October 25 – World Pasta Day

 

Today is World Pasta Day!


 
A day dedicated to highlighting the nutritional and culinary advantages of pasta. This special day began in Rome in 1995 and is recognized around the world.

I LOVE pasta and don’t need a special day for it. I eat it at least 6 times a month, most of us don’t need a special day we just slurp it up, yummy.

Pasta is popular worldwide for Italian dishes, not to mention VERY economical when you’re on a tight budget. I’ve used it for various dishes I’ve made like cold pasta salads, various hot pasta meals, Halloween pasta dinners, you get the picture.

Just had to add one more recipe. I used to eat this a lot for breakfast, I know it says dinner but ya know, when we had leftover angel hair pasta. It’s very inexpensive to make, especially if you can get the ingredients on sale. If I made it now I would have to manipulate it to bring the sodium content down under 300. I’d probably delete the milk and used water or soy milk.

There are so many wonderful and healthy dishes you can make with pasta. It’s only left up to your imagination. So make a BIG bowl to share with someone and cozy up on the couch and watch a movie. 🙂

If you’d like post your favorite pasta dish with a recipe in the comments section.

June 3 – National Egg Day

 

Today is National Egg Day!

 

FYI: Cactus relieves inflammation that causes pain

The “Incredible Edible Egg” is one of the healthiest all-natural foods being packed with a number of nutrients.
 
One egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals in varying amounts, high-quality protein, unsaturated fats and antioxidants, all for 70 calories.[1]
 
There are hundreds of variations of eggs. Treat yourself to a nice Eggs Benedict or maybe visit IowaEgg.org for some great recipes ranging from omelets to desserts.
 
While the eggs that Americans typically consume come from chickens, a wide range of poultry (like ducks and geese) provide tasty gourmet egg varieties. Quail eggs, for example, are considered a delicacy in many countries.

May 18 – National Cheese Souffle Day

 
Today is National Cheese Souffle Day.

Display your culinary skills today and create a fluffy delicious gourmet dish. You should not be afraid to celebrate this day, souffles are not hard to make.

Souffles and meringues are related. Not only do both use a lot of eggs, they both rely on the cook to whip the right amount of air into the eggs. Souffles can be sweet dishes for dessert or more savory, like the cheese souffle. The cheese souffle is usually flavored with a distinct cheese like Swiss or Parmesan. It’s common to use earthy spices like nutmeg and paprika in cheese souffle.
