While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

Psst! We've got the 411: April 11 is Cheese Fondue Day.

It's time to dig out that mod red fondue set from the attic - over there by the Van McCoy & The Soul City Symphony record - and get to dunking.

Once you've got your vat of molten cheese sufficiently bubbling, set out bite-sized chunks of baguette, apple slices or even sausage to spear and dip.

Melted cheese and bread for dinner? Don't mind if we fondue.

        LM aO! I think she got all the spanking she wants while in prison, although Peewee likes a good spanking.
