Dreamflower's Dribs and Drabs  by Dreamflower

 Pearl Took asked for a Pippin drabble.  This one turned out to be a drabble-and-a-half (150 words)

First Breakfast

He padded into the kitchen and built up the fire in the stove, and then took the kettle to the pump and filled it up and put it on. Then into the larder—there was the bread they had brought from the Hall, the eggs, some sausages, rashers of bacon, potatoes and butter and honey. Some toast and a nice fry up, that would do the trick.

Whistling cheerily he set to work. Wouldn’t Merry be surprised with their first first breakfast at Crickhollow?
