Bread and Beer?!!?!?!?!?!?!!?

I love bread!! That is why i think the Egyptians were so very lucky! Bread was included in the everyday meals of the Egyptian people.(like I said- LUCKY!) The basic foods for everyone were bread and beer. Many homes had a kitchen brewery to make beer!(insanium in the cranium, dawg!) Irrigated gardens around villas produced a butt-load of fruits and vegetables such as: melons, figs, dates, onions, peas, beans, lentils, lettuces, leeks, cabbage, turnips, carrots, eggplant, and more.(I could pretty much go on forever, but I was nice and chose just a few!)(Your welcome!!) Vines on trellises produced raisins, wine, and table grapes. Juniper berries were grown as a spice.YUM!


  1. OMG, I could NOT stop laughing at the 'insanium in the cranium, dawg' thing, lol. That's A LOT of fruits & veggies. They must've been pretty healthy (at least if they ate all of them!!). (Btw, thanks for just choosing a few!) He he bread is pretty awesome though...

  2. hahahahahahaha "insanium in the cranium dawg" so funny ... why so much beer?
