March flew by, didn’t it? I guess that’s what happens when you’re having fun – and celebrating a new holiday every. single. day. Let’s keep up the momentum as we enter the final week of the month!
March 25: Waffle Day
Don’t waffle, eat one! Whether you prefer Belgian or Liège, Stroopwafel or Eggo, there’s no judging today. The best part about this holiday is that you can elaborate and get a little imaginative; if chicken and waffles are novel to you, just think what other flavors and combinations are possible. Whether starting with different batter (cinnamon roll, cornbread, brownie, donuts, carrot cake), choosing new items to mix in the recipe (chocolate, bacon, ham and cheese, herbs), or garnishing the waffles with elaborate toppings (mac and cheese, apple and prosciutto, chili cheese, peanut butter cups) you’ll find the options are endless! What type of waffle will you be making today?
March 26: Spinach Day
I celebrate sweets a lot on here, so I figured it was time to balance things out. Consider this a cleanse after yesterday’s probable carb/sugar overload. Spinach belongs to the goose-foot family, which I’ve never, ever heard of. Another fun fact: According to the internet, China produces 85% of the world’s spinach. This leafy veggie also delivers tons of nutrients, vitamins (A, C, E, K, and B6), calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium, for starters. I’m not entirely sure of what those all do, but they sound impressive! And they clearly do Popeye a lot of good!
March 27: Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day
“How Can I Miss You If You Won’t Go Away?”, “I Bought the Boots That Just Walked Out On Me,” “My Tears Have Washed ‘I Love You’ Off The Blackboard Of My Heart,” “You Can’t Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd,” “Velcro Arms, Teflon Heart,” “My Every Day Silver Is Plastic,” “I’m Just A Bug On The Windshield Of Life.” These are just a small, safe for work sampling of the nutty country song titles out there. Can anyone explain to me why there are so many quirky ones? Was there some sort of contest for the most outrageous title or something? Some of these have to be a joke, right? What’s the weirdest song title you’ve ever heard?
