REcipe for Lembas which is AMAZING!
by frodolijahlover (frodolijahlover)

Lembas Cookies:

6 TBSP butter or margarine, slightly softened
2 cups self-rising flour (see substitute below)
2 TBSP granulated sugar
1TBSP honey
1 TBSP Orange extract
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 cup milk
4 TBSP heavy cream
Mallorn leaves

1. With a pastry blender, cut margarine into the flour in a mixing bowl until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Do this rapidly so the butter does not melt.

2. Add the sugar, 1/2 cup of almonds, 1 TBSP honey, and 1 TBSP orange extract to above mixture.

3. In a small bowl, beat the egg and milk together until mixed. Reserve 1 TBSP of this mixture to brush the tops of the lembas. Add the rest of the cream and egg mixture to the above mixture (flour) and mix just until combined into a stiff, soft dough.

4. Knead three or four times on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough to a 3/4" thickness and cut with a leaf-shaped cookie cutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet, leaving 1" of space between lembas.

5. Brush the tops of the lembas with the reserved egg-milk mixture.

6. Bake for 12 -13 minutes in a preheated 400 degree oven.

7. For safe keeping, wrap each lembas individually in a fresh, clean mallorn leaf. If these leaves are unavailable in your area, store the lembas in a tightly closed container. Makes about 30 lembas. Serve with dipping honey and heat before serving.


Substitute for 2 cups self-rising flour: use 2 cups minus
4 TBSP all-purpose flour. Add 3 TSP baking powder and 1/4 TSP salt.

LOTR the MUSICAL
by frodolijahlover (frodolijahlover)

I thought you all should know that the creative team has landed in canada and begins rehersals for LOTR the MUSICAL this week. The premire is February 2, 2006 and tickets are on sale NOW at www.lotr.com. you can also sign up to be on their email list or read a production diary by the actor who plays pippin. should actually be pretty halarious.

i'm not sure how i feel about singing and dancing gandalf and saruman, but i must say that it will certianly be interesting. i also dont know how much it will cover or stick to the books since its 3 hours. thats only an hour per book.

anway, i think it is well worth the trip to www.lotr.com in order to check out the cast (click CAST & CREATIVES and then TORONTO CAST) because some of the choices are very good.

aragorn looks perfect as does pippin and frodo and gandalf.

i find it interesting that arwen is blonde, elrond rather fat, boromir black (i actually rather like that choice), FINALLY legolas has DARK HAIR (i hope they dont ruin it with a wig) like he should,

but i hate the appearance of merry and him and pippin dont look ANYthing like eachother, in fact, sam an merry look more related,

theoden and rosie are out of a dream, and saruman actually could pull it off too,

but i find it unnerveing that there is only 3 members of ensemble, no bilbo, no faramir, no denethor, no SAURON??? no nazgul? no eowyn no galadriel no celeborn, no treebeard i dont know....could be pretty terrible, i mean, how in HELL are they going to manage oliphants, mount doom, ents, making frodo and sam dissappear, shelob, and oh, only 5 some odd huge battle scenes??

but you know, its a blessing that all of them are english, because that play with american accents would not be good, and I HOPE that pippin is still irish, because it would seem too weird for him not to be talking with an irish accent

LOTR Moment
by elvensailorgirl (elvensailorgirl)

This happened a couple of days ago, when the Sophomores in my school were taking the PSAT. I'm in French Three with 5 other girls, and we're in the back of the Sophomore French One class. Well, Spinner (one of the other girls) and I were the only people in the room, and we started talking about stuff... Anyhow, it got to LOTR somehow, I have no clue how but with me it always happens, and we had this whole conversation in 'Gollum-speak'. It was great, though I think the French instructor must have thought we were on drugs...

Not a great moment, but a moment nontheless...
