Food & Dining
By Vickie Chao

1     What did the ancient Romans eat? If your answer is pasta or pizza, you are in for a surprise!
2     Back in the old days, the Romans ate three times a day, just like us. Both their breakfast and lunch were quite simple. For their first meal, they would usually have bread with honey or watered down wine. (The Romans thought it rude to drink wine straight up.) For their second meal, they would eat bread with cheese, dates, fruits, and occasionally, some meat. The two modest fares were enough to aid them for a day of hard work. At dusk, they headed back home to enjoy their main meal, dinner.
3     The Romans loved to hold dinner parties. Before their guests arrived, they would have their servants arrange three couches around every low dining table. Each couch could hold up to three people. The Romans had an interesting dining habit. They liked to eat while lying down!
