Roll the Video!

If you have ever visited this blog and wondered, "Who the heck is this Jean Nidetch lady you keep talking about, and why do you want to meet her so badly?" -- this post is for you.

Please enjoy this perfectly "legal" Martini recipe along with a fabulous video I found this morning on YouTube courtesy of the Sun Sentinel.

The "Legal" Martini contains:

1 cup hot water
1 packet instant chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp bitters

Combine, chill and garnish with a button mushroom. Yes, I said a button mushroom. Olives are not legal, silly!

The video contains:

An amazing interview with my idol Ms. Jean Nidetch -- the founder of Weight Watchers. Jean might be a little long in the tooth and a little rough around the edges, but I simply love her to pieces.

So sit back and enjoy your Retro WW Cocktail while Jean tells us how Weight Watchers was born. Be careful, though. You might just fall in love with her, too!

Oh my word, she is a riot! I have to remember this: people say I wish I could lose weight as they munch on a piece of cake. Well, DROP THAT FORK!!!! Love it. Thanks for sharing this.

Hi Mimi! I loved that video. Boy, is she charismatic! "Drop that fork because it's the weapon!" And we have the power. No wonder you enjoy her so much.

Drop the damn fork. That's hilarious!!!

I've loved the dishes that I got from my mom when she died and I had no idea they were pyrex... Apparently you can be a vintage lyres addict without KNOWING there is vintage pyrex! As were watching our weight too (20 ish lbs in 2 months for me & 33 for DH.) Those mini fridges would be wonderful. We've been using 1 cup pyrex glass bowls so we can pretend we have lots of food. ;)

Any tips to find them? Oh...and I have to make a tshirt quoting her!
