    • The Blue Plate Special tonight is Filet of Doormice marinated in Flamingo Essence, roasted over an open fire, served atop a bed of sun-dried Tuscany beets, lightly drizzled with Vestal Virgin of Apollo Olive Oil, and accompanied by a generous side of fermented fish.

        • It appears that one thing the new administration will have to do around here is: Improve the vittles!

            The Emperor did send Honorius to the Han Empire in search of food, among other things. The caravan is due to arrive any day now, and there are reports of spices and new herbs. Cured meats and new recipes. Lots of new produce items and their seeds. There are rumors of a delicacy known as a "thousand year old egg'.

            • Now if those Roman & Armenian Senators would just get on with approving Scipius' Mutual Prosperity Treaty...

              Thus allowing for construction of the continuous Roman - Armenian East/West Cartobahn...

              We might enjoy the delights of some 100 day old eggs!

              • Perhaps the "Vittles and Pills Bureaucracy" (henceforth known as the VPB) needs to be alerted about eggs that are 1,000 years old being imported to Rome. Even Bob's Express Deliver Service could get the eggs here a bit faster than that <sigh>

                The VPB may also want to look into inordinately long transport times on eggs from Armenia -- 100 days in transit exceeds the guidelines of the VPB for perishables.

                Reference Cited : VPB Article 786 Chapter 89, Para 42, Subset 96, Line 14 "Eggs must be delivered before they begin to smell bad".

                  • Thousand year old egg cut in half:





                    Looks great, heh? Probably even better with fermented fish:





                    Even with fossilization!:





                    Rumor has it that the Emperor has already reserved an entire gross from the first caravan for Senator Torienus, who is alway complaining about lack of good food.

                    • Franzius, the delicacies are from the Han Empire, not Armenia! By the way, the goods are quickly disappearing from the market. If any of you want anything, you better head over to the market quickly; I don't reserve any of the goods, and the next caravan will be due in a...*looks at agenda*...a week, if there is no trouble along the way.

                      • Have you all heard the news? I've heard a rumor that Argus of Corinth has left Rome for good and returned to Greece to live out his days in solitude! Can this be true?

                          The Mithraeum will be poorer for it. I hope this does not meen Mithras has forsaken Rome! Argus was a good Seer and messenger of the Gods.

                            Didn't that blabbering old fool do enough damage? See below for an example of Kool-Aidus drinker:

                            • Cleitus and the Slaughtered Lamb needs your patronage! Stimulate the economy! No one has been ordering the "Blue Plate Special" ever since Lucius Tungus has been called up to serve in the Parthian Front!

                              The Thousand Years Old Eggs are getting older by the day! Duckfeet is going spoiled, and even the ever-popular Ostrich Legs have gone unsold! Falco(all of them) would be turning in his grave right now! Come on folks! Even the Fermented Fish will not keep forever! Help out the poor little business owner!
