I’ve really been enjoying quizzes lately! LOL

Sam is the faithful servant of Frodo Baggins. He cares an awful lot about his master and would probably give his life for him. Though Sam meets many marvelous people as he journeys with Frodo, he still wishes he was back home in the Shire.

Take the “Which Hobbit are you?” quiz created by Cora Black!

and my DH is…

Frodo lives a peaceful life in the Shire until he is unfortunate enough to inherit the ring from his Uncle Bilbo. Frodo is determined to destroy the ring and defeat the Dark Lord. Though the thought of this scares him out of his wits, he still marches forth bravely into Mordor with his faithful friend and servant Sam.

I was just starting to take dinner out of the crockpot and make the side dishes when my FIL called. It seemed that my sil and bil were going to bring dinner (he’s a chef) and there was enough for our family too – could they all come over here? Even though we are in an apt we have lots of space and a decent sized kitchen. I ran around like a wild woman – vacuuming and stashing! LOL By the time they got here I was WIPED out! LOL

There was lamb, zucchini and garbanzo beans and this wonderful sauce served over cous-cous (sp?) – iranian bread with different dips (for lack of a better term). The dips were made out of eggplant, hummus, roasted red peppers and black eye peas. And then we topped ourselves off with bakalava (sp?) and mint tea.

All that good food combined with the loooong day and the hasty clean up equaled one tired Momma! LOL I practically feel asleep in my chair several times!! I hope they weren’t offended! :-/

Overall it was a nice evening – I didn’t even have to do the dishes!!
