PLOL (piggy laughing out loud) Talk about me a little oinker having a one track mind on food – snorts. I knew if I mentioned PIE you would think eatable, wonderful crusted yummies. You know like apple pie, rhubarb pie, cherry pie or banana cream pie – licks piggy lips. Yummo! But I digress. This post is absolutely *not* about pie of that sort. Shocker huh? You think I’ve lost my little piggy mind – maybe I’ve finally went over the deep end – I’m full? Nah, none of those things. Snorts.
But this day is about pie.
You still think I’m off my rocker huh? Let me explain.
Today’s date is 03.14.2014. Now look closely at that date and tell me what you see. Those that get it, smile and pat yourself on the back – way to go my friends! Those that didn’t, look closer.
Let’s back track a little bit. Math is our friend. 😉 winks Look closer: 03.14.2014. Still nothing?
Maybe you need a visual. Yeah. Okay – here you go:
Therefore, today is PIE day – snorts. A little math humor. I can’t help it. Math is a wonderful tool that mom and my Aunt Tina absolutely love. So, don’t forget to tell people Happy PIE day and then blow their mind.
March 14, 2013 is NATIONAL POTATO CHIP DAY. National Potato Chip Day celebrates the ever popular snack food potato chips. It’s a convenient snack food or a side dish to a sandwich at lunch or dinner. They come in different flavors ranging from plain to barbeque to sour cream and onion. There’s such a wide range! They come regular, crinkled, in sticks, in a bag or in a can. You can buy them in the stores or you can make your own with fresh potatoes.
Did you know that potato chips were first made by Chef George Crum in Saratoga Springs, New York on August 24, 1953. Story goes that the Chef was agitated by a patron who repeatedly kept sending his fried potatoes back because they were too soggy and bland. The Chef decided to slice the potatoes as thin as possible, fry them until they were crisp and season them with extra salt. Contrary to the Chef’s expectation, the patron loved them! They soon became a regular item called Saratoga Chips on the menu at the restaurant. Americans have been in love with them ever since!
And, did you know that pig Bacon absolutely LOVES potato chips? Excuse Bacon’s dad for his lack of clothing – HA! and concentrate on that little deviled ham begging for more chips. I like to hear the little fellow crunching them. Enjoy – roll tape –
