Oh, well, I agree, most of the time, but I think private meals in your
campsite are a special case, don't you?  I mean, I want to give something to
my crew that doesn't break the "reality" we're trying to create, but it's
not for public review and appreciation.

So, the crew will appreciate eating foods that would have been available at
the time, and they'll put any variations under "creative license," or,
"perhaps this cook just didn't publish."

It's hard enough being period at the campsite....
