Good Eating Monday: Hobbit Food

My topic today is a report on the Denny's "Hobbit" themed menu. 
We ate lunch there with one of our Air Force single guys, Chris,.this past weekend.
Hobbit Slam

 
 Chris had the "Hobbit Slam" consisting of hash browns, pancakes, eggs, poppy-seed bread french toast and a huge sausage and--- being a 20 year old---ate every bite!
 
 He said the pumpkin creme that came with the pancakes was best, the sausage tasty and the poppy-seed french toast waaay too rich.I tried the "Frodo Roast Beef Skillet" which was pretty good, though the quantity of broccoli in it compared to the picture was lacking. It had a mere 1/2 cup frozen broccoli comprised mostly of stems and 2 small florets.

Turkey & Dressing

 My husband tried the "Dwarves Turkey & Dressing," which was  just that: turkey and dressing. He said it was good, but really just Denny's food with a fancy name.
The Shire Sausage Skillet did look good, though I thought it too much to eat and I was pleased to see they Denny's finally has chicken sausage patties available.
Their coffee cups, at least at the the Denny's here, are ridiculous, however. They're a pint-sized coffee mug. I said to the waitress, "Whatever happened to the regular size ceramic mugs that used to say Denny's on them?"
She didn't know what I was talking about, since those have been gone years and years.
I guess it's been a really long time since I've been to Denny's! LOL.

Since this area is largely military, today is a day off for the base, since Veteran's Day fell on Sunday, instead of a weekday.
It's what they call a "down" day or a "family" day in honor of the holiday.
Many local restaurants around here are offering a free evening meal tonight for any veterans and active duty, such as the Golden Coral.
That's where we'll be meeting up with a number of our young active duty friends tonight.
 
Eat up, me hearties, yo-ho!
