A Tip of the Hat Goes to…
NATIONAL PHARMACIST DAY thanks the people who dispense not only our medicine, but advice and caring. They go to school as long as a medical doctor, deal with customers, insurance plans, pharmaceutical companies, and make sure we have what we need. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.
KISS A GINGER DAY only works if you know the person and you have permission to do so. Otherwise, you could be in a lot of trouble, legally and physically, as those red heads are known to have quite a temper.
On Today’s Menu…
NATIONAL HOT TEA DAY asks if you prefer Earl Gray or Orange Pekoe. Maybe go organic or caffeine free. However you like the second most popular beverage in the world, enjoy a cup.
CURRIED CHICKEN DAY comes in hot and spicy. Onions, spices and of course, curry, are used to dress this fowl in a delicious coat of flavor and taste.
NATIONAL MARZIPAN DAY celebrates the candy made from sugar or honey and ground almonds. These sweet treats are usually formed into the shape of fruits, vegetables and animals. Hmmm, that’s one veggie that may not be so good for you, but it will taste delicious.
