Yesterday was a special day around here.... Not only was it the first day of the beautiful season of AUTUMN! but, it was also Hobbit Day. We don't always have a feast on Hobbit day, but this year, I wanted to make things a little special. I wrapped my mind around what we needed... Nothing super special, but we wanted to make our table look grand and full like Bilbo's. If only my larder looked as grand... swoon.
So I just planned on roast chicken and drumsticks, po-tay-toes (boil em, mash em, stick em in a stew)(what's taters, precious?), apples, cheese, sourdough bread, broccoli, carrots, apple fritters, and hot tea.
We read a lot yesterday. Mainly from "The Hobbit" but we finished our other lessons also.
I printed out a few quotes that made the table look extra festive.
And last night we had a wonderful meal and watched "The Hobbit"
Nothing too extravagant, but memorable and fun, and worth the little bit of effort to put it together.
