[FHCx290] World Food Day/National Liqueur Day

Around the world!

TODAY IS WORLD FOOD DAY AND NATIONAL LIQUEUR DAY!

Liqueur is what you have when you want alcohol but you want it to taste like something completely unrelated. Coffee liqueur, orange liqueur, etc. In the true American spirit, they are frequently sweetened to all hell. If we had to pick one liqueur for today, we would pick Grand Marnier. It’s boss.

World Food Day you ask? Celebrate the world’s food? The day was established in 1979 as the anniversary of the creation of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization in 1945. Basically, it’s all about becoming aware of the world’s food and agriculture in both its pride and challenges. Every year has a theme, and 2016’s is climate change. “Climate is changing. Food and agriculture must too.”

But to celebrate, we took a trip to Minneapolis’s World Street Kitchen, to have some worldly food.

These brussels sprouts are some of the best on the planet.

The Korean Yum Yum Bowl. Korean bbq beef short rib with peanuts, kimchi, onions, and secret sauce, served over rice.

 

We also stopped by next door to Milk Jam to get some ice cream. Look at the kinds of flavors they have here.

[FHCx196] National Mac and Cheese Day/National Grand Marnier Day

TODAY IS NATIONAL MAC AND CHEESE DAY AND NATIONAL GRAND MARNIER DAY!

Grand Marnier is like orange juice, but liquor. I guess that can be nice when you want to spruce up stuff or make a sidecar.

Grand marn. Yay!

Now last week we celebrated Macaroni Day with mac and cheese, which is fine. But today we had to give Mac and Cheese its own day. And Noodles and Co. made that happen with their celebration (as they’ve done for many holidays) that included free Mac ‘n Chee.
