Parker has been a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings books for a couple years. But he never wanted to watch the movies. He figured they’d scare him.
But this weekend he finally decided he was ready. Which was a perfect excuse for us to snuggle on the couch for a while during the long weekend before I head out today for a business trip.
And by work I mean eating everything not tied down in New York City.
But while we watched the first two movies in the series, we needed to eat. So I made Parker a cream cheese and candied bacon wrap using bacon left over from a party we had this weekend.
He requested another for dinner.
And in the process… I made an extra and shoved it into today’s lunch.
At some point, he also needed a snack — because that’s what hobbits do — and I sliced up half a large apple and smeared it with peanut butter.
The other half also go peanut butter, but also got dunked in granola. Keeps it yummy and keeps it from turning brown.
