Robin tried a new recipe from her "Shakespeare's Kitchen" cookbook tonight--minced lamb foldovers with a broccoli soup on the side, and a bottle of Chaucer's Honey Mead to go with it. Tasty.
On the subject of food, here's a public service announcement, addressed to all those people who dial the 1-800 number for the diet pills advertised on late-night TV or highway billboards.
It doesn't matter what the pill is called, how many scientific-sounding claims they squeeze into the ads, or how many celebrities they hire to pimp the product. There is no pill that will make "fat melt away". There is no way--none at all--to lose weight by taking an over-the-counter pill. Weight loss will occur if you burn more calories than you take in, and that is best achieved by adjusting your food intake and exercising. I hate to break the news to you, but the only way you'll make your body fat "melt away" is if you die in a house fire.
