National Curried Chicken Day

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m into the National Days. It has added something new to focus on. Things at work (remember I’m a middle school teacher) are kind of crazy since the holiday break and I need something weird to relax my brain!

I typically am the one to make our curried chicken dish but this time John decided to try a new recipe – I think the only difference was the combination of spices. It was just as yummy! We served it over cauliflower instead of rice.

Playing with Instagram Stories

OH MY! I’ve been playing with Instagram stories to post the pictures for National Hot Tea Month. I can see how people get sucked in! The sparkling filters are beautiful! BUT I am spending too much time formatting the images for this.


Now to figure out how to make this youtube embed smaller.

Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day!

As you know, we occasionally look at the Days of the Year website to see if there is a “Day” we want to celebrate.

Today is “Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day“!  Now how can anyone question this???

This day was started as a way to raise awareness for childhood cancers.

“Life’s short, eat Dessert First” is a phrase that has been bandied about by a lot of people for reasons both flippant and serious.  Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day is one of the more serious, serving to increase awareness about childhood cancer.  For children for whom every day is a blessing, it only makes sense to indulge in life’s little pleasures, and Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast day brings that opportunity to everyone.  Here is the link to their website.

So about 9 am we saw this; about 10 am John went to the store to get ice cream, bananas, and whipped cream; about 10:45, we are sitting down to breakfast!  (there is ice cream under the whipped cream!)
