To truly celebrate BUZZARDS DAY, we must journey to Ohio, where it all began. Walter Nawalaniec, a patrolman for Cleveland Metroparks, informed the press he had observed that the buzzards returned from their migration on the same exact day every year. Almost 9,000 people came out to birdwatch in 1957 and have been returning ever since. The Chamber of Commerce decided that pancakes and sausage would be a good breakfast to eat while waiting for the birds and to this day, that is the official breakfast of Buzzards Day.
On Today’s Menu…
Just imagine a warm pear poached in syrup, topped with vanilla ice cream, and drizzled with chocolate sauce. If that sounds good to you, go ahead, and celebrate NATIONAL PEARS HELENE DAY. This dish was created by Chef Auguste Escoffier in 1864, who was inspired by the operetta, La belle Helene, and sounds intriguing enough to taste.
NATIONAL PEANUT LOVERS DAY celebrates the nut that is also a healthy snack. You can eat them plain, roasted, honey-roasted, boiled, put inside of M&Ms, salted, lightly salted and many more ways. Grab a handful and snack away.
