Please endorse me so The Shire can have more power in the WA.

In celebration of our completed embassies, I'd like to present The Shire with this box of Niphredil bulbs for your fair hills. When this winter's snow has melted away, you will see a glimpse from the golden wood in your lands. May the sun shine and the rains fall to benefit your harvests. Feel free to drop by in Lothlorien for a visit any time.

Good evening.

Thank you Lady Galadriel.

Greetings and welcome to the Shire. We are a sleepy little region and keep mostly to our knitting. There are a few empty burrows that you ma take up residence in, so help yourself.

Much obliged. I am glad to move into this very comfy hobbit hole. And I may have mushroom recipes to share.

I haven't had a good Mushroom Stew in ages.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup
Serves 4-6 Hobbits

Ingredients

50g butter
250g chopped onions
500g fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 teaspoons dill (fresh or dried)
1 tablespoon mild paprika powder
500ml vegetable stock
250ml milk
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper to taste
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
125ml sour cream
Fresh parsley for decoration

Melt the butter in a large pot. Sauté the onions in the butter for about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 5 more minutes. Stir in the dill, paprika and vegetable stock. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.

In a separate small bowl, whisk the milk and flour together. Pour this into the soup and stir well to blend. Cover and simmer for 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the salt, ground black pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Mix together and allow to heat through over low heat, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add sour cream and stir. Do not boil after this point. Serve hot, topped with some fresh chopped parsley.

Sounds lovely.
