No wonder Liz looked so perfect for her role as Martha in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf."

Still like bacon half done ( which I consider to be NOT BURNT,  assuming burnt or crispy is done for most folks).  Still, it's so good, either way isn't bad.

GOOD REPORTING VILLAGE VOICESeriously, you should be really, really proud of this article. You should send it to your parents so they can put it on the fridge right next to the calendar where they count down the days to the end of fucking civilization.

Of course if this were going on in 2011, Liz would be surrounded by Nutrition Harpies:

"You're going to eat that? Don't you know what bacon does to you?""Put down that white-flour bagette this instant!""FRIED chicken? Potatoes AND biscuits? Gravy?""Alcohol at breakfast, lunch, and dinner?" 

"You'll be dead at 50!"

Actually, I do watch what I eat and pay attention to nutrition, but it's refreshing to see someone enjoy their food without apology.

Mines exactly the same except for the food part, just stick to the libations.

I'm loving the "trifle" business.  Looking at the rest of the meal, I'm guessing the "trifle" is something along the lines of three slices of banana cream pie, with butter pecan ice cream.  Not that there's anything wrong with that....in fact, I think I'm going to start referring to all really indulgent desserts as "trifles"!  Thanks, as always, Liz!!

Hey, if you don't like it, DON'T READ IT.

Simon, why are you so sour?  Did you think you were reading the stock report or something?  Tip: If the headline is about what a movie star eats (ate), don't read it.  It will (apparently) spoil your appetite.

Gee, someone didn't take their meds today. Musto, I loved reading this. It's part of a new book that just came out, so why not report it? And we here on your blog love glimpses into the lives of rich and famous, whether now or then. Thank you.

Yes, and those eating habits never haunted her with health issues at all!

Apologies for being "thick" if you were joking, but a trifle is a very traditional English dessert.  It was usually made from pieces of old, dry cake which were then soaked in some sort of liquor and then layered in a deep bowl with fresh or canned fruit and whipped cream or custard.  There as many variations on this recipe as there are ingredients.

I heard that was an Elvis favorite, deep fried in batter of course
