Will you be stickeing to locally available foods, also? I.e., No imports of
fruit from Chile, etc, only what might have been available in your personas'
locale? That would be really (!) serious re-creation...

Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, and the beginning of Lent. I will be observing
the medieval Lenten diet, which is basically vegan (though honey is
allowed). I am using the diet from @ c.780-800 (my time period), which is no
animal product, one meal a day (with a 'collation' 
in the evening), and fasting on Friday. Sunday is a 'feast day', which means
more than one meal, and bigger meals. Yay. :-/ I don't know how far I'll get
on the one meal and fasting part. We'll see.

Anybody with me? I can dig up later stuff if you're interested.

Oh- and whining about Lent is a very period tradition, and I plan to do it.
