The Hobbit Hop - "Elevensies"

My Preciousssss.... Lunch.

Pin It

Join us for a delicious Middle Earth feast to celebrate the opening of the movie The Hobbit in theaters today!
Click the link or button to hop on to see what Jenn at Bento for Kidlet has come up with for "Second Breakfast," and keep hopping through the whole loop to see all the Tolkien fun!

Ham and cheese on rosemary bread,  cheddar with fruit leather,
pomegranate arils, carrot coins
Smaug: I put pomegranate arils in a square muffin cup to be like Smaug's scales, then used a bit of uncooked spaghetti noodle through some bits of cheese cut to be an arrow and fletching. To represent the arrow that hit Smaug in his missing scale.
The carrot coins are to represent Smaug's treasure. Like gold coins.

Tricksy Hobbitses: A small foot cutter on some cheddar to make hobbit feet (I flipped one cheese over to make the feet face different ways.) I used the hair cutter from a faces cutter set on some dye-free fruit roll-up to make little thatches of hair for their hairy feet!

We Eats It, My Precioussss: I used the faces cutter to make Gollum and Bilbo out of ham and cheese and fruit roll-up. I snapped the guard and end off of a blue sword pick for Sting (Bilbo's sword - it glows blue in the presence of orcs.) And finally a ring pick for the One Ring.

I tried cutting the eyes and mouth separately on Gollum, and I ended up almost crumbling the whole thing. Darnit. I thought a smiley face wouldn't look right. But I caught some flak for it from a certain little preschooler, who kept harping on and on about how he wasn't smiling and why isn't he smiling Mama, and why didn't you make him smile? Bleah.
