True, but I usually post all of the LLT feast posts publically so that people can see what the creative process is for her creating the feasts. That's why it says menu is subject to change.

I plan on working up an appetite.

Curious: why the fish? Honestly if it wasn't youz guyz I'm not sure I would trust it.

Fish is part of all of LLT's feasts. Fish was a much bigger part of period cooking then it seems looking at most feast menus. It would be far more likely for people in period to eat fish on a regular basis then say beef. So LLT feels it is important to include. But she also trys very hard to make sure it's something that people will at least try which is why she usually ends up with shrimp, tuna or whitefish.

Our gnocchi making (and theiving) staff isn't going to make it to this feast so it should be safe. If you want to make sure you get your fair share you're welcome to come play in the kitchen. :)

This feast should be interesting because the majority of our regular kitchen staff (The Quantico 911 gang and museclio) can't make it. The Theater Kids are iffy because that's Tech Weekend for Les Miz and spikywheel is head cooking the weekend before so while she's planning on coming I have her penciled in not written in ink.
