Not mouse, not moose,
IT’S NATIONAL MOUSSE DAY!
Air bubbles making something tastier? Ridiculous… but true! There’s something about the texture of a mousse that really adds to the experience, and of course the French food scientists would be the ones to come up with it.
As if we’ve never featured Lund’s & Byerly’s amazing bakery before, tonight’s mousse was a special treat from the ol’ LnBs (pronounced, “Ellenby’s”).
He’s so happy that he’s about to be digested!
Look at that beautiful moussey center…
Tomorrow is National Pie Day (we disagree) and National Eat a Red Apple Day!
I’ll have both please.
TODAY IS NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE DAY!
What kind of cupcakes aren’t chocolate? I’m sure they’re good, because they’re cupcakes. But they aren’t chocolate.
Some people defame the cupcake because it isn’t just cake. Some people are uber-hipster and don’t even like the resurgence of cupcakes as a trend because they’re beyond it. If it’s tasty, we’ll eat it. And Lund’s & Byerly’s always has a selection to ogle.
ALL THE CUPCAKES!
We picked out a dirt ‘n worms cupcake.
You’re right, it doesn’t look like much cake made it into this “cupcake.” But it was a lot of chocolate and it was really good.
Tomorrow is Seafood Bisque Day!
IT’S NATIONAL CHERRY POPSICLE DAY!
Remember grape popsicle day? Well the Cherry Lobby must have just been counting days and going, “wait a minute…” before they invented cherry popsicle day.
It hasn’t been too hot outside here. But that makes it easier to eat! If it’s slightly cooler where you eat, you don’t get a sticky red mess all over you, making you look like you just murdered something.
Tomorrow is National Banana Lovers’ Day and National Pots De Creme Day!
Sweet with sweet.
IT’S NATIONAL PEACHES AND CREAM DAY!
What a great way to open the door into summer with a summertime treat of peaches and cream. Many fruits have sweet match-ups. Chocolate and strawberries, apples and cinnamon, pumpkin and… nutmeg? Whatever. Peaches and cream is a jewel of the south, so we picked out the most Georgia Peach lookin’ peach we could find.
Slice it up.
Mound of whipped cream. Boom!
A refreshing taste of summer! Go enjoy some.
Tomorrow is National Chocolate Eclair Day and National Onion Rings Day!
IT’S NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY AND NATIONAL EGG DAY AND NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MACAROON DAY!
Let’s start this in order of our day. Breakfast!
SPAK are big fans of eggs. For the most part, we tend toward the “gooeyer-the-better” team. We like over-easy eggs that just ooze when you stab them. That’s really the best way to do it. Occasionally, when AK reeeeally likes SP, she’ll make Eggtoast in the morning. Eggs on toast. It’s the best.
Oops, one broke.
Next up! Midmorning snack. Donuts. Doughnuts. D’oh-nuts.
Everyone and their mother is talking about National Donut Day. It seems to be the most popular food holiday so far this year. But SPAK has been doing this before it was cool, and today is no exception. Why Donut Day? Started in 1938, created by the Salvation Army that would supply donuts to those who served in World War I. We don’t have many of those people left anymore, but we can still eat this sugary confection in honor of them. Whether you like cake-type (you’re wrong), yeast, glazed, long john, bear claws, apple fritter…
Happy Doughnut Day!
(^Video is also appropriate; Cousin SParles just named his new baby Nathaniel. Next one will be Superfly?)
Lastly, we revisit the macaroon. And this time we are going full-on coconuts. This recipe, introduced by cousin SPamy, comes from SkinnyTaste. SPamy makes these for Passover at the yearly gathering, and they are addictive, to say the least. You have to be very careful that you don’t end up eating the whole batch!
What a sweet day.
Tomorrow is National Cheese Day and National Cognac Day!
