LotR Marathon & Feast

Finally I’ve read The Hobbit and The Fellowship and I’m currently reading The Two Towers so this is my first year doing this feast and marathon while having read at least one of the books! So proud of me! Last year I also didn’t do a feast as I went with family to go watch the 20th Anniversary theatrical editions (I know, not extended) with the live Q&A and Alamo Drafthouse did.

This year I also did three days of food! So let’s get started!

Day One:

Appetizer: Mushrooms on Toast

Sautéed Mushrooms in pan

Recipe: https://2geekswhoeat.com/tolkien-toast/

Farmer Maggot hopefully won’t have my head but I decided I wanted some tasty mushrooms to start with! This year I used a whole grain bread (not pictured) and had assistance on chopping as my finger is still stupid.

Main: Hobbit’s Stew

Recipe: http://www.sugarednerd.com/recipes-and-how-tos/2015/8/18/recipe-hobbit-stew

This recipe is really easy to use and as I’ve said before, I really love slow cooker recipes.

Other: Lembas Bread

Recipe: https://lotrscrapbook.bookloaf.net/other/recipes.html#lembas

There are a lot of recipes for this! I chose this one, and on this site alone there are two recipes for Lembas bread and so many awesome recipes in general. I tried the second recipe this year and it’s just as yummy as the first!

Dessert: Appleberry Pie

Recipe: https://spinachtiger.com/apple-berry-pie/

Another attempt at this pie! This year I used fresh green apples, blackberries, raspberries and some frozen lingonberries! My sister made a crumble to top it off with. (There was enough to have two pies!)

Day Two:

For this day and the next I used the cookbook I scored in a Barnes and Noble sale and it’s still 50% off for those curious. (I’m super excited because it has some inspired recipes from Daevabad and The Poppy War too!)

Main Dish: ‘Dad’s Fish and Chips’

(and we added peas)

Picture? Nope. We ate it all lol and I forgot to take a picture.

The frying part wasn’t as bad as I thought but only cause my family has some boss equipment I got to use lol.

Dessert: ‘My Precious Lady Fingers’

Okay so I also forgot to take pictures so you all get the picture of the two disfigured leftovers which were later ate with some coffee lol. This recipe was a lot of fun to try and surprisingly easier than I thought it would be. We also had that second pie

Day Three:

Main Dish: ‘No Man Living Am I Kebabs’

Another easy recipe that came out great, but we did add onions to ours. It would have been just as good without them but we decided to anyway since we had some laying about the kitchen. We used the broiler on our oven to grill these.

Side: Charred Broccoli Stalk Salad

I thought I got a picture but my phone tricked me again with some blurry black shadow that was supposed to be this. I really liked this, it was broccoli and broccolini (which we couldn’t get a hold of) covered in a balsamic glaze and some red pepper flakes and tossed in the oven for 15/20 min!

Dessert: Mordor Lava Cakes

On this final one, I cheated. We happened to have a box of Godiva lava cake kits so we had individual ones and we did top ours with powdered sugar so took away a little from the Mordor part but still super yummy lol.
