OUR Monthly D& D Dinner MEETUP!
You ( and a guest) are cordially invited to attend a Pot Luck "Dinner and Discussion" at Elle's beginning at seven PM.
The dinner Theme:
What did the Ancient Egyptians eat?
The diet of the ancient Egyptians depended on social position and wealth. Tomb paintings, medical treatises, and archaeology reveal a variety of foods. Peasants might eat a limited diet, including the staples of bread and beer, complemented by dates, vegetables, and pickled and salted fish, but the wealthy had a large range to choose from.
Vegetables included onions, leeks, garlic, and lettuce. Legumes included lupines, chickpeas, broad beans, and lentils. Fruit included melon, fig, date, palm coconut, apple, and pomegranate. ( I see a lot of simple possibilities here!)
Domesticated animals, oxen, sheep, goats, and swine, provided dairy products, meat, and by-products, beef and pork fat used for cooking. Geese, ducks, quail, pigeons, and pelicans were available as fowl. Eggs were eaten.
