His Daily Bread

Written for the recipe-fic challenge on LiveJournal.


His Daily Bread

Frodo awoke to the scent of baking bread. He took a deep breath, rejoicing in the odors of yeast and flour, treacle and honey.

“Ah--brown bread today!” he thought as he sat up. He took stock; the sun was shining; his stomach was calm and head clear. With only a mild ache to his shoulder, he found he looked forward to Rosie’s brown bread spread with sweet butter and May’s currant jam. Today, he thought as he rose and began reaching for his shirt, trousers, and braces, it is good to be a Hobbit of the Shire.

Frodo Baggins smiled.
