Kev’s Daily Take On 03/09/2023

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.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

Celebrate You with…

NATIONAL GET OVER IT DAY tells us to let it go.  Let that stress go.  Let that aggravation go.  Is that sour taste you have in your mouth or that gnawing feeling in the pit of your stomach worth the health problems?  It may take time or some innovative problem solving, but whatever is holding you back or plaguing your existence, needs to be put in the rearview mirror and left in the dust – you are worth it.

For Fun

Barbara Millicent Roberts was all the buzz at the 1959 American International Toy Fair in New York when she made her debut.  NATIONAL BARBIE DAY marks the occasion when Ruth Handler’s creation set the doll industry on its head.  Barbie was the first toy to have adult features and one of the first to rely on TV advertising for its marketing.  She made it into the Toy Hall of Fame in 1998.

On Today’s Menu…

No need to get crabby over this one – NATIONAL CRAB MEAT DAY is a succulent taste of the sea.  Break into some king crab legs or dig into some tasty crab cakes.  1.5 million tons of this meat are consumed worldwide every year, so – there must be something to this crustacean.

How about NATIONAL MEATBALL DAY to keep things rolling?  Spaghetti and meatballs, meatball sandwiches, Swedish meatballs (from IKEA) or my favorite – sweet and sour meatballs.  I make my meatballs like my burgers and meatloaf.  Mix the burger with milk and egg – add Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, pepper, breadcrumbs, onion powder and onion soup mix.  Form into any size and shape you want, cook, and enjoy.

POPCORN LOVERS DAY is for those who savor the popped goodness of these kernels.  Pop a batch, add butter and enjoy in front of your favorite show.
