An Unexpected Dinner

The other day as I was checking the Redbox website to see when The Hobbit would be available for rental, I was pleasantly surprised to see it in stock at several nearby locations. I thought about picking it up on my bike ride home, but later I got busy with other things and forgot about it. When I got home that evening, Stephanie said she was finishing up dinner and forbade me from entering (or looking into) the kitchen. It turns out she had a surprise waiting!

She had serendipitously prepared a Hobbit- (and Lord of the Rings-) themed dinner, and rented the DVD for our viewing pleasure after putting the kids down (we don't have a dollar theater in Bloomington and we are far too cheap to watch anything at full price these days)!

Lots of little yummy bites pulled from the text of the Hobbit. She had Keebler elves fill in for Elrond et al since authentic elves are in short supply. :)

Ok, the potatoes quote is adapted from the Two Towers, but it's one that we use a lot around the house.

Perhaps not quite as filling as real lembas bread, but surely more delicious!

Thanks Stephanie for a fun and Unexpected Dinner!
