at 7:00 am and including a 9 course meal as they watch all 6 movies. It’s going to be over 20 hours long.
We are going to copy this tomorrow, and I’ll update this with better pictures once we’ve completed the entire thing, but for now, here’s our menu (we’ve imitated a Hobbit’s meal plan for this):
Breakfast: pancakes, and we’ve got some special butters and syrups to try with it
Second breakfast: fruit and cheese because Aragorn threw an apple at the Hobbits when they suggested second breakfast
Elevensies: scrambled eggs, because Superman wanted to do eggs.
Tea: cheese, crackers, and lots of tea
Dinner: chinese pork ribs and fried rice (and I apparently have not posted this delicious recipe, I must fix this)
Supper: sandwiches (I figure this will be close to midnight and we’ll want a snack, but something simple)
