Brown Bag it Day, Wine and Meatball Boats

Hello and welcome to the 25th Day of May. On the National Front, we have Wine Day and Brown-Bag-It-Day. Both lend themselves nicely to an assortment of delicious recipes to share. Although I would not recommend Brown Bagging It with Wine. The whole idea behind Brown Bagging It is to have a healthy-er alterative to fast food lunch.

Wyoming and Barbecue Foil Packs

Today is National Wyoming Day. Wyoming – how I love that state! I love the people. I love the hard life it offers. Sometimes I wonder where we might be today, had we moved to Wyoming way back all those years ago. But then again, there would be no Kiddo or Kamren or Grace.

Every year, on the third Friday in May, the powers that be declair it to be National Pizza Party Friday. Great. They couldn’t declair the third Saturday instead? No, it has to be Friday.

Idaho and the Blue-Plate Special

Hello there, and welcome to the 17th day of May. If you’ve been with me for a while, then you might remember that May 17th is National Idaho Day. Idaho – home of the Russet Potatoes, stanch Republicans and even the focal point of secession.

National Coquilles Saint Jacques – Sort of

Hello Neighbor. Did you know that today is National Be a Good Neighbor Day? We should all be good neighbors, or at the very least try to be good neighbors. Sometimes that’s easier said than done.
