I'm sorry. I hope you realise that my only intention was to enrich debate on The Barrow-Downs. If I did not succeed in that because there was nothing to enrich, then please don't lynch me.

Good of you to point out that. Maybe we were digging to deep. Tolkien couldn't possibly have thoughts of everything, including the origin of every plant in the Shire. Maybe we should just be happy...

Good point, I totally forgot about that. I'll take it in consideration when I look for things hobbits might eat.

I am still searching for any food hobbits ate

So far in the 'lotr' I've found records of hobbits eating: patatoes, rabbits, herbs, mushrooms, carrots, cabigages, bread, corn, appels, honey, wine,...

Well, I gess concerning vegetarian hobbits we can only agree to disagree, cause there is no way we can find an answer to that. All we know for sure is that not all hobbits are vegetarian, because...

I believe there is at least one mentioning in the Lord of the Rings, of a hobbit eating bacon: (book one, 'A shortcut to mushrooms')
I find it hard to believe hobbits were vegetarian, but of course...

My name simply means 'small eowyn' as I often wish to be like Eowyn but know thta I am way beneath her. And I'm small too :P

I would expect some elves to eat something vegetarian now and then, so that might be a good place to look for recipes without meat. But I would find it less likely for dwarfs or hobbits to be eating...

Tolkien Tolkien was human, right?

I just have to bring this up. I don't know if its been discussed before, but I couldn't find any topic on it.

I think that on this forum and many other lotr forums, The Lord of the Rings and...

I love the sound of that lembas recipe, its really based on things tolkien said and not just a wild guess. I can't wait to try it myself.

Very good point, as Faramir accepted and loved all sides of Eowyn, marriage would not have to mean that eowyn would turn into a boring housewife. Also, Eowyn's decision to marry Faramir would make...

I think what would make a veyr interetsing debate, would be to compare eowyn's behaviour to that of a teenager. Her wildness and motives do indeed resemble that of a teenager: a desire for adventure,...

I find it only partualy believable. It is likely that, after going through such a tramatic experience AND falling hopelessly in love, Eowyn made this chang ebelieving it was best. But I do not find...

After they lost he ring, both Bilbo and Frodo aged quicker. Isn't it likely that Gollum, after having lived on the ring for over 500 years, would age very fast and die within a very short time after...

When you look at it from that perspective, the author is indeed never wrong. It is me who's fault it is that the spell is broken. But fact is, that those things broke the spell for me, and if the...

cannibalism would not have been good for survival, a race can't produce as many calaries by breeding, as it eats.
Also I doubt that hunting...

good points, I'm not saying tolkien was a racist and such, I'm just saying there are arguments for it, and they should not be overlooked as jokes.
