I have added a hobbit reference to the stew, along with a few spelling changes. I added a list of ingredients but I am using the format used in old recipes, I.E. no numbering, informal. Any comments would be welcome.

Spelling has been corrected, the recipe has been provided by Hubert. I am currently devising a hobbit variation to add to the entry. Any other comments would be welcome in the meantime.

Travelers Stew   Edits in Lime Green

Travelers Stew has been a staple for hungry adventurers and merchants everywhere, hearty broth of weeproot and tuberroots blend well with the mixed food found on a journey. The ingredient that makes this stew unique is the added baisiloc and rosemint, which together can lend strength and health to any tired wanderer. This versatile stew can be changed to add any number of different vegetables and meat that the cook has on hand. The stew can be eaten as a dinner or just a small cup to warm a lonely hermit in the morning.

The stew is thick in consistency, filled with chopped tuberrooots, weeproot, and orange root. Meats like mutton or beef lend the broth a strong aroma. The baisiloc and rosemint add a minty tang to the stew, the robust flavour produced by this combination is a welcome taste to a hungry person. Travelers stew is served hot, to chase away the cold of night in winter. Various spices make the eyes water and smart, and lend flavor to old vegetables. A stale chunk of loibl  bread can be served with it, the broth softens and lends flavor to a long gone loaf. Depending on what the cook has to work with the stew can have any number of ingredients giving each meal a unique touch.

Travelers Stew can be served anywhere and is easy to prepare, even the most horrible of cooks cannot destroy the simple flavours of a good stew. It warms the bones of a guard after dark and braces a simple family for the coming winter. After a hard day's work a bowl of stew can return strength to wearied arms.  Tired adventurers can whip together a hearty meal with ease, and sleep with warmth in their bellies.

Origin of the Food or Beverage
It is unknown who first dubbed the hearty dinner eaten by many for hundreds of years "Travelers Stew", but the meal has been in existence since the first stew pot. The rudimentary blending of easily grown vegetables with the first tamed beasts has been consumed by people of many races. Each of the races add their own special flair to the dish, cooks use what they have on hand to make it unique but still tied to the original by the peculiar taste of rosemint and baisiloc.
Hobbits often claim that they made the original dish ans the shire has its own variation of the stew. When cooked in the shire Travelers Stew is foo for many people. A family gathering requires a massive pot of medlarapple stew as it is know there. The hobbits use a strong medlarapple broth to marinade the meat in. Once the meat is tender the hobbits cook the stew with the broth. Lending a delicious favor to their stews. The hobbits also add certain spices and vegetables like pease to the stew but the true recipe is closely guarded.

Method of Preparation
The following receipt was provided to the author by Hubert Greengrove on a recent stay at Lorehold:
eight tuberroots
two weeproots
five caroots
a hafeb rump of mutton, beef or another meat
pot of water or stock
a handful of baisiloc and rosemint

Start a modest fire, when the heat is hot enough to boil water put a stew pot over the flames. Cube your tuberroots, weeproots, caroots, and any other vegetables you can use and set aside. Cut mutton, beef or other meat into cubes, put into pot and brown. Let as much fat as you can come out of the meat, when meat is almost brown add onions and stir until the meat if brown all the way through. Fill the pot with water or stock and add vegetables. Dice the baisiloc and rosemint and add to the pot. Put in any spices you want to. Boil for a bit and raise it higher from the flames so it can simmer. Wait one hour, stirring every once in a while. When the tuberroots are soft the stew is done and you can enjoy. Feeds eight hungry travelers or a single well fed hobbit.

Travelers Stew provides a cheap and easy meal for any hungry person, wherever they may be. As many an adventurer has learned, a long journey is not complete without a few bowls of Travelers Stew.

When I was just a little bitty boy just finished crawlin' on all fours,
I used to sneak into Rover Nancy's Carriage for an hour or maybe more,
She was visited by nobles and peasants as well as merchants, some with bald heads
They paid her silverbards, and tried to keep pace with Nancy in her big carriage bed.

It was three peds high and two peds wide and soft as a newborn lamb
Blankets and pillows on an extra strong plank, 'twas shakin' but I didn't give a damn
I lay in the dark, a watchin' and a listenin' as clothes got flung and ripped
Didn't get much sleep, but I sure learned heaps watching 'em on Nancy's carriage bed.

After dinner we'd sit around the fire talk about our lives as Rovers too
Some would practice or mend or teach, we'd even tell a fortune for you
I'd sit and listen and watch the fire but then without turnin' my head
I'd know that Nancy was with a man in the middle of her big carriage bed


Now I love to sing and I love to act, I quite like being an acrobat too,
I've tried my hand at painting and drawing, and making jewelry the plural of jewellry is jewellery quite cool,
But in years to come, when I'm old enough, to be truthful, it must be said,
I'd trade 'em all  in the blink of an eye to be with Nancy in her big Carriage Bed Are carriage and bed supposed to be capitalized?

Great entry, we need more dogs.

I looked up weights for dogs of the size of a hob-hound, I would say seven or six hebs (70-60 lbs) might be right.

To justify the fearing of white you could trow a folk tale into your book about a white hob-hound and the bad luck it brings.

Still hoping for more comments, animals that reproduce through fission always give birth. I stand by the definitions given, the only thing I wish to add is that the Mimsy has one main goal, 42.

Alright, I think I have finished everything. I highlighted the lifspan of the tree rock in orange so re could see it this time. I am using the definition of fleshy exactly  2.Botany. consisting of fleshlike substance; pulpy, as a fruit; thick and tender, as a succulent leaf. I am also using the definition of purpose 3.determination; resoluteness. I believe readers will be able to pick this up.
