[FHCx266] National Ice Cream Cone Day/National White Chocolate Day

Dessert!

IT’S NATIONAL ICE CREAM CONE DAY AND NATIONAL WHITE CHOCOLATE DAY!

Prose by SPuncle SPicky: “White chocolate is NOT chocolate.  It’s just congealed cacao grease with a little — I guess I’ll go that far — chocolate taste.”

Yes, there’s something weird about white chocolate. There are very few things that have white chocolate that are worth going out of your way for. We even disguised our white chocolate consumption in this autumny bread pudding from Lund’s & Byerly’s:

But we also have to say hello to autumn by waving goodbye to summer with one last treat: an ice cream cone!

[FHCx232] National Soft Ice Cream Day/ National Hot and Spicy Food Day/National Potato Day

IT’S NATIONAL SOFT ICE CREAM DAY AND NATIONAL HOT AND SPICY FOOD DAY AND NATIONAL POTATO DAY!

We were cruising along at United Noodles earlier in the week, when SP found this staring at him from the shelf. Knowing we had two holidays coming up and both were listed on the package, we had to do it!

That potato seems like he has something to say.

Unfortunately, the chips weren’t hot or spicy. They tasted like regular barbecue chips. I guess Western taste in spicy is very different. We even had a zen moment where we remembered International Hot & Spicy Food Day, when we made an international dish… But just to make sure that we got something spicy, SP had a steak bowl at home with some Frontera salsa.

After all of that hot and spicy, make sure that you have something to nullify at least a little. Thanks to Mythbusters, we know for sure that Milk (dairy) is best for neutralizing the heat. Soft serve was our way of doing that, and when we think soft serve ice cream cones, we think Conny’s. Barring that, some sort of fast food. McDougal’s McDonald’s it is!

 Tomorrow is National Lemonade Day and National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day.
