HOW CAN THERE BE FOUR ON ONE DAY
IT’S NATIONAL POULTRY DAY AND MAPLE SYRUP SATURDAY AND NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CARAMEL DAY AND NATIONAL CORN DOG DAY, ALL AT ONCE!!
Well we combined at least two of these together. When I heard that poultry day aligned with the 3rd Saturday of March – Maple Syrup Saturday – my first thought was obvious:
Chicken and Waffles.
Specifically, the best Chicken and Waffles (hate all you want) that they serve over at Bulldog Northeast. They make these amazing sourdough waffles… but the magic is in the syrup and the chicken. The syrup is thyme-infused, which gives it a bit of that herby aftertaste that meshes well with the chicken. The chicken itself is crispy and delicious, and carries out the most important function of frying chicken which is to preserve moisture of the meat.
We walked away in a stupor trying to think of how the rest of the day could possibly match up. Well for our chocolate caramel fix, we ended up with Grandma Edna’s.
It’s one of the best sweets combinations that we know. Like peanut butter and jelly is to sandwiches, chocolate and caramel are to the dessert world. We need more people like Grandma Edna!
Lastly, we had to celebrate Corn Dog Day. National Corn Dog Day takes place on the first Saturday of the NCAA tournament. We opted for a different direction than State Fair style, and got some corn dogs from Morningstar Farms, our favorite meatless product company.
We did it! And now for the coma.
Tomorrow is Bock Beer Day (though you can’t buy alcohol on Sundays in MN) and Ravioli Day!
