[FHCx302] National Chocolate Day/National Wild Foods Day/National Breadstick Day

IT’S NATIONAL CHOCOLATE DAY, NATIONAL WILD FOODS DAY, AND NATIONAL BREADSTICK DAY!

We’ll make this quick.

Bread is great in many forms. In stick form, especially, bread can absorb a great deal of butter and has low volume to surface area ratio, which makes it have a great crunch on the outside and chewy on the inside. You do have to watch out for the popping can on these puppies.

Dusted with a little bit of garlic bread spread.

Alright, let’s talk wild foods.

Does this count? It says “wild.”

Okay, just kidding. Really, SPom made us some wonderful wild rice this evening to go with our kabob dinner. There’s something that’s really fun and different about wild rice. If you haven’t had it, or it’s been a while, do yourself a favor and try some.

Cooked. Very tasty and hearty.

For chocolate day, and this time it’s national instead of international, we decided to finally put together this beautiful set that AK bought at Target.

We demolished this house pretty quickly and set the ghosts free. It was chocolatey.

[FHCx101] National Cinnamon Crescent Day

Don’t get yourself all twisted up!

IT’S NATIONAL CINNAMON CRESCENT DAY!

Crescents, not croissants. We aren’t talking about the real French stuff. We’re talking Pillsbury Crescents. We downloaded the official Pillsbury Cinnamon Crescent recipe from their site.

We thought the process would’ve been:

  1. Lay out the triangles
  2. Spread on a little filling
  3. Roll ’em up
  4. Bake ’em

But instead it’s using two cans.

  1. Lay out one whole can of dough and smush the perforations away.
  2. Spread filling on top
  3. Lay out the other can as a rectangle on top of that.
  4. Cut 8 strips of the stacked dough-filling-dough
  5. Twist and coil
  6. Bake ’em

We can’t argue with the taste but it was needlessly complicated!
