[FHCx271] National Chocolate Milk Day/National Corned Beef Hash Day

IT’S NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MILK DAY AND NATIONAL CORNED BEEF HASH DAY!

Corned beef hash can be great or not great. Great is the kind you get from Mel’s Diner in San Francisco, or homemade by SPad. We chose not great (but still okay) from Hormel.

We doctored ours up with some salt and pepper. And later, some ketchup.

But to help us sleep, some chocolate milk!

Unfortunately, the sugar free syrup makes the milk look a bit more purple than brown…

Still a nice treat.

Tomorrow is National Strawberry Cream Pie Day and National Drink Beer Day!

[FHCx110] National Garlic Day/National Amaretto Day

Graaaalic.

TODAY IS NATIONAL GARLIC DAY AND NATIONAL AMARETTO DAY!

If SPAKville was a TV show, garlic would be in the main cast. Not a recurring character, but like a full-fledged, contracted-per-season actor. And he’d be the one that everyone liked working with. A lot.

We put garlic in and on everything. Pizza, pasta, stir fry, burgers, vegetables, everything. And we should definitely make a nod to The Stinking Rose, our favorite garlic-based restaurant, located on the West Coast. Everything from their Bagna Cauda to their garlic ice cream is fantastic. We wholly recommend you go sometime.

Tonight we celebrated twofold: with some homemade pizza, and with some home-roasted garlic thanks to cousin SPamy’s Chanukah gift for AK.

Garlic should go on top of the sauce to stay put, but under the cheese so as to give happy garlic surprises.

Add cheese, mushbooms, umyums, and some Hormel turkey pepperoni

This contraption is amazing.

We finished up dinner and somewhat begrudgingly dragged ourselves to observe today’s alcoholiday. SPom supplied us with some Disaronno and we made a Bailey’s Vanilla Silk.

As usual, SP thought it was not that great and AK thought it was okay. Movin’ on.

Tomorrow is National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day and National Lima Bean Respect Day!
