Chocolate holidays are the best!
TODAY IS NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CHIP DAY!
Chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chip banana bread, chocolate chip brownies and pancakes, and on and on. Where do these majesties come from? Awesome story.
In 1937, this woman named Ruth Graves Wakefield, proprietor of the Toll House Inn (see where we’re going with this?), added chunks of chocolate to cookies. The cookies completely blew up out of the stratosphere and in 1939 Nestle added her recipe to their chocolate’s packaging. What did Ruth get out of this? Money? No. A lifetime supply of chocolate. Oh the envy is enormous!
Except that the whole Nestle slave-trade puts a damper on that. Oh well.
We decided to make Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pancakes!
They were super chocolatey and super good! Kodiak delivers again!
Tomorrow is National Coquilles St. Jacques Day. Yeah, one of those…
