Lets talk Medieval Times Food!!!
One of the first things I ask Zechariah when we started talking about a Medieval Times Party is: What do you want to eat? His response was Mutton. What the heck is Mutton?
He proceeded to tell me all about the way people ate back then. Like NO silverware!!! NO vegetables!!! Just lots of Mutton (still don't know what the heck Mutton is yet) and big loaves of bread and lots of grapes and apples. He said that he wanted every one to have a Leg of Mutton (which I eventually found out was Lamb) LOL... HE'S NOT GETTING LAMB!!! a whole loaf of bread and a big bowl of grapes. HA HA HA....But, we Finally did come up with a happy medium on this one.
Jeanne & I found out that they didn't just have a meal, they celebrated with a feast. So we decided to give him that. Zech was right they did eat a lot of Lamb and small fowl (birds) and a lot of bread, grapes and apples. They also would eat cheese and a soup made out of harvest vegetables.
We decided to decorate the serving counter up with lots of large harvest vegetables, fruits and breads. We wanted the whole meal to look like a Huge Feast. We did go to Party City and bought gold plates and napkins, NO SILVERWARE just as he requested.
I decided to serve chicken and turkey legs (my kind of Mutton) I have a small pizza place a few miles from my home called Stevarino's. Tony and his wife make the best broasted chicken ever. I asked Tony if he would roast me some turkey legs along with my chicken order, he smoked them and they tasted amazing. I also had him make me a pan of potato wedges too (delicious also). And if you look close enough you can see that I snuck in some fresh veggies and dip.
THE DRUM STICK SALUTE!!!
AT EVERY TABLE!!!
HA HA HA HA!!!!
WHAT A GOOD BOY I THINK HE'S EATING SOME VEGGIES TOO!!!
OH MY!!! HE CONCURRED IT!!!
I THINK WE CAN SAFELY SAY; ZECH GOT THE MEDIEVAL TIMES FEAST HE WAS LOOKING FOR.
