Middle Earth Madness VII

IMG_3953

A couple of our close friends started a fun tradition six years ago called ‘Middle Earth Madness.’ Every year they invite friends over to their home and watch the extended versions of all three Lord of the Rings films. It’s not just a sit and watch movies type of event, the whole day also is sprinkled with themed food and treats such as Second Breakfast, Baked Bree, and You Shall Not Pizza, to name just a few. This year was the seventh time they have hosted this event, but only my fourth time attending as I met them in 2011. Shortly after James introduced me to his college friends this fun duo invited me to their then fourth annual ‘Middle Earth Madness,’ and I haven’t missed one since.  To add to the fun of the day a few guests bring their own themed treats, so of course James and I have eagerly taken up that opportunity to have fun creating our contributions. Unfortunately, in 2012 I had oral surgery the day before the event so we were unable to bring a treat (but I still went, puffy faced and all). Here are the three treats we have created in the past. We’re already brewing up new ideas for the upcoming years.

As a fan of the LotR trilogy, and all things ‘nerd,’ I quickly embraced the tradition and look forward to it each year. Can’t wait to see what we come up with each year.
