You're back! With Boromir! Yay!! ^_^

Author Reply: Oh yes, I'm back with Boromir - he's one of my very favorite characters, and as such is a continuing theme in my work :) - I'm very glad you enjoyed this!

Poor Mag, having to deal with these two as she does! Clever children, to obtain the lemon ice! And all so very deviously! Lovely premise and story. Excellently done.

Author Reply: Thank you so much for your kind words, which are always appreciated!
Are you familiar with LiveJournal? My friend EdorasLass has a whole series featuring Little Boromir and Faramir and their patient Nanny. I would be happy to direct you there, if you are interested - I think you would enjoy them very much.:)

This is a very charming piece! Little Faramir is adorable as the snatch-and-grabber of the two, with Little Boromir as the diversion. And I love Boromir's last lines.

Do write more adventures of the boys and Mag the Cook.

Author Reply: Thank you for your kind words! There is one other short tale of Boromir in the kitchen that is complete, and another story featuring the young brothers coming soon. I will post them both here as soon as may be. Thanks again!

Yay, the return of Mag the Cook! Though I am a little surprised that Boromir has given his baby brother the more dangerous task. :-D

My summertime favorite! But is it canon? I think we can make it work--snow from the summit of Mt. Mindolluin, lemons from Dol Amroth, honey instead of sugar. (The emperor Nero was supposed to have enjoyed fruit ices made from the snow of the Apeninnes, so there is precedent).

Author Reply: Ah, Faramir is young, but he's deep - no one would suspect him as part of the plot!

I was thinking of snow from the mountains, or ice cut from frozen mountain lakes, and stored in sawdust, as was done (I think) in New England and the midwest during the last century. I did try to think of a less-complicated dessert, but nothing else really had that aura of rare delicacy as lemon ice. Well, mango or coconut, maybe, as I enjoyed last week, but that's bending canon way too far - even for me!
