IT’S NATIONAL PIZZA WITH EVERYTHING (EXCEPT ANCHOVIES) DAY AND NATIONAL CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL DAY!
Everything?! Well, almost everything. For some reason, anchovies were left off of tonight’s menu by the powers that be. It wasn’t us. We’d eat anchovies.
We were able to swiftly pick up pizza at a local joint called Fresh Picked Pizza. They have all sorts of really tasty pizza, but we knew that we had one in mind to get fixed up for the evening.
Do note the lack of anchovies.
As a personal-size pizza, you can barely fit all those ingredients on there. Wonderful.
Today’s other holiday comes at a fortuitous time as AK is battling the Minnesotan common cold. (We’re sure SP will follow suit shortly.) Truly there is no better remedy for the insufferable symptoms quite like a homemade Chicken Soup. It warms the heart and soul and tummy. Thanks to SPom and SPad for always having the tastiest and most comforting chicken soup.
Since SP moved out of his parents’ house, seeing a huge container of chicken soup like this is not infrequent.
With carrots and matzo balls of course.
We feel comforted by our comfort foods.
Tomorrow is National Indian Pudding Day!
Ice cream ahoy!
IT’S NATIONAL COFFEE MILKSHAKE DAY AND NATIONAL BAGELFEST DAY!
Well, it’s not the date for Bagelfest this year. See, Lender’s Bagels moved in to Mattoon, Illinois and proclaimed the city the Bagel Capital of the World. Ridiculous. Then they started this annual festival at the end of July called Bagelfest, which has had parades and performances from the likes of 38 Special and Zac Brown Band. This year, the festival was held this past weekend, but all of our sources (we shouldn’t just trust everything we initially read, eh?) told us today was the day. Even news outlets were reporting that it was Bagelfest Day and nobody was the wiser.
Before work this morning, SP and AK took a trip to Bruegger’s to get some bagel action.
Open-facing a bagel makes it take twice as long to get through and lets you enjoy each bite a little more. However, more cream cheese is likely to get in SP‘s moustache that way.
Red onion and lox are also not optional for most bagel outings.
This evening we had to spoil the amazingness of today’s bagel morning with a coffee-flavored something-or-other. Neither of us like coffee very much at all. Blame our parents? Could be worse. We could be weirdos who hate bananas.
We landed our coffee milkshake thanks to Conny’s Cream Cone, which we’ve written about before. We got a mocha milkshake which we consumed about 1/3 of. Coffee. Not even once.
They make really good ice cream, so it wasn’t all for naught.
Tomorrow is a triple day again: Chicken Finger Day, Creme Brulee Day, and Scotch Day.
