February 7 – National Fettuccine Alfredo Day

 

It’s National Fettuccine Alfredo Day!


 
fettuccine-alfredoFettuccine Alfredo is a delicious pasta dish made with fettuccine (a flat ribbon-cut noodle) tossed with butter, cream, and melted Parmesan cheese.

Italian restaurateur Alfredo di Lelio created Fettuccine Alfredo in 1914 to help his wife regain her appetite after the birth of their first son, and it worked! Soon after he began serving it at his restaurant in Rome. Today, it’s one of the most popular pasta dishes in America, and the invention of the dish is commemorated on February 7 with National Fettuccine Alfredo Day.

Fettuccine Alfredo supposedly became popular in the United States when Hollywood stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks dined at Di Lelio’s restaurant while on their honeymoon. They spread the word when they returned to America.

Fettuccine Alfredo is popular with adults, as well as kids.

August 24 – National Waffle Day

 

Today is National Waffle Day!


 
It’s National Waffle Day! Today is the anniversary of the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron. Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York received his patent for a “device to bake waffles” in 1869. His early waffle iron was used in conjunction with coal stoves, consisted of a griddle and a cover and required flipping of the device to cook both sides of the waffle.

Waffles are a delightful breakfast food and can be paired with almost any topping. Butter and maple syrup, fruit and whipped cream, a big scoop of ice cream, or even a helping of fried chicken—the choice is yours!

Did you know that the first waffles originated in Ancient Greece? It’s true! The Greeks would cook flat cakes called “obelios” between two metal pans held over a fire. Today, all you need is a waffle iron and a yummy recipe for waffle batter.

To celebrate National Waffle Day, cook up some homemade waffles and have breakfast-for-dinner tonight! Enjoy!

Since today is also National Peach Pie Day how about making a nice Caramel Peach Sauce to spoon over your homemade waffles. I grabbed this from Miss Martha herself.

National Blueberry Pancake Day

How in the world can you improve on pancakes?  Just throw a few blueberries into the batter and you’ve added color and antioxidants.

Not to mention how great they’ll taste.

By adding blueberries to your pancakes you get more than the extra sweetness in each bite.  You’ll be getting antioxidants, vitamin C and you’ll be helping your digestion out.

Pancakes are usually topped with a slice of butter and drizzled with syrup before biting into them.  OMGosh!!! I can’t wait. YUMMY!!

Whether you have blueberry pancakes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, I hope you have a great National Blueberry Pancake Day!

Enjoy this pancake recipe from diabeticlivingonline.com

BLUEBERRY FACT:

For those of you watching your carbs, did you know that 50 blueberries (2 oz) have only 10 carbs? It’s true.
