And so I made it to the first stop. From the Shire to Bree which is 218km. And because I’m food motivated, I wanted to celebrate each milestone by having a special dinner that is representative of each place.
I FORGOT THAT I HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN TO THE START POINT OF THIS ADVENTURE!!!! Here is a picture of me at the actual start point… Bilbo Baggins’ house in Hobbiton.
Bree is the town where the hobbits stop in at the pub, The Prancing Pony. So I decided that a pub meal was in order. I cooked sausages and mash and washed it down with a ginger ale. I really should have had a pint of beer to be TRULY authentic but beer is gross. The sausages were a special pork and apple sausage and were so yum!
(Do mashed potatoes ever look edible in photos??)
