So, after quite the legal battle we are finally moved into our new place. Hurray! There is a lot of work to be done but happily we will plug away at our new hobbit hole slowly. The last few boxes of the kitchen unpacking will hopefully be tackled soon, all that remains is getting the fridge into place (we need to move some cabinets and a counter to do so, don’t worry my husband has it all planned out). I finally found the camera too! I can’t wait to get back to posting and getting some new recipes out there. I have had so many ideas. It’s going to be hard to figure out what to tackle first! I hope to start working on it all again in mid-february, unless of course the kitchen move about delays things a bit.
Of course all the stress while trying to acquire the house and moving have done a number on my waist line. After awhile when you get fed up it gets hard to say no to fast food and a monster slice of cheesecake. Especially when the stove went away for about 6 months. I didn’t gain it all back thankfully, nothing that getting back into my hobbit habits won’t fix. So then while we all wait I guess the big question is, does anyone have a hobbit recipe request? I think it would be fun to do a reader request as the first recipe in the new hobbit hole. So go on, don’t be shy. Let’s see what we can do.
First – congratulations on finally being in your own home! I’m sorry it became such a production. Second – My hobbit recipe request is something that celebrates root vegetables.
Thanks! The best part of the whole production was constantly hearing from the lawyers and realtors that situations like this never happen. A lovely first time home buying experience. We are very determined not to have to buy again for as long as we can.
Ooo root vegetables are amazing and perfect for the season. Something celebrating them would be a great idea. I will annoy people in the market shortly as I mull it over in the produce section. Which is a great place to hang out anytime of the year.
Woo! Glad to see you’re back! I’m also glad I did not cave to the compulsion to remove your RSS! Sorry about the house business. Being a grown up sometimes sucks.
How about a recipe involving some kind of marinated, grilled meats? Like a Hobbit campfire dish.
I’m glad you didn’t! You know, a grilled meat with a side of the root vegetable dish I am dreaming up would be a great hobbit dish. Hobbit campfires, hmm, food for the hobbit on the go would be a great idea too. I will have to see what I can come up with.
I can’t think of any requests at the moment, but I’m glad to hear you will be posting again soon! 🙂
I’m working on a new article – this time Viking-era foods and the people who recreate them. Do you know any people who are interested in this topic? Any referrals would be appreciated. Thanks!
Sadly I don’t know anyone that works with Viking era foods. That will be an interesting article!
