Pepys 1660 (2)

"So we met with an acquaintance of his in the walks, and went and drank, where I ate some bread and butter, having ate nothing all day, while they were by chance discoursing of Marriot, the great eater, so that I was, I remember, ashamed to eat what I would have done."

(February 4, 1660)

The policy at our table growing up was: he who eats the fastest, gets the most. My brother and I still eat much faster than we should.

I had meant to "star" the Pepys quote, rather than the food, but the picture is cool as well. I just really like Pepys! I have the collection of his diaries though of course, haven't read them all! :o)
