Once upon a time...

...there was a beautiful princess.  She had a palace with a million rooms, and an army of cooks to make her meals.  But no one could make a marinara sauce which pleased her.  One day, a handsome young peasant arrived at the palace.  He said "i will give you my recipes in exchange for your throne."  After tasting his sauce, the princess agreed.  The handsome young King grew old and weary managing the affairs of the kingdom.  The Princess lived to be 100, eating well and enjoying life.

The moral of the story : Sometimes it is better to eat like a King than to be one.
