Chocolate Wasted

It’s National Chocolate Covered Anything Day! Chocolate should steal the hot sauce logo because people really do put chocolate on everything.  From insects to pancakes to steak, I’ve heard it all.  You might as well get it in and celebrate.  Pretty soon January will be here and you’ll be fasting or working on that 2018 diet. So, for today, break out the dark, the sweet, the milk, the white, the powdered, the liquid, all the chocolate of the world, get chocolate wasted (stop short of a diabetic coma) and…

No, a bunny did not just have a field day on your screen.  It’s National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day!  What a very specific holiday, I know. But, nevertheless, you are encouraged, today, to go out and eat chocolate and raisins.

I thought it would be nice to post a bunch of recipes that call for chocolate covered raisins, but other than white chocolate covered raisin oatmeal cookies, trail mix, and reindeer poop, there weren’t many choices.   Celebrate today by making up a new dish involving chocolate covered raisins and posting your invention in the comments section below.  We may want to give it a whirl.

Eat well and holiday on my friends!

For the Foodies

Good Morning!  Today we celebrate Let’s Eat Right Day.  I’m also choosing to celebrate the related food holidays of National Clam Chowder Day and National Chocolate Covered Nut Day.  Not a contradiction if your soup is low-fat and your chocolate is dark.  And, just in case the two previous February booze holidays didn’t encompass your beverage of choice, it’s Open That Bottle Day, too.  What’s different about this beverage holiday? The husband and wife team that created it were very specific.  This is not a day to get sloshed alone, this is a day to gather and fellowship with friends and family.

Have fun and holiday on my friends!
