Happy National Cocoa Day

And by this I mean the stuff you drink, not the actual cocoa powder (although it’s worth its own celebration).

It’s quite cold here in Chucktown – had to scrape frost off my windshield this morning.  Happily, there was a tin of Hershey’s™ Cocoa (the baking stuff) so I made myself a cup of their Perfectly Chocolate Hot Cocoa (recipe provided herein for your convenience):

  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Hershey™ Cocoa
  • Dash salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract

Mix the sugar, cocoa and salt in a large mug. Heat the milk in the microwave on high for 1½ minutes (or until hot) gradually add the milk t the cocoa mixture and stir well. Add the vanilla and enjoy.

Maybe you’re wondering if there really needs to be a methodology to make hot cocoa from scratch. YES there is and here is why. It’s necessary to mix together the sugar with the cocoa powder and then add HOT milk to the mixture because otherwise the cocoa will seize up and you’ll have clumps that (so help me) you can beat until kingdom come and they’ll still be there. It’s a chemistry thing and I’m not going into it – but the actual reasons are out there on the inerwebz, so you can check it out if necessary.

OK – now that we’re done with that, the other day I was hanging out of FB, admiring the craftiness of some of my friends, and then this adorable Felt Hot Cocoa Ornament from Flamingo Toes popped into my feed:

Cocoa Ornament from Flamingotoes

The photo isn’t mine – it’s from Flamingo Toes. Mine won’t be this perfect, but I’m going to try.

 

 

Isn’t this adorable!  I desperately want to make it.  Yes, all the stories are true – I can’t sew to save my life.  But that’s all about to change because I really really REALLY want to make this.  So, this afternoon I’m headed to Michaels to get the stuff needed.  Yes, I will post a pic when its done and no promises that it will be done today (I’m hoping by Christmas).

Anyhoo… here’s hoping that if it’s chilly in your neck of the woods that you’re keeping warm with some cocoa. And if it’s not chilly, well blast the AC until you’re shivering, whip up a mug of the hot chocolaty goodness and think of snowflakes.

Some Fun Things to Celebrate in December

Can you believe it’s been a whole year of tasty happenings? More importantly, what am I going to do next year? And how will all my faithful readers know what to celebrate when if I don’t post these handy reminders? (OK, maybe I’ll figure out the Page function in WP and put them there for posterity – I don’t know).

December brings some wonderful deliciousness; I am also happy to report that there are no whiney appeals to our better consciousness this month.

  • National Fruit Cake Month (say what you will, it’s an important fixture)
  • National Egg Nog Month (without the You-know-what!!!)
  • Cookie Cutter Week First Week

And now for some Daily Devotions:

  • December 1: National Pie Day – Sort of maybe (there is some real controversy here – I’ve always held that 23 January is National Pie Day – and this was a big deal because it was my Daddy’s birthday AND pie was his favorite dessert. So, as far as this blog is concerned, 23 January is National Pie Day – but you should bake a pie today anyway because every day is a good day for pie)
  • December 4: National Cookie Day (dances with joy!)
  • December 8: National Chocolate Brownie Day (Oh Happy Day!)
  • December 9: National Pastry Day
  • December 12: National Cocoa Day
  • December 14: National Bouillabaisse Day (yeah, whatever)
  • December 15: National Cupcake Day
  • December 16: National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day (except insects)
  • December 17: National Maple Syrup Day
  • December 18: National Roast Suckling Pig Day
  • December 19: National Hard Candy Day
  • December 20: National Fried Shrimp Day
  • December 22: National Date Nut Bread Day (I don’t actually like it but lots of people do)
  • December 24: National Egg Nog Day (Yes – I will share my awesome recipe)
  • December 26: National Candy Cane Day
  • December 27: National Fruit Cake Day
  • December 28: National Chocolate Candy Day

Some Boozy Festivities…

  • Lager Beer Week Second Week
  • December 5: Repeal (of Prohibition) Day
  • December 10: National Lager Day
  • December 20: National Sangria Day
  • December 24: National Egg Nog Day (because some crazy people ruin eggnog with booze)
  • December 31: National Champagne Day

How the Heck did these get their own day?

