Hobbit Meals

What do you eat when you watch the extended versions of all three Lord of the Rings movies? The Alamo Drafthouse served up an eight-course meal during its LOTR marathon, including First Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Elevensies and Coney Stew.

When our daughter was born we joked that since babies eat every three hours, we should refer to her meals like hobbits do. After a small bit of research we found that hobbits regularly eat these seven meals:

  • First Breakfast
  • Second Breakfast
  • Elevenses
  • Luncheon
  • Tea
  • Dinner
  • Supper

Turns out that winds up being fewer meals than a newborn baby needs. Even if you eat supper late at, say, nine, there’s no name for the midnight and 3:00 AM feedings.
