Second Breakfast


   This Friday. September 21st, Harper Collins UK is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit with a big party. They'll be transforming Fulham Palace Garden's into the shire and serving Second Breakfast along with other activities. For those of us who can't cross the pond for the party they have supplied a downloadable PDF with menus and such. I'll supply the link at the bottom of this post.
   The idea is that at 11:00 sharp, where ever you are in the world, you'll sit down to a Hobbit style second breakfast. Since breakfast was always my favorite meal when I was in the UK, this is no chore for me. Here is my menu for my second breakfast.

Blueberry Scones

Eggs (scrambled)

Beans (The UK kind with tomato sauce.)

Sausages

Cheese (A couple of different kinds.)

Tea (English Breakfast, of course.)

   That ought to be enough to make a Hobbit's mouth water. Anyway, if you want to join the party, here's the link:

We'll be celebrating the Second Breakfast during the morning break, in our school library.
