Don’t Swaddle a Cop

Just so I’m very clear, I’m referring to pork when I say it’s Pigs in a Blanket Day! Traditionally referring to sausages wrapped in pancakes, this culinary delight has evolved to include hot dogs, miniature wieners, and Italian Sausages wrapped in anything from a pancake to a bagel.    I think it goes without saying that today should definitely be celebrated by eating an appetizing interpretation of swine in dough.

THERE ARE SO MANY RECIPES!!  Chefs have really gone out of their way to make these staple freezer to stove to plate appetizers gourmet.  For so many reasons, this guy is probably my favorite. Talk about authentic.

Evidence shows pork in pastries have been circulating the globe since the 1600’s.  Be inspired and take your piglet to another culinary level.  Here’s what I’m thinking of trying tonight:  diced tomatoes encased in an Italian Sausage that is then wrapped in mozzarella cheeses before being placed in a flaky, puffed pastry casing.  Eat creatively and …



Stick to the “White” Ones

It’s Tell A Lie Day and I don’t know why there is a holiday dedicated to those who have mastered the art of prevarication, but maybe it is so they can “seem” right for once in their lives.  kirk-frost

We all know someone who is most likely to tell the truth when pigs grow wings.   The kind of person who walks into the room saying, “Good Morning,” and you know you must do your due diligence by looking out the window to check for daylight.

I personally don’t enjoy a lie unless it is connected to a hilarious joke or a surprise that ends with a really spectacular present.  So, if you choose to indulge in today’s holiday, I suggest you stick to the little “white” ones, like, “Yes, you do look great today,” “I thought that was a new haircut,” and “I’m only five minutes away.”


I suggest you stay away from lies that can result in life-changing events, like losing your job, relationship, or life.  You should also avoid people who tend to carry lie disks around in their pockets hurling them left and right.  You should probably stay away from them on any regular day too.

You may also choose to celebrate by watching movies featuring liars, like, Big Fat Liar (2002), The Usual Suspects (1995), or a documentary on Lance Armstrong.  Whatever floats your boat. Just remember however you choose to observe today, the consequences could last longer than April 4th, 2017.

I hope you have a terrible, rotten, no-good day.







Pigs, Peanut Butter, and Fruit

NO! This is not a breakfast recipe!  Today is the day we finally give pigs their proper recognition and honor them for it is National Pig Day!  This highly intelligent domesticated animal is getting his 24 hours of fame and enjoying his nationally recognized holiday.  By the look in his eye, he is probably suggesting that if your stomach should begin to growl while glancing at his photo, you should take this opportunity to celebrate one of the other holidays recognized on March first, such as peanut butter or fruit compote.


Yes, we are celebrating National Peanut Butter Day and National Fruit Compote Day, too! Now if my friend, Snuggles, starts to make your mouth water and the sound of popping grease reverberate in your ear, pump the breaks and grab a jar of peanut butter or fruit cup instead.

Dedicated to my cousin, who wanted a pet pig.
