If You Were Me and Lived in… Elizabethan England – Carole P. Roman, Paula Tabor (Illustrator)



Elizabethan England was an incredibly interesting and strange time.

Everything from the clothes to the food to even the structure of the houses was different – B>very different.

There were two small bedrooms in the rear of the house where you shared a bed with your sisters.

I can’t imagine doing that!

The food, in particular, stood out to me.

Meats were stewed with fruits, making them sweet and savory at the same time.

At first, I couldn’t believe that that would taste good…but then I realized that we still do some of that today.

I make a mean apricot pork tenderloin and I’ve definitely made a few stews using apples in it.

The weirdest thing that happened in this book –

Nobody drank water. Cider made from apples and ale were more popular.

Wild, right?

If you want to learn more, check out this book! Such an incredibly interesting one!!