  • December 6: Microwave Oven Day
  • December 30: National Bicarbonate Of Soda Day (Baking Soda)

Some Seriously Misplaced Observances…

  • December 1: Eat a Red Apple Day (September = Apples)
  • December 3: National Apple Pie Day (see note above)
  • December 6: National Gazpacho Day (Nothing scream WINTER like a SUMMER SOUP)
  • December 7: National Cotton Candy Day (because all the Fairs are in what season?)
  • December 13: Ice Cream and Violins Day (Ice cream AND violins?)
  • December 21: National Hamburger Day (shouldn’t this be on Memorial Day?)
  • December 25: National Pumpkin Pie Day (Thanksgiving is in NOVEMBER!)

 

Maeve’s note: There is no “Day” (National or otherwise) to recognize the deliciousness that is Sticky Toffee Pudding (I had it once as a small child and have never forgotten it). I’m making it this year for Christmas. I’m sure the (dead) Irish relatives are going to hurl (metaphysical) things in my general direction, but they can stuff it. If you haven’t ever had Sticky Toffee Pudding before, maybe you should make it this year as well. I’ll share the recipe I plan to use later on in the month.

This Past Weekend Chez Maeve

Yesterday was National Espresso Day and I consumed rather a lot of it.  With extreme pleasure.  Was kind of wired all night, but hey – there’s always a price to be paid and it’s not like my Nook and Kindle (trademarks implied) aren’t loaded to the hilt with tons of unread books.

The Lovely Mrs. C and I were discussing her Thanksgiving menu and then she went and posted hers AND her method for roasting turkey.  I had planned to blog my menu this weekend, but then things got busy here Chez Maeve and also I got a bit distracted.  I did clean out the refrigerator, though and I also went to Bed Bath & Beyond and bought this cool refrigerator Lazy Susan thingie which is totally fantastic (if I get around to taking a pic of what a nice thing it did for my fridge then I’ll post it).  Then I actually made the menu, and the shopping list and then dragged myself to WALMART IN THE MIDDLE OF A SATURDAY AFTERNOON and by the time that was over, well, I wasn’t good for much else than a very nice Redds Apple Ale (or two).  I also went to the grocery store and it was almost as fatiguing.

OK – on with the menu.  I am hostessing Thanksgiving this year and this is a good thing from my perspective (actually it’s a good thing from everyone’s perspective).  My (former) in-laws are going to be here (I kept them in the divorce).  We will NOT be having cupcakes this year.  We will be having:

  • Roast Turkey (and if I could figure out a way to get the FIL to deep-fry it that would be even better, but it’s sort of rude to invite someone to dinner and then ask him to cook, even if he is your family).
  • Stuffing (not Dressing (there is a difference) – I don’t make it and nobody really cares all that much)
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Gravy
  • Creamed Carrots (maybe with pearl onions)
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Green Bean Casserole (tricked out the way we like it with cheese and water chestnuts)
  • Macaroni & Cheese (because Iseult paled considerably when I mentioned that maybe we didn’t need to have it)

Upon reviewing the menu I noticed a rather conspicuous lack of green anything, so I’m adding some Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Dessert is tricky – people like different things…

  • Pecan Pie from The Silver Palate Cookbook (it’s really the best)
  • Libby’s Pumpkin Pie
  • Apple Pie (because otherwise my Mother will shoot lightning bolts at me)
  • Oreo Truffles (because Iseult doesn’t like pie – I know…it freaks me out too)

So there you have it.  Nothing exceptionally nouveau.  But it’s exactly what everyone wanted (and I opened it up for inputs from everyone)

Well, that’s all for now.  Guess I should report to my little part-time job 🙂

Happy National Sandwich Day

In honor of National Sandwich Day, I give you a performance of “Sandwiches”…

(Not my video, but wish it was)

Want to sing along?  Well here are the lyrics.

