We’ve been wanting to do a Lord of the Rings movie marathon for some time now. It just so happens that for the holidays we received a nice big TV from Ian’s family — perfect for watching movies! So we set to it and on January 2nd, we had our LOTR marathon complete with an array of Middle Earth cuisine.
