“I didn’t forget your breakfast. I didn’t bring your breakfast.  Because you didn’t eat your din-din.”

Bette is still coming up trumps with the recipes. There is just something GOOD about all of hers I think. And I do love the use of the term “din-din” – I’d forgotten all about that – my dad used to say it.

Her Hollywood Salad was weird but good. I must say that I have never eaten so many dates in my LIFE – what was it about dates in Hollywood in the 1930s – they all LOVED them. We had the salad stuffed into pepperdew peppers and popped on top of some Ritz crackers – very 1970s dinner party stylie.

And the verdict? As Ginger put it, “There’s no need to apologise for THAT!”