Sandwiches

Lyrics by Bob King

Sandwiches are beautiful,
Sandwiches are fine.
I like sandwiches, I eat them all the time;
I eat them for my supper and I eat them for my lunch;
If I had a hundred sandwiches, I’d eat them all at once.

I’m a roaming and a rambling
A nd a wandering all along,
And if you care to listen,
I will sing a happy song.
I will not ask a favor
And I will not ask a fee,
But if you have a sandwich
Won’t you give a bite to me?

Sandwiches are beautiful,
Sandwiches are fine.
I like sandwiches, I eat them all the time;
I eat them for my supper and I eat them for my lunch;
If I had a hundred sandwiches, I’d eat them all at once.

Once I went to England,
I visited the Queen,
I swear she was the grandest lady
That I’ve ever seen.
I told her she was beautiful
And could not ask for more,
She handed me a sandwich
And she threw me out the door.

Sandwiches are beautiful,
Sandwiches are fine.
I like sandwiches, I eat them all the time;
I eat them for my supper and I eat them for my lunch;
If I had a hundred sandwiches, I’d eat them all at once.

A sandwich may be egg or cheese
Or even peanut butter
But they all taste so good to me,
It doesn’t even matter
Jam or ham or cucumber,
Any kind will do.
I like sandwiches,
How about you?

Sandwiches are beautiful,
Sandwiches are fine.
I like sandwiches, I eat them all the time;
I eat them for my supper and I eat them for my lunch;
If I had a hundred sandwiches, I’d eat them all at once.

Sandwiches are beautiful,
Sandwiches are fine.
I like sandwiches, I eat them all the time;
I eat them for my supper and I eat them for my lunch;
If I had a hundred sandwiches, I’d eat them all at once.

Happy National Bologna Day

From All About the Bullerby Children by Astrid Lindgren

 Chapter 18 – Anna and I go shopping

The shop where we buy sugar and coffee and things like that is in the big village, close to the school.  When Mother needs some groceries she usually asks me to get them for her after school.  But during the summer holidays we have to make a special trip.  One day Mother said, “Lisa, there’s no help for it.  You’ll have to run down to the shop for me.”

It was a beautiful day and I thought it would be fun to go shopping, so I said, “Of course, I’d love to.  What do you want?”

Mother said we’d probably better write a list.  But we couldn’t find a pencil, so I said, “Never mind.  I can remember it all.”

Then Mother told me all the things I should buy:  six ounces of yeast and a piece of Bologna sausage of the best quality, a package of ginger, some sewing needles, a tin of anchovies, a bag of almonds, and a bottle of vinegar.

“I’m sure I’ll remember it all, “I said.

Just then Anna came rushing into our kitchen and asked me if I’d like to go to the shop with her.

“Yes,” I said.  “I was just going to ask you to come with me.”

Anna was wearing her new red cap and carried a basket on her arm.  I put on my new green cap and took a basket on my arm too.

Ann was going to buy soap, a pound of coffee, two pounds of sugar, and two yards of elastic tape.  Also she was to get a piece of Bologna sausage of the best quality, just as I was.  Anna hadn’t written down what she was going to buy either.

Before we left we went up to Grandpa’s room to ask if there was anything he needed from the shop, and he asked us to buy him some barley-sugar and a bottle of camphor liniment.

Just as we were leaving through the gate, Olaf’s mother came running out on to their porch.

“Are you going to the shop?” she called.

“Yes,” we said.

“Oh, please would you pick up a few things for me?” she asked.

We said we’d love to.  She wanted us to buy a spool of white thread, number 40, and a bottle of vanilla essence.

“And wait, what else was it I wanted?” she said, looking thoughtful.

“A piece of Bologna sausage of the best quality?” I suggested.

“Yes, that was it,” said Olaf’s mother.  “How could you guess?”

