For this meal eat the types of food eaten by hobbits which could include seed cake, potatoes (preferably mashed), other steamed vegetables (e.g. carrots or squash), and a main dish of chicken (baked would be fine). Milk, water, or tea is suggested for the drink. Be sure to have some cheeses and crackers or toast with raspberry jam. An apple, blueberry, or pumpkin pie for dessert is also highly recommended.
For this meal feast on anything meat, chicken, turkey, beef, pig, etc. Different types of meat are to be eaten for the appetizer, sides, and main course. If you're feeling a bit too carnivorous feel free to add on some chips, crackers, or even a light salad.
Unlike the dwarvish meal, a healthier selection is recommended which could include salad(s), fruits, yogurt, and a small amount of meat. Lembas bread should be eaten with this meal as well. Fruit juice or water is the suggested beverage. A “fancier” dessert is also recommended which could include cheesecake, truffles, or ice cream sundaes.
The main course for this meal includes a type of freshwater fish (cooked, not raw). Be creative and add make some sides or steal a few favorite items from the other meals. For dessert we suggest an Oreo crumb covered chocolate mousse with gummy worms.
