For the 'Breakfast' challenge.

Before they left Edoras the companions ate a breakfast of thick porridge with honey and cream.

Aragorn was reminded of breakfasts with his own people, on cold, cold, mornings in the Angle.

Gimli thought of breakfasts at home, porridge cooked overnight at the side of the forge.

Gandalf thought of breakfasts eaten at Bag End.

All three would have been surprised to know that Legolas, nibbler of lembas, thought,too, of similar breakfasts at home of thick porridge, honey and cream.

But elves survive better on short rations than mortals; and would not embarrass others by making their self-sacrifice obvious.
