      What fun! I love the idea that my lunch was possibly the same as what a Roman would have eaten. Great tool for home-schooling too. Fortunately, they turned out, sweet and spicy. I skipped the salt and did not serve them with cheese (none in the house). Fun, tasty and quick...with a little history on the side.
