August 19th 1762

I like it so much in 1762 I’m still here! The meals….the meals are unbelievable. Now I’ve discovered when they are! Turns out lunch was ‘invented’ in the 18th century, as dinner got later and later in the day. I went to a Gaudy (sort of celebration meal) at Queens yesterday and they had a mountain of food. Whole roast pheasants, racks of veal, larks, oysters, chicken, cheesecakes. The fellows seem to spend the whole day every day either eating or looking forward to their next meal. To be honest its a bit much and I feel like a nice plain simple meal of bread and cheese now…
