FUNTASTIC FRIDAY


at THE REALM!

How was your week?


Are you ready for a
Funtastic Friday Night?

 

 

 

 

 


I've been pretty busy this week and I'm ready for some fun! 

It's my turn to plan our family fun night. 

I've decided to celebrate the magical world of Tolkien.

I've got a lot of fun stuff planned!

Ooooh Funtastic Friday!



Let's begin with the menu!

 

"If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world." — J.R.R. Tolkien

 


Our "Second Breakfast" will include:


Elven Lembas Bread

"Lembas bread.
One small bite will fill
the stomach of a grown man."
2 ½ cups of flour (I use all purpose flour)
1 tablespoon of baking powder
¼ teaspoon of salt
½ cup of butter
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon honey
2/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
½ teaspoon of vanilla

Merry: How many did you eat?
Pippin
: Four.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and mix well till fine granules (easiest way is with an electric mixer). Then add the sugar and cinnamon, and mix them thoroughly.  Finally add the cream, honey, and vanilla and stir until a nice, thick dough forms.


Roll the dough out about 1/2 in thickness. Cut out 3-inch squares and transfer the dough to a cookie sheet.Criss-cross each square from corner-to-corner with a knife, lightly (not cutting through the dough).   Bake for about 12 minutes or more (depending on the thickness of the bread) until it is set and lightly golden.


Let cool completely before eating, this bread tastes better room temperature and dry. Also for more flavor you can add more cinnamon or other spices.



Bilbo's Orange Marmalade

Worth the effort to make from scratch!
Wash, dry, and peel 2 pounds of smooth, unblemished oranges Cover the peel with cold water and simmer for 2 hours, until it is tender. Slice the oranges very thin and mix with 2 pounds of sugar Drain the peel, cool, and scrape out the white pith. Slice the peel very thin. Combine the oranges and peel, and stir well. Simmer over a low heat until thick. Pour into hot, sterilized jars and cover.

You'll never think of oatmeal as boring again!
Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
Sliced Almonds
Chopped Pecans
Raisins
Dried Cranberries
Chopped Apples
Brown sugar (or real maple syrup)
Cinnamon
Whipped cream
Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips


Stovetop: Cook a batch (appropriate to your family's size) of oats according to package. Make it as thick as you want. Add as much or as little of all the above ingredients to suit your taste.

Stir well, top generously with whipped cream and a dash more of cinnamon.

Microwave: Dump a scoop of oats into your bowl - at least a cup. Shake in a little salt. Add as many of the above listed goodies to your oats as you prefer. Fill the bowl with water just a little over the oats. Microwave about a minute-and-a-half. Stir well.

Top generously with whipped cream and a decorative dash of the cinnamon.

 Now, Let's Build A Hobbit Hole!

I found these cool fort building kits on clearance at Sears a few years back.

They are made by Cranium. I got one of each-- Super Fort and Mega Fort.

We've built everything from space ships and wagon trains to pirate ships and castles!

Tonight, we'll use them to build a "Hobbit Hole" in the living room.
