What’s in a Name?
For those of you who read the blog name and understand the reference, Bravo! Bravissimo! I’ll cook you the meal of your choice. And for those of you who don’t recognize the reference, that’s ok. But you should really read the Lord of the Rings. “Filling up the corners” is the term hobbits use to describe that time period following a large meal where they continue to nibble at their favorite tidbits. I imagine they often fill up the corners, due to the frequency of daily meals and neighborhood parties.
I don’t know whether corners were filled in the Shire as a result of high quality food or simply because it’s in the nature of a hobbit to eat… all the time… but I’m sure all of you have experienced a similar feeling before. Imagine sitting at the dinner table, surrounded by friends, having just finished a sumptuous feast, refilling your wine glass, nibbling the last of the goods, and feeling completely satiated. So go forth to cook, eat, and have fun while doing so.
