Welcome to the State of Washington

First of all I want to apologize to the state of Washington. I’m not sure how or why I’ve overlooked you year after year when celebrating each great state on their National State Day. All I know is that I did. It’s high time I embrace Washington and pay tribute to the 42nd State to join the Union. So here goes . . .

Celebrating an Elegant Mother’s Day

Today is Mother’s Day. Today’s share is my 7th Mother’s Day share. Looking back, in 2019 I was a wee bit obsessed with creating the perfect Mother’s Day celebration. That year I managed to write not one, not two but three different posts to honor the day.

National Days and Omelette Time

Today is the 6th day of May. It is also the Friday before Mother’s Day. May 6th is National Beverage Day, Crepe Suzette Day and Nurses Day. The Friday before Mother’s Day brings even more to the National Calendar. We have Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Provider Appreciation Day, National Space Day and School Lunch Hero Day. So what does that all mean? Good question.

Cinco de Mayo and More

We all know what day it is – the 5th of May. Just as everyone suddenly becomes Irish on March 17th, American embrace all things Mexican on May 5th. After all, it’s Cindo de Mayo.

Open-Face Scrambled Egg Sandwich

On the National Front, today is all about the orange. It’s National Candied Orange Peel Day and National Orange Juice Day. Now maybe it’s just me, but I would have tied Orange Juice Day to Florida Day.

Thank You Montana!

Montana, the 41st state to enter the union, is rich in history. It is the site of the Little Big Horn and Custer’s last stand. It was the first state to elect a woman to congress. And it was explored by Lewis and Clark.

Cheater’s Chicken Biscuit Pot Pie

Hands down, Hubby would rather have simple home cooked meals than Fancy-pants Five-Star Gourmet Suppers. Give him a Minnesota Hot Dish or a Great American Pot Pie any day and he’s happy.

Feast of Saint Joseph the Worker

May 1st is a very strange day, historically torn in different directions. It is the mid-way point between Spring and Summer. It is International Workers Day, Loyalty Day and the Feast Day of Saint Joseph the Worker.

Spicy Good Carnitas Asada Fajitas

On the National front, we’ve got two awesome days to celebrate. The first is Brave Heart Day and the other is Super Hero Day. When it comes right down to the nuts and bolts of it, they are one and the same. Super Heroes don’t always wear capes. And Brave Hearts are more than a Mel Gibson movie.

Amazing Chocolate Mousse

Did you know that today is National Babe Ruth Day? That’s Babe Ruth, the baseball player and not Baby Ruth the candy bar. What would be the best way to honor Babe Ruth Day? Buy some peanuts and Cracker Jack and head out to the ball game of course.

Thank You South Dakota

Today is National South Dakota Day. When we think South Dakota, we think Mount Rushmore. Those who are students of history might think Black Hills, Deadwood or Wounded Knee Massacre.
