Roman style food

A suggested activity that I've been putting off for weeks is to make some Roman style foods. We finally did it today for lunch.

Bean salad - similar to something the Romans would have eaten...
fresh vegetables and salads were a favorite food Our lunch: bean salad, crustulum (garlic toast), olive rolls, and artichokes.
Olive roll

For dessert, we had cinnamon rolls

Rolls were popular because they were made of Romans' favorite food: bread. (Maybe I'm Roman!) It was said that the only things Romans cared about were bread & circuses!
Surprisingly, my kids liked the food...especially the artichoke. They kept asking for more! Cameron even discovered that he likes green olives as well as black olives. Maybe it helped that they somewhat helped make it.