Then Anna and I left, and we were a little worried for fear we wouldn’t be able to remember everything.  First we recited all the things to each other out loud, but we soon got tired of that.  We walked along arm in arm, swinging our baskets back and forth.  The sun was shining and the trees smelled good.  Then we made up songs about what we were going to get.  We sang as loud as we could, “A piece of Bologna sausage of the best quality.”  It sounded quite pretty.  This is the way we did it.  First I sang, “A piece of Bologna sausage,” in a slow, romantic melody, and then Anna struck up, “Of the best quality, of the best quality,” in a fast, happy tune.  Sometimes we sang the words in a melody that was good to march to.  But finally we settled for one that was sad all the way through and very beautiful.  It was so beautiful that we almost began to cry.

“My, how sad it is about Bologna sausage,” Anna said when we finally reached the shop,.

There were a lot of people in the shop so we had to wait a long time, really much longer than we should have, because grown-ups seem to think that it doesn’t matter how long children have to wait.  They always push ahead.  But finally Uncle Emil himself came out into the shop.  We know him.  He started to ask how everyone in Bullerby was, and if we had eaten lots of eggs at Easter, and if we weren’t going to get married soon.

“We certainly are not,” we said.

“And what to the ladies wish to buy today?” asked Uncle Emil.  He always talked silly like that, but I like him all the same.  He has a pencil behind his ear and a little red moustache.  He always treats us to aniseed balls that the keeps in a big jar.

First Anna told him everything that she was supposed to buy for her mother and for Grandfather.  Uncle Emil weighed everything and wrapped it in packages while Anna talked.

Then it was my turn to tell him everything I was going to get for Mother and Olaf’s mother. Both Anna and I thought as hard as we could so that we wouldn’t forget anything.  Uncle Emil gave us two aniseed balls apiece, and we left.

When we had walked as far as the fork in the road where we turn to Bullerby, I said, “Anna, do you remember if I bought yeast?”

Anna couldn’t remember at all.  We started squeezing all the packages in my basket.  There was nothing that felt like yeast.  So we had to go back to the store.  Uncle Emil laughed at us and gave us the yeast and some more aniseed balls.  Then we left.

Just as we came to the fork in the road again, Anna cried, “Grandpa’s camphor liniment!”

“I’ve never seen the like,” I said.

There was nothing we could do but go back to the store.  How Uncle Emil laughed at us!  He gave us the camphor liniment and still more aniseed balls.

When we came to the fork in the road the next time Anna looked so frightened that I felt sorry for her.

“Lisa,” she said.  “I’m almost sure that I didn’t buy any sugar.”

“Anna,” I said, “don’t tell me that you didn’t buy the sugar.  You simply must have bought the sugar?”

We squeezed and squeezed the things in Anna’s basket, but there was nothing which felt the least bit sugary.

Uncle Emil almost fell across the counter when he saw us again.  But he gave us the sugar and still more aniseed balls.

“I’d better get out a spare jar of aniseed balls,“ he said, “Because my whole stock is disappearing.”

“Don’t worry, we shan’t come back any more,” Anna said.

Just before we came to the fork in the road again I said, “Anna, let’s run past the fork.  It’s the only way to get by.  Otherwise we’ll think of something else that we’ve forgotten.”

So we ran by the fork.

“It worked!” said Anna.  At last we were on our way home.

“Let’s sing a little more,” said Anna.

We did.  We started with “A piece of Bologna sausage of the best quality,” and it sounded just as beautiful and sad as before.  Anna said that we ought to introduce that song at school and sing it at speech day next year.  We sang and sang and sang while we struggled up the hill towards Bullerby.

And then – just as I bellowed “A piece of Bologna sausage,” extra beautifully – Anna took me by the arm and looked absolutely wild.

“Lisa,” she said, “we haven’t bought any Bologna sausage!”

We sat down by the side of the road and didn’t say anything for a long while.  Then Anna said that she wished no one had ever invented Bologna sausages.

