"Hobbit Stew" served atop mashed po-Tay-toes
Lembas Bread (you know....the bread of the elves)
I gotta tell you....this took a lot of work. But isn't it *interesting* how most things of value do take work?
Making memories....that's what I hope it was all about. When my kids look back at some of these stories that have shaped them, and our family....maybe they will remember with a smile their crazy, pregnant mother buzzing about in the kitchen just to put the finishing touches on the Lembas bread. They have been talking about Hobbit Feast Day ever since I told them about it. And I planned so much food that it wouldn't fit in one day, and will have to carry over to tomorrow.
It is a lot of work. But it is worth it. I don't think any of us Hesters will ever think of The Lord of the Rings in quite the same way again. ;-)
And, here is this evening's movie clip:
Samwise Gamgee:....there were plenty of opportunities for those folk to turn back, but they didn't....because they were holding onto something.
Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?
Samwise: They believed that there was good in this world, and that it's worth fighting for!
For the True King! And for the Kingdom!
