Plenty of vittles for everyone!
Did You Know? A vittle is food or an item that affords sustenance. It may be anything that one may eat, whether it is vegetables, cakes, meats, oats, dairy, maple syrup, seafood, corn, pasta or quinoa. The nutritional value is not considered, only whether it is possible to eat the item. Most often, the plural form vittles is used
