TODAY IS NATIONAL FROZEN FOOD DAY AND NATIONAL WHITE CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE DAY AND NATIONAL OREO DAY!…
…and we’re going to Manny’s for dinner tonight, too! How in the hell did this happen…
What better way for us to celebrate three holidays than to actually mash them into one super-item?
Frozen Food is one of those things where you wonder how the whole thing happened. Somebody in a cold climate said, “huh, this thing stays good when I leave it in the ice.” Meanwhile, in central Africa, someone said, “huh, my food seems to go bad really fast.” When the two finally met up, they swapped stories and the idea of frozen food was developed. Now they just had to come up with a way to freeze things without actually being stuck in a frozen wasteland. (This is especially poignant as this week in the Twin Cities we will be experiencing our first major multi-day warm-up.)
As for White Chocolate Cheesecake, it would honestly be enough for there to be cheesecake. New York Style or no, cheesecake is just fine the way it is. SP for a long time shunned the food since it made him feel kind of sick, despite being lactose not-just-tolerant-but-also-embracing. By adding white chocolate, which SP and his whole family agree shouldn’t even be called “chocolate,” you’re just making another layer of inaccessibility to today’s holiday. But if there were something that could hold it all together…
That’s where Nabisco comes in. Since they seem to be pushing their products in the form of Food Holidays, they might as well get Oreo out of the way early in the year. Arguably the greatest sandwich cookie on the planet, the Oreo is actually a knockoff of Hydrox, and not the other way around! And frankly, the Oreo could have stopped at regular and Double Stuf varieties; now there’s red velvet, or caramel apple, or whatever other gross thing that doesn’t belong in an Oreo. The true tragedy of Oreo is that Mega Stuf isn’t actually Mega Stuf.
So what did we do this morning for breakfast?
AK is taking the rest of it to work, along with the leftover Cheetos Krispie Bars.
We forgot weigh-in day stuff again!
