Sally's mom, Gill, was classmates with Mick Jagger at the London School of Economics. There's much debate on the nature of their relationship. Gill claims they lunched regularly. Sally and her sister think Gill's not telling the whole story.

Gill's 1962 edition of 500 Recipes for Budget Meals by Catherine Kirkpatrick doesn't lack, especially in dishes built on Heinz Baked Beanz.

No matter. They did have the real Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup.
