HOBBIT’S VEGETABLE & BEEF PIE

WARNING: Nerdy-ness is on full display in this post. If you’re not a LOTR fan, feel free to glaze over this and make the recipe as any non-movie affiliated meal.

Okay, now I’m free to be me.

We saw The Hobbit last night. Yes, it was saturday at 7:45pm, so I think this may mark a coming of age moment when I’m too old and crotchety to see a movie at a midnight showing. We’re the couple who took a selfie of themselves in the theatre. I really wanted to and Dave really didn’t want to be “one of those.” But, he indulged me. And now we have it to cherish forever.

My brief movie review. With no spoilers. I loved it! But, I am not a tough critic. I just kind of like Lord of the Rings stuff and stories, so I wasn’t watching this grading on plot development and cinematography. I loved falling in love with Bilbo, who is way more likable in these than I ever found him in the original trilogy. I can’t wait to see what happens. Because I’ve never read the books. (That means no spoilers in the comments, please!!)

I like to think that although we didn’t see it at midnight, we still did it up big. (I mean, we dressed as Legolas & Gimli for Halloween.) So after meddling through Farmer Maggot’s crop, we feasted on a “traditional” Hobbit meal.
