What Do You Want to Eat?

Today is the most amazing Foodie Day on the planet. It’s National Eat What You Want Day. It’s a day to set aside diets and restrictions, within reason, and just indulge without guilt. I would not recommend a diabetic (like me) eating a Costco Seven Layer Chocolate Cake, that would be suicide by sugar – not good.

Mother’s Day Surf and Turf

Happy Mother’s Day to mothers everywhere. Let’s hope this year, we can gathered together to celebrate the beauty of motherhood. Motherhood is so much more that a biological connection. While blood may be thicker than water, love is as solid as a rock.

Is there Prayer without Reason

Why can’t we have reason if we have prayer? What is so unreasonable about the idea of prayer? I ask because on the first Thursday of May, we have both a National Day of Prayer and a National Day of Reason.

A Chipotle Kissed Cinco de Mayo

Just as Saint Patrick’s Day brings out the Irish in all of us, Cinco de Mayo has a similar cultural effect. Instead of pints, we consume shots. Instead of Corned Beef, it’s tacos. Just as most of the newly born “Irish” of Saint Patty’s Day have no idea what they are celebrating, most think Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s 4th of July.

What the Heck is a Montana Catholic Burger?

Today is National Montana Day. There is much to be said about Montana. Big Sky Country. The 41st state to join the Union, Montana offers explorers both a rich history and exciting adventures. From the beauty of Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and the Little Big Horn, there is much to see and do.

Sunshine in a Glass

Today is the first Sunday of May, and that means National Lemonade Day. Lemonade Day opens us up not only to the conversation about the history of that refreshing summertime drink, but the insanity that has taken hold in the form of over-enforcing small business regulation. I grew up in a time when nearly every kid in America earned their first bit of money by setting up a Lemonade Stand. Legal or not, it didn’t matter.

Kentucky Hot Browns

Today is May Day. On May 1, 1886, in Chicago and other cities, a major union demonstration took place in support of the eight-hour workday. The Chicago protests lasted several days. On May 4, the strike at the McCormick Reaper Plant in the city turned violent.

Yummy National Shrimp Scampi Day

Today is National Shrimp Scampi Day. If you are thinking sautéed shrimp with lots of butter, you are right. In America, often shrimp entrees are called Scampi in our Italian Restaurants. Scampi over Pasta. Scampi Salad. Is Scampi Italian for Shrimp? Or is Scampi a way to cook Shrimp?

Pepperoni Pizza Skillet Dip

Wild Card Wednesday. One of my favorite days of the week. On Wild Card Wednesdays I serve up whatever strikes my fancy. Could make Pancakes for supper, or Filet Mignon with Brandy Cream and Peppercorns. I’ve even been known to order a pizza.
