If I am not going to talk about games WTF am I doing here?
Well anyone who regular reads this blog (all four of you) knows I tend to swing off topic from time to time. This is one of those moments. My friends and I are all Lord of the Rings / Hobbit fans, and are happily waiting for the The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. We were amused and bemused last year that Denny's had some how acquired the rights to do a Hobbit Menu. I am not a fan of Denny's but I was snookered and decided to go and see what it was all about. The food had a few funny names but overall was kind of generic, not horrible but nothing to write a blog about.....Shit.
This seemed very much like a missed opportunity. When Denny's announced they were bringing back the Hobbit menu I was curious to see if they would make any improvements.
The answer is no, not significant ones. I have been joking with my friends for a year that they should have Radagast the Hash Brown on menu, and that if I had done the menu it would have been funny, even if the food wasn't very good. Well my friends got tired of my rant and told me to write up a Hobbit / LOTR themed food list. So I did, and it has been a fun mental game trying to come up with clever food names.
Check it out my write up below, please add your own and feel free to use any of these name for your Hobbit themed parties.
