“But fried hog’s feet were nearly the best of hog killing. After boiling tender, the feet were split lengthwise in half, rolled in sifted cornmeal, salted and peppered, and fried crisp in plenty of boiling hot fat.

There is only 7 more days left in January, and maybe it’s time for those who are in the restaurant/bar business to sell smoothies for those who can use a healthy drink that already feeling the drain in the new year.
A nice chocolate peanut butter smoothie may just do the trick for the needed boast that everyone needs after a long cold winter. Make it a combo please and add a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with the smoothie.

Ha! Beer Can Appreciation Day? What’s that?
Are you a beer can drinker or beer can collector?
Yes today is also beer can appreciation day which there is so many brands of beers you can buy and drink.
The beer can design that people collect and appreciate the art work of these beer cans that maybe one day will be worth lots of money! Who knows…… I have a Sprite pop can that has the Toronto Raptors logo on it when they first broke into the NBA basketball league as a special limited edition can.
Any offers????
Talking about beer can design, is there one in your mind that stands out or you may have as a collector? Feel free to leave a comment.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and hope to see you back here tomorrow, don’t forget to follow me……in the mean time, have an amazing awesome day and celebrated life every day because there is a National food/beverage or special holiday every day!

For event planners use these days as part of your planning, when you meet with your client discuss the date that they have chosen falls under this National day and then explain why not create the theme around this day!
Now you helped the client nail down a theme and also part of the meal planning, for example like today is National Blonde Brownie day, so speak to the chef and ask them to do blonde brownie for the dessert for the event, why not add a little spice to it and be creative with the title of the event and name it something like: The Celebration of Blondie’s Day! Now I got you thinking ….. can you come up with some great titles with using today’s National Blonde Brownie Day & Celebration of Life Day! Break the ice and be the first to leave your comments in the comments area on what you come up with….. This is a great exercise for event planners or anyone who plans parties, festivals, events, conferences, grand openings, weddings and the list goes on……..and so do life!
