“Just boiled, and mashed?” Mag was doubtful.
“Some butter, hot milk, pepper and salt – fit for kings, ma’am! Not that I ever had time to fix ‘em like that for Strider, King Aragorn, that is; roasted in the ashes was more like it, leastways till they were all gone. When you asked what our favorite foods were, I thought, for Mr. Frodo… I could fix them, if you’d rather…” Sam gazed eagerly around the kitchen.
Afterwards, Mag would always remember the joy in Samwise’s face as he prepared the plain, homestyle food: a gift of love for his dearest friend.
