TODAY IS NATIONAL KAHLUA DAY AND NATIONAL STRAWBERRY DAY!
I didn’t know this before today, likely because I’m not an alcohol connoisseur, but Kahlua comes from Mexico. I guess I could have figured that it was some sort of South/Central American thing by the name, but maybe something from the Pacific? And why is it that it’s so integral to the White Russian, when Russia and Mexico have so little to do with each other?
Regardless, The Dude has inspired us to have a White Russian in honor of Kahlua day.
It was alcohol at about 12:30pm on a Saturday. I guess this is our life now. Thanks, FHC.
It’s also Strawberry Day: another day in a series of days that celebrate produce that should not at all be in season. In fact, I find it kind of amusing that these days, there are probably kids who just assume that strawberries “happen” all year. Why should they not? For that matter, there are probably kids who just assume all strawberries are deep red and perfectly ripe, because why would produce distributors lie about something like that?
That’s where Driscoll’s comes in. “We naturally breed berry plants to be more resistant to diseases and pests while meeting our quality standards for flavor and appearance. Our berries are never genetically modified or subjected to irradiation. Each year, we study thousands of potential varieties to choose the top 1% to farm and sell under the Driscoll’s brand name. It takes 5-7 years to develop a new patented variety of Driscoll’s strawberries.” Well, ok then! I’ll take some strawberries please.
WEIGH IN DAY RESULTS!
SP: +1.8 pounds, total lost: 85.8
AK: +0.8 pounds, total lost: 25.0
Not a great week for SPAK, despite “doing the right things.” At some points in the weight loss journey, things get stuck and you really have to push through to get past the plateau. We’ll keep doing our best!
Tomorrow is National Chocolate Soufflé Day!
