Every night I stop at the market near my hotel and pick up a steak, lamb chops or liver, which I broil in the electric oven in my room. I usually eat four or five raw carrots with my meat and that is all.'' She also admitted that she occasionally treated herself to an ice cream sundae. Items from Marilyn's Menu include: Prawn Cocktail, Heirloom Carrot Salad, DiMaggio's Spaghetti and Meatballs, Grilled New York Steak, and Marilyn's Ice Cream Sundae.
