Roxanne channelFrom New Orleans
A man was expected to love his wife, as the following exhortation from the sage, Ptah-hotep, makes clear: "Love your wife, feed her, clothe her, and make her happy Street foods include kebab, meat grilled on a skewer; shwarma, meat grilled on a spit and served wrapped in bread with hummus and vegetables; shish tawook, a chicken dish similar to shwarma; kushari; grilled corn and other vegetables; nuts; and fresh-squeezed juices like mango, orange, or guava juice. Having children for Egyptians is very important not only because like people everywhere they love children, but also because bearing children consolidates the status of the married couple and transforms their social standing. Wines were also known to have been produced in the oases. Once married, however, couples were expected to be sexually faithful to each other.
Young men did not usually choose their own careers. Egyptians also eat out in restaurants. Anpu, the older brother, lives with his wife and younger brother Bata and, one day, when Bata comes in from the fields for more seed to sow, his brother's wife tries to seduce him. Alcohol content would have varied considerably from area to area and from vintage to vintage, but generally Egyptian wine would have had a lower alcohol content than modern table wines. There was no reason for this.
