Thread: What is your ideal Hobbit meal or Breakfast!?
  >>
Also what kind of a Hobbit would you be a Took or a Baggins?
I'd probably be a Took rather than a Baggins (though I've always liked the Brandybucks) since, much as I'd like to live in the Shire, the occasional trip outside would make for a refreshing change of pace.
Hurry now! It'll be time for second breakfast soon! For that we'll need cold cuts and pickles, and cold fried-chicken! With pork pie and fresh turnips, and fried potatoes and onions, too! We'll finish it with mince pie and cheese, and a few fruit tarts as well!
Damn! Too early for beer, but have it ready for elevenses! Thank you, Mr. Baggins, you are a most accommodating host!
I'm not sure I'd ever eat hobbit, but if I did, I suppose I'd have my hobbit roasted if young, and boiled if old and tough like mutton! (For breakfast it would be minced hobbit in bubble-and-squeak, I think - or would that be hobbit-and-squeak?)
NB: I thought you were a dwarf anyway - or are you hiding something? There's something Freudian in your question. You're not a troll by chance? Come on, you can be honest with me. I won't tell anyone else on this site your dark secret - honest!
Should I change my name to B'arelyn Troll ?
(Your secret is still safe with me - for a small fee...)
Wait a minute, what am I saying? Since when is a hobbit not hungry?!? *sigh* Guess I wouldn't make a very good Baggins OR Took.
Oh well, guess I'll just retire to a vegan elf
Anyhow, I'm off to take second breakfast...
Okay, I already revealed my fave Hobbit breakfast on the M.E. thread, so I'll go straight to Hobbit dinner: Main course--Roast Beef well done dripping with thick dark gravy and layered with bacon and sauteed onions and mushrooms, mashed potatoes, Shire Pudding (Yorkshire wasn't invented then , google Yorkshire pudding if you don't know what it is), Roast Potatoes, Carrots, Peas, Cauliflower (or broccoli), slabs of sweet "French" (France wasn't invented then either) baguettes with butter and Huntsman Cheese. A salad to start with Minas Tirith dressing (I'm guessing Minas Tirith is in the vicinity of modern Italy, hence Italian dressing), Clam Chowder as the second course.
To Drink with dinner: Sweet Apple Cider and Red Wine
For appetizers potato crisps (chips to Americans), carrot and celery sticks and onion dip, chunks of Sharp Cheshire cheese (or the Shire equivalent).
Dessert: Vanilla Ice Cream with chocolate swirls, strawberries, whipped cream and apple crumble pie.
Second Dessert: Chocolate Chip cookies, mince pies, jam and cream tarts.
Dessert Drink: Hot Chocolate topped with whipped cream spiked liberally with Kahlua.
Before bed: Hefty dose of Pepto Bismol
Thats quite a list btw GB , you're definately a Hobbit if I'm going by that list, Why not try a Hobbit equivalent to Horlicks before bed?
I can see Bilbo drinking Horlicks actually!
I used to be able to eat like that when I was younger *wistful*. Nowadays, if I wanted to enjoy all that, I'd have start dinner about lunch-time and take nice long breaks between courses (which is what I do at Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year).
And yes, my love of Feasting is why I am sure I have some Hobbit in me, (well that and my short...erm...stocky stature).
Oh, Baggins, definitely.
I sound very culture-ignorant but I've never known all my life what Thanks Giving is , the term just reminds me of cheesy Disney films set around Christmas, would you care to enlighten me ?
Thanksgiving is an American (and Canadian) Holiday. It's basically a harvest festival. But the American version has a Mythology based on a supposed gathering of Native Americans and Pilgrims in harmony to celebrate the Native Americans helping out the Pilgrims after a bad harvest. Great Holiday, nice ideals--but the History of Colonial/Native relations is quite a bit different (and that's all I'm saying about that).
In any case, the Holiday includes Feasting, Merriment, Giving Thanks for bountiful harvests and good neighbors (hence the name). The basic concept is very Hobbity.
Btw I think that Hobbits would stick their noses up at Rooibos Tea, what sorts of cheeses do you think hobbits like? My favourite has to be Bree and Camembert, although Danish Blue and English Stilton are great aswell.
Got this off a web site;

Perhaps your mum will help you make some Henry- let us know how they taste if you do- I for one have never tried them before.
More seriously this could cause problems for TH film- there is a fair bit of smoking in it.
p.s whilst on this subject can any one tell me what 'grits' are- some sort of American breakfast I believe, but not a very appealing name I've always thought for a foodstuff- what is it?
I'm sure you'll get an answer but, if not, You will find it in the film 'My cousin Vinny' !
Certainly not something a hobbit would eat ! Especially not a Scots one !!
Gandalfs Beard, if that's the sort of thing you serve at home i'd be surprised if you ever left the table ! mmmmmhmmm.
I would consider myself a Hobbit (though I'm MUCH too tall to be one...) simply because i eat eleventies and second breakfasts ALL THE TIME! Though, unlike Pippin, I'm more likely to grow upwards, not sideways
It's probably because I drink way too many fluids. So many fluids.
I'm quite slim though as I exercise a lot ! Football (soccer) and running (after my children mostly ) have kept me the same weight since I was 16 !!!
A loooong time ago!
I agree with Tinuviel.. Young Henry, A good brekky is the best start to a day !!
(I hope Henry is listenning too. Don't want him learning bad habits! )
[i:b1b2yty9]"Every morning and every night,
I pack my tum so very tight,
I eat until I nearly burst,
That's how I cope with life's foul worst!" [/i:b1b2yty9]
That's what I always sing at night to cheer me through the sleepless hours (or will from now on ). We're simple folk where I come from. Food cures every ill in Rushock Bog.
I'm not even quite sure.
As of late, my sleeping schedule has been... non-existant. I've been sleeping in the afternoons, sleeping at any real time I see fit. Sometimes I stay up for the lengths of about twenty-eight hours without seeing anything wrong with it.
My work is both a blessing and a curse.
Well my "work" is being a code monkey.
Not to mention helping a friend out with a... er.. "server".
Definition: [i:1wc7o7ld]The term code monkey generally refers to a computer programmer or other person who writes computer code for a living. More specifically, it refers to a person only capable of grinding out code, but unable to perform the more intellectually complex tasks of software architecture, analysis, and design. The term is thus considered mildly insulting, and is often applied to the most junior people on a programming team. "Code Monkeys" are considered to lack intellectual capability in seeing the 'Big Picture' and are often myopic when it comes to business sense. They are typically characterized to be content with their insignificant status and are often depicted to be bad with women, lacking basic social skills.
While some of that is true, and some of it false, you can use that definition if you would like.
Anyway, does your Code Monkeyhood cause your peculiar sleep-eat habits, and perhaps be a bit of a catalyst for all this Spiritual-struggling you appear to be doing? (I am a Hobbit from Australia, Durin. Tell me to f#*k off if you feel I'm dragging your dirty (spiritual?) linen out into the public and don't like it! Telling me to f#*k off won't stop me doing such [i:1044hy4b]dragging[/i:1044hy4b], but it will certainly add a bit of drama to this Forum! As you'll probably guess, I will always place Entertainment before anyone's Mental (or Spiritual) Health! )
