Special Dinner: December 2012

December 19, 2012 § 2 Comments

This year, Mr. E is doing a round of dinners based on The Lord of the Rings. (A short recap of the “project” can be found in the beginning of the Special Dinner: January 2012 post.)

The last dinner of the year celebrated the return of the four Hobbits into the Shire. We had a boiled chicken dinner modeled on the Maine boiled dinners: a whole chicken plus cabbage, carrots, and potato, all coarsely chopped, boiled tender in a pot. As dessert we enjoyed an apple tart. Sweet hard cider went very nicely both with the dinner and dessert.

The setting was very simple, and we ate in candlelight.
