For whatever reason, when it comes to Indiana Day, I’ve skipped over it, opting instead for a variety of other things to share. Most notably is that November 16th is also National Fast Food Day. This oversite makes Indiana one of only two states in the Union we haven’t celebrated. That simply won’t do.Continue reading “Indiana Cravings and Fast Food Goodness”
Not quite. It’s a cake – a bundt cake to be precise. After all, today is National Bundt Day. Which begs the question, what is a Bundt Cake?Continue reading “Is That Jelly Doughnut?”
Today is National Spicy Guacamole Day – aka Homemade Guac Day. This is not to be confused with National Guacamole Day, September 16. What’s the difference? Well the spice level for one thing. And today’s Guacamole should be homemade, not store bought.Continue reading “Celebrating the Flavors of Guacamole”
Today on the National Front, it’s Indian Pudding Day. While I’ve shared Indian Pudding in the past, frankly it’s not one of my favorite dishes. Basically Indian Pudding is cornmeal, molasse and milk. Not even authentically Native American.Continue reading “Saturday Night Naked Fried Chicken”
Today is National French Dip Sandwich Day. So what does that have to do with the Stanley Hotel in Colorado? Everything!Continue reading “Lunch At the Stanley Hotel”
Today is Veterans Day. No apostrophe. Veteran’s Day implies it belongs to one veteran. Veterans’ Day would mean a multitude of veterans possess the day. The day is to honor all veterans, and not meant to belong to anyone.Continue reading “Sometimes Heroes Don’t Wear Capes”
On this day in 1775, the Continental Congress first established the Continental Marines. Two battalions of Marines fought for America’s independence both on land and at sea. The Corps was abolished at the end of the Revolutionary War. Can you imagine?Continue reading “Best Wishes to the Corp”
It’s hard to believe, but there is more to Louisiana than just the French Quarter of New Orleans. And there’s more to celebrate than Mardi Gras. I know, mind blowing, isn’t it?Continue reading “Exploring Louisiana”
Good morning and welcome once again to National Cappuccino Day. I say this as I sip a pint of New Orleans Chicory Coffee, and not a Cappuccino. Have you tried Chicory Coffee? It’s not really coffee, but it sure taste good. Those in the know say to brew 2/3 part coffee with 1/3 part Chicory. Mine comes already mixed as the perfect blend.Continue reading “Cappuccino By the Spoonful”
Did you remember to change your clocks? As of 2 o’clock this morning most Americans (and others) have returned to wasting Daylight. Oh, I mean Daylight Savings Ends, so I guess we’re using all the sunlight we’ve been saving since spring. Once upon a time we did this in October, now it’s the first Sunday in November. Guess we needed more time to save up all that light. So we get to see the sun in the morning, but our evenings are dark long before the day is over.Continue reading “Dark, Rich and Oh So Yummy!”

Way cool. I’m feeling both humble and proud. It’s been so much fun sharing with everyone. Looking forward to many more shared recipes, memories and conversations.
Have a blessed day everyone!
Today is Chinese Take Out Day. Yep, it’s that day again when we talk about how we don’t do Chinese Take Out and why. You all know my stand – it’s not that I object to Chinese Talk Out, we just don’t do much in the way of take out period. The only exception, for the most part, is take and bake pizzas.Continue reading “Take Out or Cook In?”
Welcome to the first Thursday of November. If you’ve been around for a while (thanks!), then you know that today is National Men Make Dinner Day. There are only five rules. The biggie is that the men must cook – no barbecuing, grilling or ordering take out is allowed.Continue reading “Calling All Male Cooks”
Today is National Sandwich Day. So take a guess as to how many sandwiches are eaten per day in American? Now remember, we are talking office workers and construction workers and kids in school. That’s a lot of people. Some estimate that 300 million sandwiches are eaten per day. Wow!Continue reading “What is a Sandwich?”