“Why can’t people eat frankfurters instead?” she said.

My, how long the road back seemed this time.  We didn’t sing any more.  Anna said that she did not think that song about the Bologna sausage as at all suitable to sing at school.

“No,” I said, “not at school and not any other place either.  What a ridiculous song!”

When Uncle Emil saw us he held his head, and then he ran to get a new jar of aniseed balls.  But we said that no, thank you, we didn’t care for any more aniseed balls.

“Really?” said Uncle Emil. “What do you want then?”

“Three pieces of Bologna sausage of the best quality,” we said.

“If there is such a thing as good Bologna sausage,” Anna  muttered.

We dragged ourselves homeward.  But when we came to the fork in the road, Anna looked back and said, “Look, there comes John from the mill, driving his ugly old tawny mare!”  John works in a mill that lies on the other side of Bullerby.

“May we have a ride?” we cried when John has caught up with us.

“Jump right in,” said John.

We jumped up on the flour sacks and rode all the way to Bullerby.  I started humming, “A piece of Bologna sausage of the best quality,” but Anna said, “If you sing one more word of that song I’ll push you off the wagon.”

When I came into the kitchen, Mother said, “Goodness, Lisa, what a long time you’ve been gone!”

“No wonder,” I said.  “With all that Bologna sausage to buy.”

When Mother has taken all the things out of the basket she said, “That was a good girl who remembered everything!”

Copyright 1961 by Astrid Lindgren

One of my absolute favoritesThis was one of my very favorite childhood books. And bologna is kind of a quintessential childhood food, isn’t it?  May I suggest that at some point today you relive one of your own happy childhood memories and have something tasty to go along with it?

Happy “Sandwich Made on Long Bread” Day

Also known as “Oh….So That’s Where You’re From” Day.

Let’s take a vote on the matter.


Anyhoo….if you haven’t made lunch plans, here’s the perfect opportunity to indulge!

P.S. – My favorite is meatball with provolone and lots of sauce.

P.P.S. – A Cheesesteak does not count. It’s its own beast.

P.P.P.S. – The meatball wedge DOES count. It’s my blog and I said so. Yes – it’s correctly called a WEDGE!

Tomorrow (04 October) is National Taco Day

My friend Taylor nearly went apoplectic at the thought of Taco Day being omitted from my post about Fun Things to Celebrate in October.

It was actually there, but I couldn’t manage to put the dates in chronological order.  So THANK YOU TAYLOR because otherwise I wouldn’t have noticed until some time later on in the month and that would have sucked big time.

This is my favorite taco recipe – Shrimp Tacos with Citrus Slaw.  Seriously, I’d eat them every night of the week.  And I’m making them tomorrow night.  That slaw, by the way, is killer scrumptious and I make batches of it have with all kinds of stuff (like jerk fish tacos or pulled pork tacos or taco tacos).  Forgot one thing – we put pepper jack cheese on them.  Don’t forget the cheese.

So have a taco tomorrow.  It will make a bad day good, and a good day better.

Edited to add – for my lowish-carbing-and/or-not-wheat-eating friends:  they are awesome stuffed into a lettuce cup.

  • Pumpkin Spice (I promise I won’t rant about it anymore – see round about this time last year)

Note – I know I referenced that there are recipes on this blog and, there are. That being said, I’m rather inconsistent at categorizing and tagging, so finding them might be a bit of a challenge.  Or rather like playing hide-and-seek.

 

EDITED TO ADD:  I hereby extend a massive thank you to Taylor because otherwise I would not have noticed that my days were all out of order and there would have been a very good chance that I’d have missed National Taco Day.  We don’t really want to ponder the terrible ramifications of this.

It’s National Ice Cream Cone Day

Does this mean just the cone or an actual Ice Cream Cone?

Either way, it’s a good excuse to have one (the cone with the ice cream in it).

Hey – let’s have another poll!
