Bless you for that, Ilsebet, but I'm the one who expects it. Since I  
can't engage in many other activities (I can watch people do stuff,  
but I can't do a lot of it myself) because the events chiefly take  
place on Sabbath, cooking is one of the few things that I can do in as  
medieval a way as I can reasonably expect of myself. Therefore I  
really want to make a good, solid attempt at using Period ingredients  
-- and LATER, learning Period recipes and styles of cooking. I'm  
trying to please me, not everyone else. Anybody else doesn't like the  
way I cook, they can go get their meals else-bloody-where! ;)
