"He entered behind Haldir, and found that he was in a chamber of oval shape, in the midst of which grew the trunk of the great mallorn, now tapering towards its crown, and yet making still a pillar of wide girth."
~a proper pastry, and thyme for the mushrooms...
"The food was mostly in the form of very thin cakes, made of a meal that was baked a light brown on the outside, and inside was the colour of cream."
...bacon-wrapped meatloaf ... mushroom pie ... garlic-y green beans ... marinated tomatoes ... brown-rice pilaf...
A great many thanks to all the lovely people who contributed to this, my seventeenth birthday! My especial thanks to my dearest Sister Katie who planned, prepared, and labored to make this a very special elvish, hobbitish birthday. Every moment was special, and it was a glorious party!
~*~ I'm afraid that this is only the first wave of pictures.... These are the pictures from my camera, and I have been given carte blanche of Will's pictures from the day, so I will hopefully get some of those pictures up soon, of the supper and present-opening time. This was one of the most special days ever, and I am going to be entirely extravagant about the number of pictures I am sharing ~ hope you don't mind!
