I can't tell you how glad I am I clicked on the nutritionist lampoon video... that's Mitchell and Webb! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. Peep Show is the greatest television comedy ever!!



Thanks for good Friday links, as always. I may go with the yogurt cake for my red, white and blue July 4th dessert schtick... haven't settled on one yet.

Love the nutritionist vid! I didn't know the difference between nutritionist and dietician, so it was educational as well as entertaining. :)

Also, that classic Margarita recipe is truly a classic. I was taught to make them that way over 25 years ago and haven't looked back. Which reminds, me, I'm out of fixins for the weekend!
