Rosemary, I learned today, is an excellent memory aid. Apparently if you sniff it every day, or something, your memory improves by as much as mumble percent.
I am impressed by this. I think a few dots need can be joined. Because as is fairly well known, the best thing to stick rosemary in is a leg of lamb.
Accompanied, of course, by garlic – the health giving properties of which are also reasonably well established (helps blood pressure, also the immune system, scares vampires off, etc etc).
Bung in some red wine – which a lot of folk with impressive sounding sciencey letters after their names have told us is also pretty damn good for the ol’ bod.
I think we’ve established now, without doubt, that roast lamb is a health food.
