Cordon Lightfoot says
IT’S NATIONAL CORDON BLEU DAY!
That’s right, blue ribbon winners, we are celebrating some breaded, fried chicken! Some claim that this thing is just Schnitzel with cheese. Origins date back to the mid-20th century, and it’s not actually that French of a dish, as far as we know. But it’s tasty!
We had trouble finding a place that makes it. As Monday nights are the nights for SP and his friends to hang out, we didn’t want to go to lengths to make the stuff at home. Seems to be a recurring theme for SPAK that things are hard to find and we have to resort to things like Jell-O Mousse!
Anyway, we took a trip to The Muddy Pig in St. Paul. SP called ahead to make sure they actually had the Cordon Bleu we wanted. And they claimed so! But then… well, we won’t go into it but it wasn’t the most pleasant experience. Sometimes these things happen.
With some dill-sauced mashed potatoes. Yay.
Tomorrow is going to be one of our favorite days of the year. National Caramel Day, National Raisin and Spice Bar Day, but most importantly it’s National Deep Dish Pizza Day.
