Quote of the Day: Food is our common ground, a universal experience. James Beard  National Frozen Food Day It’s National Frozen Food Day and a reminder that there are some delicious choices in the frozen food sections at our local grocery stores.  After a long day with the kids or a 12 hour day cooking for customers, it’s nice to be able to look inside the freezer for something quick and easy to prepare.  Here are the top five items that put a smile on my face when I rummage through the coldest part of the ice-box.   A)  Home Run Inn Pizza – I know it is one of the lesser known brands out of Chicago, but if you can get your hands on one, give them a try.  The crust, cheese, and toppings are all top-notch.  The...

National Clams on the Half Shell Day Quote for Today: There is only one drinking spot for us and it is the Clam. Peter, The Family Guy      March 31st is National Clams on the Half Shell Day.  How this day came about I have no idea. In doing some research on this subject, I came to realize that no one else had any insight as to how this day came about either. No matter, Clams are delicious and don’t need a special day to be enjoyed.  I personally love raw clams on the half shell, but some of the most die-hard, full bellied, fried clam lovers do not.  Since this holiday does not specify raw clams, I am going to focus on a New England favorite, the “Stuffie.” These Clams available all along the North Atlantic Coast are generally...

Quote for Today: “To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.” Anthony Bourdain National Moldy Cheese Day Today October 9th is National Moldy Cheese Day.

National Almond Day Quote of the Day: I said to the almond tree, “Friend, speak to me of God,” and the almond tree blossomed. Nikos Kazantzakis Today is National Almond Day. Roasted, candied, smoked or salted they make a great snack on their own. These nuts are native to the Middle East and were domesticated around 3000 B.C. Evidence of almonds were found in King Tut’s tomb. Ancient people were brave souls because in their wild form, almonds produced a cyanide gas when handled or ingested. As almonds moved throughout the world, they finally landed in California where eighty percent of the world’s supply comes from today. Here is a savory recipe for you to try.

National Iced Tea Day

Quote for Today: “Imagine a glass of Summer Iced Tea. Take a long cool sip. Listen to the ice crackle and clink. Is the glass half full half empty?” Vera Nazarian Today is National Iced Tea Day. Being a Southerner, I have had my fair share of Tea so sweet that it makes the hair of the back of your neck stand up. Growing up in Georgia, I just assumed that all Tea was ice cold, sickeningly sweet, women drank it from tall ornate glasses and most of the men used Mason Jars. No offense ladies, but I always thought it wiser to fill up a quart jar once, therefore leaving a free hand for other things (remote). Little did I know that most of the world drank their Tea hot and just about anywhere outside the South (even...
