History of Meals on Saturday


Hi guys! My mom gave me the idea this morning to research what people historically ate on Saturdays. So I did a little searching, and this is what I found out:

In Colonial times (in America), at noon on Saturdays, beans were sent to the baker, to bake in his oven. On Sunday morning, the beans (now bean porridge) were brought back to customers with some brown bread. You ate gruel if you were so poor you had to water down your porridge so it lasted longer.
