Kev’s Daily Take On 01/25/2023

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

For Fun

OPPOSITE DAY just mixes everything up.  Do something you normally wouldn’t.  It actually sounds kinda fun.

LIBRARY SHELFIE DAY is all about the aesthetics.  The idea is to arrange your books on the shelf to get the most creative picture you can.  After you snap a pic of the books, go ahead and insert yourself into the shot for a true shelfie.

Belly up to the Bar

How about a good cup of coffee with a little kick?  NATIONAL IRISH COFFEE DAY is here to warm us up.  This goes back to Shannon Airport in southwest Ireland where chef Joe Sheridan found a way to keeps his guests warm and relaxed.  A cup of coffee with a shot of Irish Whiskey and some cream floating on top make up this signature drink.  Of course, any alcohol would do but anything else and it is not a true Irish coffee.

On Today’s Menu…

Big Oven

FISH TACO DAY brings the Mexican and seafood culinary worlds together.  Cook your own or go out and celebrate in style at your favorite place that makes these.
