"You should eat, Mr. Frodo," prompted Sam. He held out a piece of lembas to Frodo, but the older Hobbit did not take it.

The metallic stench of the Black Land filled Frodo's nostrils, and he could not imagine eating a bite. What a far cry this was from the Shire. It would have been time for elevenses now, a mealtime when Hobbits "filled up the corners" before leaving for the day's work.

But here he and Sam did not have enough food for more than one meal a day, and even that ration was dwindling. Time was running out.
