TODAY IS NATIONAL BRATWURST DAY AND NATIONAL RUM DAY!
AK isn’t so much a fan of sausages, but SP could probably get his heart in trouble after downing a number of these cholesterol-laden German wursts. So because of both of those reasons, we don’t keep them in the house. (We don’t even own a grill yet after owning the house for a year. It’s a shame, really.)
But we did get these quintessential Midwestern brats thanks to Sheboygan, WI-based Johnsonville.
Pretty tasty. The smoked flavor goes a long way. We would have loved to get our hands on some Butcher & The Boar sausages today but it wasn’t in the cards.
Today also celebrates a pirate favorite. Used to be that rum was favored on ships because you couldn’t guarantee the water was safe to drink! What a time to be alive, scurvy and all that. Tonight for dinner we went to Forepaugh’s to celebrate a SPAKiversary, and the bartender made us this delicious Caribbean rum martini thing.
Tomorrow is National Vanilla Custard Day!
